I know where to get an SKS with an M4 stock and assault scope raised so the peep sight is still functional a banana clip and 10 boxes of ammo for $375 bucks.

I also know where to get one brand new out of box for $425.

Not selling them, just telling you they aren't that expensive.

ok so I'm gonna break ranks here and recommend an AR 15... pm me if you want to know how to get one gun that fires .22lr and 5.45 by 39 russian for well under 1000 dollars... I recommend the ar in 5.45 because it is a combat round that costs less than a quarter of what .308

ps.: same weapon can be field retrofitted to fire 5.56 and a variety of other calibers at around 300 a pop

Hungarian amd-65 cost is $450-$500 new(I paid $449 for has a forward pistol grip and is there version of an ak47...same round and everything.
The semi-auto pistol for me would be a .45 1911, tauras makes one for about $500 new(I paid $430 for mine ...however both guns can be picked up at the same time and a gun dealer will do it all for $1000. if you are able to barter and if he wants a sell (those prices are before tax and they will adjust the price for a sell).
He will probably throw in a couple of boxes of ammo for free if he has had them for awhile in the store.
I know because I was able to do exactly that not very long ago.
You need to find a dealer or a gun show close to you and go to it and you will find what you are looking for....just do your homework first, so you know the guns you want and what a fair price is for them.

I assume if you have to decide one or the other, I would want my lady
to learn how to use a side arm first. The Ruger p- 95 would be perfect as
a one time spend. A very durable, very accurate, weapon. The 9mm is
perfect for a novice to learn on while still having some punch after they have become skilled. She will love it if at all interested. My partner has one and when he lends it over I hate to give it back. lol

Might I suggest an alternative. Due to your post regarding the teaching of archery and then learning fencing as well, I'd like to recommend forgetting the rifle. Instead, consider purchasing two handguns, one for your daughter and one for yourself. I'd recommend something along the lines of the CZ 75 in 9mm. Add a couple extra magazines to each and an in expensive holster/mag carrier combo. Once you've taught her the fundementals I like to suggest looking for a local IDPA or IPSC club match to attend and watch. These can be a great place to learn safety and marksmanship. It's also a great time to spend with your kid. Just a thought.

For the side arm I would recomend the Bersa Thunder 9. In my experience Bersa is a reliable gun that is actually a much better performer than Ruger. I've known several people that owned the Thunder 380, Thunder 9, and Model 83. The down side is that you can not really run el cheapo ammo through them. Brown Bear and Wolf tend to hang up and foul up terribly. I have seen a used Thunder 9 for about $250 and a used Thunder 380 for $195.

Rifles aren't my forte, but you can still find Ruger 10/22s for about $189 - $229. Last time I was at a gun show I know a guy was selling the 10/22 chamberred for .22mag for about $269.
