Was going to get my gun license and get my first rifle so I can go to the range and practice when I have free time while still going to school and working. I figure all the practice I can get will be worth it.

Anyone have any knowledge about rifles?.. cause I don't know dick. 

Sure, I've shot a few different types of guns at the ranges a handful of times, but when it comes down to it. I don't know anything, so any info helps!

Basically my goal is accuracy

Basically my goal is accuracy and long range. I'd really like to work my way towards becoming a sniper. I know it's a hard task and not everyone can do it but I figure if I give it my best shot, I'll have no regrets. Something to work towards as a goal for myself throughout all this. 

My uncles go to the range quite a bit and they shoot anything from close to medium range, so I don't know if they'd be much help in choosing a rifle for long distance shooting. I'll give them an ask anyways but I thought you guys, especially MW, would have better experience and knowledge on this topic.

You should just get your basics down flawlessly and go from there. Or get an air rifle and hunt pigeons and rabbits around your neighborhood

Okay, that would save me a lot of money too. Been looking at a few prices and they are pretty expensive. I'll stick to the basics for some time first. I heard regardless of whether you are in the army or not you still need to get a gun license in Canada. So, I think I'll still have to take the test and what not. I'll have to get that done sometime next month or sooner.

Get a .22 man. Cheap as hell

Get a .22 man. Cheap as hell plus cheap ammo. Watch some safety videos or take a class beforehand so you don't shoot yourself or someone else.

Yep was gonna recommend a .22 as well. Go out and shoot some birds or small animals, then cut them up and cook them.

I'd go somewhere and pick a few up see how they feel. Not sure if that's allowed at some places but I'd def want to try it out, at least handle it before buying.

Yeah I'll see if I can try a bunch out or at least hold and get a feel for them. I know there are a couple different places around my house so I'll make sure to go in but you need your license before you can dabble with rifles. The test is apparently easy.
