Absolutely an AR15. Don't buy junk. There is tons of information on buying your first AR if you search for it. If you are handy, build your own AR15 with quality parts, you will know and understand your rifle better if you built it! Good luck.
"ease of acquiring and cost of ammunition" You're a little late for that one!
I’ve started looking into buying a rifle and would appreciate others’ opinions on what to look for when picking one. I am currently using the following criteria:
- primary use is home defense
- secondary use is range training (I’m in Sussex county, considering rtsponline.com as training facility)
- ease of acquiring and cost of ammunition
The first thing that popped up for me was AR 15 (and variants), since I’d imagine that is a very common rifle. Are there additional details I should be considering when picking a rifle? All comments and suggestions will be much appreciated.
