    I am an avid hunter and spend some time at the range. I want an assault rifle mainly because I believe eventually they will not let us buy them any more. I want to be able to use the gun possibly to hunt with. I am thinking of the FN FAL. .308 right? I have been kinda looking at AR`s also.

    There alot of choices out there and I would like some advise.
    So if I go AR which one do I go with. I have seen a Bushmaster for $699 at the local store.

    Give me your thoughts..

    FAL would be my choice. Good solid gun regardless what model you go with. Parts kits and receivers are cheap, so for very little money you could build your own or have someone else do it. Very easy to work on. One of the finest rifles ever made in the world. Plus I think if your a hunter .223 may not help you to much, unless you went with a .308 AR-10.

    Don't get an "assault rifle". We call them "sporting rifles". Unless they were made before 94'

    I wouldn't get a .223 rifle if you plan on hunting any medium to large game, such a deer.

    I have a 22-250 and I hunt deer with it. I also have and hunted deer with a .223. Its not really the caliber I need to choose.

    I want opinions on guns. I am looking into the AR-10 now.

    Who`s AR-10 would you buy

    an assault rifle? are you 21? because that's how old you have to be to buy machine guns. have a few thousand laying around? because that's how rich you have to be to buy machine guns. have a few months to wait? because that's how long it takes for the feds to do a background check so deep, your anus will hurt.

    christ, that's overpriced. you can get an AR10A2 for just under a grand. i would think that the finish wouldn't cost that much extra, but hell, it might. it's a waste, though, if it does.

    I meet all the above criteria. I dont want a full auto. Just a semi. I can go to any gun show around here and pick up a AK.


    For people in the loop...... I shoot left handed is this going to suck for me?

    Well a assault rifle has to have select fire to be considered one. A ar15 and ar10 are not assault rifles.

    I don't know about AK's but most newer AR's have brass deflectors so lefties can shoot em.

    AK's and AR's are no issue with lefties. i'm a lefty. you just adapt your hands to control fire controls like mag releases and bolt catches that were designed for righties, and you can get a lot of ambidextrous parts, like saftey selectors and mag releases for AR's.

    i was giving you a hard time about "assault rifles", since technically, it has to be capable of some sort of full-auto fire to be considered one. your definition of "assault rifle" is the same as the anti-firearm crowd. don't use it.

    I want to buy an assault rifle when I turn 21, how bad is the background check they do? Is this for fully autos only? Do you need to be 21 to buy a non fully auto ak or ar?

    I hunt with my SAR-1. The 7.62x39 is suppose to be ballistically similar to a 30-30 Winchester. Great for deer and the gun is great to be hiking around in the mountains with. I don't even notice it strapped to my back especially when you compare it to your typical 10lb or more hunting rifle.

    there IS such a thing as a select fire AR-15, you know.... and not just conversions. There are factory, AR-15 marked select fire rifles.
