Thinking of buying a gun :bond:
« on: December 11, 2015, 11:18:31 am »
So I'm looking into getting a gun to shot at stuff at the range in town. Obviously an AK variant would be fun, but they are surprisingly expensive at around $700 from what i can find. M4's are around the same price. And i actually am looking at getting a Deagle, but damn $1700 for a new one seems a bit pricey...though not totally out of the question.

Anyone got an suggestions on a fun and reasonably priced gun that a civilian can own?

In some places in the world, you can get an AK for ten dollars.

Use the money you'd save buying an AK from Somalia into a plane ticket and some rations.

Also I feel like you live in a state where Walmart would sell AR-15s, so honestly, you might want to check there because they will be on sale this time of the year. I'm completely serious with this post. I'm positive more AR-15s have been sold from WalMart this Black Friday than ever before.

Well, I mean, you started this topic with intentions of getting an AK. If you want an AK, pursue an AK. If you just want a big gun to shoot at stuff with, get the AR-15 at a Walmart and make sure you get the receipt. But, even then, still get the AK.

I think you'll have more fun with an AK, personally. You'll get to know it better than the AR-15, especially in terms of maintenance.

But, I've never shot an AR-15, but I've played with several AKs.

AKM is a modern build. This one is made in the USA. Which I've heard would possibly make it incompatible with certain accessories, but I don't believe that honestly. It doesn't make sense. Besides the obvious accessories.

Okay, I talked to my really experienced gun buddy. He says buy an American-made AK. Due to a couple laws, foreign AKs are supposed to have a certain amount of American-made parts before they can be imported, so buying an American-made AK is actually a safer bet.

He also heavily recommends the IO company I linked. He says do NOT buy anything from Century Arms no matter how much you save. They are crap.

That actually isn't a bad price at all for the US AK. I have never fired an AK before, just an M4 and a glock. I would definitely want to try out a deagle before i paid 2grand for one and it ended up being a bit to much for me. But then i realize how 2grand for a pistol is just nuts.

a Desert Eagle is really a 2 handed pistol for 95%+ due to the massive recoil.

.223 stuff like AR-15s is pretty common, so you aren't really going to get much cheaper then that.  AK also very common, so it's in that same price range.

If you just want to shoot stuff at a range, and have a tight budget, you can always go for .22 LR.  Ruger makes some very nice ones that you can get for under $300.  And the ammo is cheap enough you can get the gun and your first 1000 rounds for the same cost as the AK or AR.

Of course the con is it's just a 22LR.

You can get an AK chambered in 5.56, though at the moment I'm not sure it's cheaper ammo than 7.62 since 7.62 isn't commonly used by the military any longer.

They seem to be priced fairly close together. And i like bigger bangs, so im not sure what the benefit would be? Its just a smaller round right?
