i have a bow and a rifle....dont have a muzzleloader and would like to top off my trio of weapons....

problem is ...i have no idea where to start....what to look for what extra expenses are involved after the gun is purchased....heck...dont even know how to load one....im guessing its not too difficult....the guns range from 299 up to 799....

any help would be greatly appreciated....
