I don't normally post or really ever read much in this section. But I have been thinking about buying an AR for the past couple weeks but with last nights debate, I'm really thinking about it. I have other guns on my list that I want more but I don't want to be on the outside looking in. If I do buy one I don't anticipate shooting it much. I am more of a bolt action/shotgun type of person. Would you go lower end if you were buying or go medium/high end incase pieces and accessories aren't available in the future? I have a S&W M&P 15-22 so I am a bit familiar with the platform. I've just never gone for the fullsize because I probably wouldn't want to pay for the ammo and being in Illinois I can't hunt deer with it. I could take it for coyote/fox hunting but I generally do that with one of my bolt guns. The budget could be $1500 and stretched to $1800 at the extreme high end. Whatever I do spend will cost me the ability to buy other guns on my list. Which end should I go for and any recommendations or ones to avoid would be much appreciated.
