What is the most fun gun to shoot at a indoor range? I will be hunting in 6mos or so, but I want to get a gun now and practice and blow off stress. A hunter I know reccomended a 30-06 for all around hunting, boar and deer and stuff. What do the sages say? I like shotguns, as I can hunt birds with my bro in indy, but what do you all think?

if you can get both that'd be ideal, if i were you i'd buy whichever gun you would be using the most.

Remington 870 if you want a pump Remington 11-87 if you want an automatic. Both can be used for several applications, which may better suit your needs. If you are really wanting a high powered rifle go with a .30-06. It has load offerings for anything walking.

They are not going to let you shoot a 30-06 in an indoor range.  If you want a fun gun to shoot indoors a 9mm is cheap and fun.

You can get 500 rounds of 22LR for $10 if you want to do a lot of range time.

They won't? Damn, thanks for the heads up though. What about a shotgun, will they let me shoot that there?

typically indoor ranges will limit you to handguns

I see. And in Chicago you can't own a handgun unless it has been registered in the city before.

not a bad deal.  Ranges by me will only let you shoot handguns and the largest handgun you shoot is a 44 mag

If you can find somewhere that will let you shoot a .22LR rifle that's what I'd go for. You can get a rifle for cheap and ammo costs next to nothing compared to centerfire ammo like .30-06 A .22LR has practically no recoil so you can fire literally hundreds of rounds in a single session. Since you plan to go hunting in the future try shooting from every conceivable position you can think of. Prone, sitting, standing, kneeling, with the rifle supported on something, with no support. You never know what position you will have to use in the field. If you plan to hunt anything bigger than a rabbit you will eventually have to buy something else but a .22 is a cheap way to become a good shot if you put in the trigger time.
