Picking Out First Press

I've been saving for my first reloading press and want some opinions. On one hand I'm thinking about buying a nice single stage press just to learn on. On the other hand I'm thinking about buying a progressive because just knowing me I'll probably wind up with one later anyway. I know some of you guys have both and eventually I'll probably end up with both also but I'm actually leaning towards buying a Hornady Lock and load to learn on. I've watched some online videos and having almost everything I need at one station seems nice. Am I over looking something obvious or should I buy the single stage first.

I would buy the single stage first, but that's just me. What will you be loading?
I think you are going to need a single stage eventually. How much will you be shooting? If you're only shooting 100 rounds per month, I don't know if the extra expense is worht it for the progressive.

I know the Hornady AP Progressive will load .223, but I'm not sure on .308, you'll need to check into that.
