I'm looking into a SUR(sport utility rifle). I was thinking about an AR-15. Then I saw that AK's could be fixed up nicely and rounds are cheaper, so I started thinking about an AK. Then an SKS came up, well, I think they are clunky and crappy and I don't want an SKS,so there. I did the old decision making process over the last three days and talked with several people about what they thought. After weighing out the pros and cons I finally concluded that I need to just get what I want and I want an AR. Sure, I could get a cheap AK and go out and have loads of fun, but the AR would still be in my brain and I would end up selling it and getting what I wanted to begin with anyway, AFTER wasting loads of money and time. I've settled on the AR, glad I thought this through.
