First off Id like to say Im totally new to guns. Ive shot before, but never owned.

I am turning 18 soon, and I would like a rifle. A semi-auto to be exact.

I was really wanting a tactical Mini-14 because it looks somewhat similar to the M14(my favorite gun) and it is an overall good gun.


But at the same time I kinda want a AR-15.

But theres so many AR-15s to choose from.




Help me decide!

I only want to spend at most $1000 on the gun itself.

thoughts on first owned rifle

Do give some thought to ammo costs -- .22LR is about $.05 per shot while .223 is maybe $.30 -- so you get 6X as much shooting with a .22LR -- if you are thinking about high volume range shooting with a semi-automatic you might have more fun with a Ruger 10/22 -- maybe put a low-power scope on it. You can have fun at 50 yards and some challenges at 100 yards.
