Garand is def on my list of guns to pick up, you can get a beat one from old ex out mil stuff for like 300 bux and just refurbish it.

30-06 is expensive to shoot tho, so i might just get an m14 haha, close enough.

The M&P 15 or the 15-22?

I paid about $450 for my 15-22

The M&P 15 (regular AR-15: 5.56mm/.223 cal) Is around $1,200 on average.

I had the opportunity to buy an M1 tanker version 10 years ago that i still kick myself for passing on .

M1 and a folding M1 carbine are on my list ...... along with a FN FAL.

Yep, I've seen them in about every gun store I've been in with the exception of Dick's Sporting Goods. If you live in a state where they are more strict about gun laws, S&W makes a "compliant" version with a pinned butt stock, and a 10 round magazine. They might be more rare to find. The normal one comes standard with a 25rd magazine, but honestly, it's a good idea to pick up at least a 10rd mag in case you want to shoot from a bench or attach a bi-pod.

Those are really nice. I want to go with something with more power though. Also my first "rifle" so I don't want it to be 1K+. Still have ALOT of research to do but here is one I like so far..



You can get it in 9MM, 40 S&W and 45 Caliber.
I would get it as pictured with the forward grip, flashlight and laser. I would also add a red dot scope to it as well.

I like those a lot, but you really have to consider the cost of ammo. $20 will buy you 500+ rounds of .22LR and the same amount of money will get you 50 rounds of 9mm. If I needed to be defensive with a fire arm, hell yes I'd take 9mm over .22lr but if this is just going to be for target shooting, or gopher extermination I would stick with a .22 rifle. Keep in mind the 15-22 is $450-$500, it's the M&P 15 that's $1,200.

If you still want something more powerful, but cheaper than $1,000 take a look at the Ruger Mini-14. They make a lot of different variations of them including tactical. It fires .223 Cal.

Yeah, that's why I was considering the 15-22 because I would practice a bit, but I would also use it for home defense as well. That's what's swaying my decision.

I love my mini 14, not as acurate out the box as a typical AR. If you want it to be accurate though there are things you can do. I have mine down to minium legal lenght including the perminatly attached flash hider. I have a buttler creek folding stock but I took it off in favor of the factory stock ( i prefer a solid butstock for durability and strenght. .223 is easy to find anywhere and the mini14 has similar action to the m14, m1 carbine and the m1 garand

The mini14 will also eat any ammo you feed it and then throw the brass into the next state!

Those high points are cheap and relatively accurate for their cost and cartridges. Would be nice first rifle, p.s. they might use a pistol cartridge, but since its put threw a longer barrel it develops more power.

I bought the first gen in 9mm and and .40 for $175 and $250 the .45 is the newest rendition and i have a super low serial count of 0921 for $275 and it came with muzzle brake and lazer sight. These guns are not the prettiest but they always go bang!
