Default if you had to chose one

Would u chose an ar15 or an ak47?
I ask because I am going to try to get one this spring and I like how the AK shoots and is reliable so I'm leaning that way. but it takes heat for its accuracy. So which would u chose?

If i had to choose i'd grab the AK, but only because i've got a lot of experience with the platform.

I'm looking into building a nice AR right now so my opinion may very well change lol

AR -because I believe that when society collapses there will be more .223/5.56 round in the US than 7.62x39

Besides, a well built/maintained AR is every bit s relaible as an AK. Unless you don't plan on maintaining the AR, if that is the case go with the AK

Is it just for fun, or do you actually want to hunt something with it?

I would grab the ak because the reliability if I went to war I would grab ak because I don't plan on doing long range shots I plan on bunkering down in the fourth and holding that thing anyways most wars now in days r close quarters and not that much accuracy is needed

A quality AR, it's modular, can always get different calibers can go from 22lr to 50 beauwulf. And everything in between. 204, 5.7, 5.45, 6.5spc, 6.5 Grendel, 458 socom, 9mm, 45acp, long target barrel, short cqb, whatever your hearts desire.

don't live vicariously

I must say it would be a very hard choice between a standard ak 47 and 308 caliber ar

I love my AR, but in a situation where you have to bug out and be reliant on whatever type of ammo you can find, you need a weapon that is built to take the abuse, that is not always the case with the AR. Lots of guys cringe at the idea of shoot steel case through their AR's. For a lot of AR makers, it instantly voids the warranty if you should do so. For that reason, im bugging out with my AK. All i've ever shot through it is Tulaammo, 20 rounds for $5 at your local superstores, .556/.223 costs $8.99 for 20, and .308 for my M1A is $15.00 for 20 rounds. So it is more economically friendly for me to stock up on 7.62x39. Its available almost anywhere that deals with firearms. Accuracy is a trivial thing, the rifle youre shooting to hit something at 1000 yards is not the same as the one youre using to clear rooms with, and as WW2 taught the world, most firefights happen at 100 yards or less. The AK can handle that distance just as well as any AR I've ever seen.

This will be another interesting thread. I'm going to go ahead and say this may be a bad idea to start a thread like this, not that anybody ever gets angry. Y'all keep it civil.
