Lessee... so you've picked Human (3), Adept (Magic 4, 1 R2 Active skill).
Looking at your skills, you seem to have stretched yourself pretty thin - your weapon dice pools especially don't seem very high (even more so since you didn't get Attribute Boost (Agility) or any Improved Ability ranks). Since you're allowed to use skill points to add to the skill rank you get from your Adept priority, why not just give yourself Longarms 6 with a specialization in shotguns, and drop your Pistols skill and the Colt? Your shotgun and tomahawk should be enough to keep people from messing with you, and the freed-up nuyen can go towards replacing your Pioneer 60 with a Remington 950.

Update: Yeah, I was trying to make this character do too much. So I dropped the magic ability, added some 'wires and decided that he lost his arm to a gator while making a run in the swamp. With the freed-up priorities helping with resources, he got a boat, truck, dog, & trailer. Can't imagine this guy without the equivalent of a 1911 so I kept the pistol.

Jim has thick limbs, beer gut, greying beard and long gray-streaked hair covered by a beat-up old hat.  He's wearing his wrap around shades and what passes in SR5 as a Realtree jacket. His cyberarm is an older model but stout and reliable.

Jim might seem grim and standoff-ish to strangers, because he is. Once he warms up and is in the mood, he gets a little friendlier.
