OK, after days of deliberation and endless lines of suggestions, I think a will go with the... AR-15, my cousin an uncle, both United States Marines had good points, "If you want to shoot at stuff, get the AK, but if you want to shoot at SOMETHING, get the AR." My cousin also said "AK-47, for when you absolutely have to kill everyone in the room... I have no need for that, do you?" LOL, anyway, the AK is still on my gotta have list, just moved it to the back burner for now. Thanks a lot guys, you were a major help. Now if only I could decide between another 1911, an HK USP .45 or a Beretta 92F, thanks again.
