    I've got a Bushmaster that I'm happy with. I've also heard good things about Colts.

    GuiltySpark, yeah.

    Southpaw, what model Bushmaster? They look nice.

    SFGOON, for what reasons would you recommend the AK-74?

    Teddy, they look alright, I'll have to look into those too.

    Nobody's ever brought it up before. I've never used one myself, but would guess that they combine the best of both the AR-15 and the AK-47 with the exception of range and stopping power.

    I fired an AR-15 last week and it was great.

    However, for self-defence I would have to say Glock 21. Leave it loaded with .45ACP and tucked away (assuming you don't have kids) and there's no need to worry about a safety to release in times of excitement.

    Hm, Colt, Armalite, Bushmaster. Man, I'm not sure who to buy from or what features to get. I don't really want anything too extravagant, especially because I have really limited experience. For starters, what barrel length should I get? I am well aware of the benefits of a shorter, carbine barrel, but are sub-1 MOA groups possible with that?

    Here's another vote for the AR-15 platform.

    Colt rifles are nice, but I actually prefer Bushmaster's offerings. The reason being, is that I've had much better customer service from Bushmaster than Colt.

    Right now, I have their no-frills XM15-E2S 16" carbine (A2 top), and it shoots great with Winchester 55 grain FMJ ammo (fragments in soft tissue). 800-1000 gets you a very nice Bushmaster rifle, and my next purchase will be a Bushmaster M4 (carbine, folding stock, 14.5" barrel + 2" permanently welded muzzle brake).

    Magazines have always been plentiful, as I was still able to buy USGI 20 and 30 rounders for 20 bucks each (tops), despite the stupid Assault Weapons Ban back then.

    The AR-15 platform is not too complex. Anyone who reads the manual should be able to do a thorough dissassembly-reassembly in a reasonable time.

    I strongly urge you to get Kuleck and McKee's books regarding the AR15 platform.

    http://www.fulton-armory.com/

    Excellent detail, and it will teach you everything you need to know about the tried and true AR15.

    They also make exceptionally nife rifles, by the way...

    You may also want to consider a Ruger MINI-14...You can get them in the same caliber as an AR-15, .223 or 5.56 NATO as they are commonly referred to. Back in the day you could buy them at Wal-Mart for around $550-$600...They are also known as "Ranch Rifles" for the pesky vermin that a rancher may encounter. You can also accessorize a MINI-14 with different stocks, barrels and clips.

    Good Luck in your search !!!
