i second the M1A! i had one several years ago, and have regretted ever selling it. they are nice shooters and very accurate as far as semi-auto rifles go. IMO, you would never go wrong with the M1A. plus in 308, ammo is very common.

Well, that sucks. BTW on the Krag comment, what caliber are those things?

For sheer fun and entertainment value, I'd suggest the M1 carbine. I shot one that belonged to a friend a few years ago and it wax bar far the most fun I've ever had. Lightweight and yet Low recoil, ammo plentiful and not very expensive (at least it wasn't at that time), and powerful enough to be impressive on target.
Remember that you choice of targets will have a big effect on how much enjoyment you get out of your guns. It's ALWAYS more fun to shoot an object than it is to punch holes in paper.
