I've had a really good experience with this so far, so I'm going to continue to ask questions. What is a good set-up for the bowgun in the beginning of high rank. I am at Nekhot specifically, if it matters, and armor and bowgun would be good. I mainly use pellet and elemental shots, and generally prefer the light bowgun.

I'm gonna be honest here, the very start of High Rank doesn't give you much to work with.
With bugs, Hypnoc, Cephadrome, Gycpceros and sub, Basarios, Khezu and sub, Congalala, Daimyo Hermitaur and Kut-Ku as your only options...
I would honestly recommend you to keep your current Low Rank armors and keep using them for now, as long as the skills they give you are good enough.
The fact that you're at Nekoht and not the Guild is another obstacle, as on of the better all-round full sets at this junction is probably Kut-Ku U. It comes with Element Up and Reckless Abandon+1 (and Health-10) and a staggering 4 OO slots and one OOO, so you can basically gem in whatever you want.
I'm aware that RA does basically nothing for element, but it's a set you can use for any gun. Not the best, but not useless either.
The problem is that it needs Blue Kut-Ku stuff, and you'd need to go to the guild for that.
If you really want something more specialized, you're gonna have to mix stuff and use a bunch of Low Rank armor pieces.
Shinobi Suit (Sun)
Shinobi Kote (Sun)
Shinobi Belt (Sun)
Shinobi Boots (Sun)
2x Element Jewel
5x Armory Jewel
For Element Up, Evade+1 and Bullet Limit. There's a total of 514 options for this set, so pick whichever one you prefer.
For your pellet needs, this might be interesting:
Leather Helm S
Conga Vest U
Conga Guards U
Conga Coat U
Conga Leggings U
3x Fierce Jewel
1x Pellet Jewel
1x Attack Jewel
For Attack Up Small, Pellet S Up and Bullet Limit.
Again, there's 51 combinations for this, so if this isn't to your liking there's 50 more combinations.
Making a half-decent HR Pierce set is pretty much impossible until you get to Shogun Ceanataur.
As for guns and LBGs, as that's your preferred gun (for now at least, HBGs really start to shine in G Rank with Evade Distance).
Assault Conga+ (needs HR Congalala stuff) is a solid Pierce gun with good Normal S support and a bit of Flaming S.
The Peach Parasol (needs a Lost Umbrella and Red Khezu stuff) has a good selection of Pellet S and rapid fires Thunder S as well.
The Green Blade Shower is easy to make (Gendrome stuff) and loads Flame, Water and Thunder S, but doesn't rapid fire anything.
The Hornet Gun is another fairly easy to make gun (Hornetaur stuff) and has a great Normal selection and loads all status shots.
Really, you're in a sort of transferring phase, going from Low to High rank. The majority of the monsters aren't really dropping awesome stuff yet.
I'd recommend getting to High Rank guild hall as well, just so you have better access to some things (for example, there's no Nekoht Volcano gathering quest, that's guild only).
The next level of quests will give you more freedom. Monoblos, Shogun Ceanataur, Blagonga and Garuga for Nekoht, and the Guild adds Los and Ian. Both also allow you to fight a bunch of Elder Dragons, if you've unlocked them.
If you need more clarification, just ask.
