    What would you fellas recommend? I am thinking AK.
    Main uses for this gun would be sitting in a closet or safe "just in case" and the occasional range day.
    BTW please be specific (i.e. if AK what kind? Romanian, Polish...etc.)

    If shit truly hits the fan, I'd go with an AR because .223/5.56 is much more prevalent in the US than 7.62x39.

  6. Me too.

    The AK or AR are the obvious choices. I'd pick whichever one you figure you'll have an easier time getting ammo for in a given situation. Then, take some training classes with the rifle. Training is vital, especially if you plan to defend yourself with it.

    I'd probably run my AR just because I have an optic and light for it.

  16. Whatever you choose, I can't stress enough how important it is to train with it. Having a rifle alone is nothing.
