Best out of the box production gun

A Gen 3 Glock 34 is a really decent choice for a new shooter, especially if you can pick one up in the classifieds that already has sights and a trigger. They're not the best gun for racing, but they're ridiculously reliable, super easy to maintain, they last forever, and the classifieds are littered with good deals on glock mags, holsters, sights, etc. It's like the Honda Civic of race guns. Sure it's not the best, but it's a practical choice.

If I were coming to the sport with the intention of become a serious competitor, I would go with a Stock 2 or a Shadow. They're undeniably better tools for racing, and the extra cost of the gun is insignificant to the cost of the ammo and match fees you're going to spend shooting for even one season.
