Not sure if I can ask this here but I can't find one,and don't know where to look.
I've been told the have plenty of stopping power,aren't to expensive from what I've seen,and are cheap to shoot.
Seems like a good first rifle.
Or suggest something that meets that criteria.
I'd appreciate it,I really want to get the ball rolling on this.

I have an M44, but don't consider it a home defense weapon or a good first rifle. Most people get a .22LR because they are inexpensive to buy and cheap to shoot. Everyone and their mother has a River 10/22. Great first rifle with plenty of accessories readily available. As for home defense a pump shotgun or revolver are both reliable and will have the stopping power. Research, ask questions and get out to your local range. Most people in the gun community are more than happy to help and even let you try out their stuff. You can also rent at some local ranges. Good luck and be safe.
