Believe it or not, all this talk of banning weapons has me wanting to go out and buy one just to be defiant, even though I have no idea about the specifics of their use and maintenance. I can learn. So I wanted to ask - what semi-auto rifles may be good for a regular joe like me to look at when considering a purchase? a 9mm seems to be sticking in my mind for some reason. Currently, I own 6 firearms: Two Taurus .38 Special / .357 revolvers Two Henry Lever Actions (a .22 and a .38 Special / .357) Two long rifles (Tikka T3 300WSM and Remington 700 270) I like that my Big Boy Lever Action uses the same ammo as my revolvers. Don't know if these semi-auto "assault rifles" use the same ammo as pistols / revolvers do, but I suppose that would be cool if they do. Anyway, looking forward to your replies. Thank you.
