First, stop by the intro section so you can get to know us! We're a pretty friendly bunch here, and like to give all our new members a warm welcome.

Second, that's a matter of opinion, and pretty sure to start a good running thread. My opinion, the AK is more fun. But only by a hair, and really only if it's full auto.

Im thinking of an inter ordnance ak47 or spend a little more for an ar 15. But i need to consider keeping the ammo cost down. Any opinions?

Ok, thanks.

You can keep ammo costs down with both by buying surplus ammo. Not too sure on the numbers, but I think they're both pretty cheap on the surplus market.

Now the AR is quite a bit more accurate, but a new shooter may not even be able to notice the difference.

my pick would be ar15. i find ak47s to be unpleasent at best to shoot.

Jon is correct, the AK47 is not real fun, but the AK74 is! Rifles are about the same as a 47 $ wise, but ammo is still dirt cheap. $140.00 per 1080 rounds.

Thanks for video. That was a real good informational piece. I got to look into pricing im hearing the ar is about double the cost of a n ak. I like the american light weightless. I really got to see what my pocket book looks like. Thanks again, Mike
