Hello, first post on this site. I am interested in making an addition to the family with either a cheap ak or a handgun. I keep finding the wasr 10 for about $450-500 but have read mixed reviews all over. At the same price, i am very interested in a handgun in the same range, most likely a Springfield or some caliber. I know these are two completely different fire arms and thats why the site has separate categories but I am undecided. Obviously I am not stuck on one or the other and want to make a purchase soon but want it to be right. Does anyone recommend a semi auto rifle rather than the wasr 10 in the same price range, and if not which one would you recommend? Thanks and sorry for such a long first post.
