I was thinking about going to a local gun shop and looking around, handling a few guns and then seeing if I could find them online somewhere, maybe second-hand? If there are any tips and sites I should be looking at for second-hand guns?? Budget of maybe 100ish. Do guns depreciate in value much etc??? Sorry for the n00b post on what seems to be a well-informed site!

your probably better of visiting a local gun club. have a look st whats in use etc
see if something takes your fancy.
do you know if you just want to shoot / plink, do hft or ft etc?.

100 wont get you much however.
think more 150 - 400 for a reasonable gun and 50+ for a basic scope.
dont be surprised or put off to see people using stuff well over 1000+, we all started somewhere.
