Okay my fellow forum friends. Its finally time for me to buy a rifle. Should I just buy an AK47 or build an AR15? What's going to be the best bang for buck with reliability and firepower. Which would you guys choose. I love how ak's look but I love the customizability of an AR. And if I do build an ar what would be the very first part to buy? Its gonna take me a while to build it as I only have around 100.00 every two weeks to spend on it. Thanks guys. I need as many people as I could get to answer and help me with this. Oh yeah. Money IS an issue. And I shoot rifles left handed and pistols right handed. I can't for the life of me shoot a rifle right handed.
