      .22 rimfire, a pump 12 gauge and a 30/06 rifle and you will be covered for most north american game species

        Hard to beat a bolt action .243 Win, .260 Rem, 7mm-08, or .270 Win. Perhaps a Ruger 77 - relatively inexpensive, good quality, accuracy and nice looking walnut stock. I think a person's first centerfire and shotgun should either be handed down though the family or very nice quality guns to take pride in over a lifetime. Should be inclined to take excellent care of them right off the bat.

          The old Savage 24 which was an over and under combination gun was an excellent all round firearm. My cousins each owned a 410 over .22 Savage it was a highly versatile rifle. It seems to me that it has been offered in 20 guage with a 30-30 barrel as well.

            if you are looking for a high powered rifle, the best guns you can get would be either a .243, a .30-06, or a .30-30. these are all common cartridges that you can buy almost anywhere. the nice thing about the 30-06 is there are many different bullet sizes so you aren't limited to the smaller north american game, but can also step up and hunt something bigger. for a shotgun, either a 20 or a 12 gauge would be your best choice.
