This one is a little over your $1000 mark but comes with some really nice goodies already attached and is a very high quality firearm for a good price.

Congrats and it sound like you are starting out right. Listen to the guys on the forum, the are very, very knowledgable. I have an advantage that I am somewhat ( ) familar with firearms, but not in all the platforms that DZ likes. Just listen to your guy and pick up on the little things that he says. There probably won't be any gun shows between now, and when you get married, but there are plenty of resources in the Houston area, and even though they are "looking to make the sale", a gun store that doesn't feel "slimey" or condencending to you will be a load of help too. Not everyone is just out there to make a buck. A good, mid-range Ar will give him lots of room to customize and make it jus the way that he wants. You don't have to go with the most expensive, but don't go with the cheapest either. Your price range should be just about right. As for the .22 conversion, it can always be added later. I would go with the .556/.223 platform it is very customizable. If you have any other questions, please feel free to PM me.

Integrity is doing good even when no-one is looking

Just call around and see what they have in stock and at what price. You may find an AR for $1,000. Prices are coming down and availability is increasing.
Top Gun, just off of Westheimer in southwest Houston, is awesome. It's where I got my CHL and I've purchased many a handgun there. They have LOTS of ARs, too. Good bunch of guys.

Default Ar 15

OK--here we go-----if you want to know what goes on in the AR15 arena, go to when you do that be prepared to become totally confused. There is so much information on these weapons that the experts can get confused.
Would suggest that you pick a basic 20" flat top with sights from the better known mfgers, RRA, Bushmaster, Stag, Armalite, Lewis Machine, DPMS--these all have web sites--then go to one of your local dealers to purchase and make sure your new spouse will be able to bring it back and trade, if need be, into exactly what he wants with no penalty. That way all be be happy. You should plan to spend somewhere just under $1000 for this type rifle. If they want more than that go to another shop!! Todays market is quit full of AR 15's and you should be able to get a good deal on one! If I can be of further help e-mail me at your convenience!! GOOD LUCK and CONGRATULATIONS in advance!!
