I've grown fond of internal magazines in general.

I know a SWAT agent, super-sniper, or champion shooter

may get a benefit from all this AR-rail-accessory jazz gizmo

crap, but I prefer something with a low profile which isn't

going to get snagged on a lot of things.

Try actually taking some dolled up accessorized 40 round clip

rifle through rough terrain sometime, you'll see what I mean.

As the saying goes, sometimes less is more...

that's why I've always loved a good mini-14 with a 20 rd mag and open sights. you can get in and out of alot of tight spots (and cars) with that.

Hi, I’m new to this too, but I gotta ask, ‘Security out to 300 yards’? THREE football fields away?

Yeah, I agree. I think a lotta guys would find that optimistically short.

I don't know,most of the stuff I shoot can be relegated

to the "relic" category, (it's older than I am) so maybe I'm

just a crappy advisor, in this case.

But I'm going to step out on a limb here, and say a Mosin

M44 would make a very reasonable guide gun, at a

ridiculously low price, even in this day and age...

As a new shooter i would reccommend you get some trigger time on the range with a firearmes instructor. Many reasons for this but the biggest is safety and experience. As far as a so called assualt rifle is concerned any rifle that fires a bullet can be labeled as such. One of the early responses was a lever action rifle. This is a great idea! 30-30 caliber is also a great choice. And the most important after buying your rifle is to practice, practice, and more practice. You never know but this experience could lead you down another road that is totally enjoyiable, reloading your own rounds...

Have fun, shoot straght, and good old tin cans are great targets. Not the common coke can, but the real tin cans that most canned foods come in. With a .22 you can shoot all day for $20.00 and its just plain fun.

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but my daughter picked up a Kel Tec Sub 2000 9mm folding carbine. It also comes in .40 SW. I think and can be ordered to take SW, Sig, Beretta, or Glock mags. I think she gave 300 bucks for it +/- It is definitely fun to shoot. Would make a good close quarter defense gun I think.
