Probably a gun, it probably beats the bow in strength, and you will miss less as the bullets go faster, ammo is not a problem for me either

It depends on the amount of money and time you wish to use.

 

GUN-

8 copper coins for a musket ball (7 damage) (Arms dealer)

Flies straight until hits an enemy.

Gun itself is espensive until you have a lot of money.

Cannot pick up ammo after use.

 

BOW-

10 copper coins to buy for an individual wooden arrow (4 damage) (Merchant)

     [NOTE: You can create 4 flaming arrows by using a torch and 4 wooden ones (7 damage)

"When fired, most arrows will break (40-50%), some will go out (30-50%), and a few will stay lit (20%).Bows can be crafted." (terraria.wikia.com)]

 

Each arrow (I believe) has a 66.6 chance of picking it up again after it 's used.
