Ok, so, my hubby just got an AR, and he wants me to get one too. I've shot a few of them, and think that they're great guns. He wants me to get one because he says it's a good gun for survival, and hunting, which is fine, but I know a lot of people who have them, and he's getting one. Sooo, I want something different, something light enough for me to carry around, hunt with (I haven't actually gone hunting, but I would like to at least once), just an all around good rifle. Doesn't have to be fancy or all tactical, I'm more intrested in practicality, where as my husband is a touch more concered about aesthetics (in my opinion). So, instead of an AR, what would you guys suggest, and why? Btw, I may be a small girl, but I've shot a 12ga remington, which my friends said had more kick than any other 12ga they've shot, and I managed ok. So I don't mind recoil, as long as it isn't too crazy, I want to be able to shoot for awile without my arm falling off! Lol. To be honest, I was kinda thinking about a mosin nagant, I like the sounds of them, and I like the history. But I also like to research thoroughly before I make any kind of decision. And I know next to nothing about rifles.
