I've enjoyed this site for quite a while and am now thinking of actually buying a gun. I don't need anything fancy. Is AR15 a good brand? I'm trying to keep the cost under $200 (including the box of ammo I'll need). Thanks for any recommendations. Tate

AR15 isn't a brand, it's a type of rifle. $200 isnt nearly enough to buy any decent rifle. However, you might be able to get an SKS for about $150 and up. However, I suggest you spend some time (and money) reading about how rifles work overall and maybe even get some training. In the long run spending money on training will be the best firearm investment you will ever make. Sgtar15

Tate, AR15 is indeed a "good brand." It is a large multi-national corporation that makes chocolate chip cookies and underwear as well as rifles. If you are interested, I have a coupon for AR15 brand rifles. It's for a rifle and three pair of underwear for just $150.00!!!! AR15 Brand rifles, the tighty whities of the firearms industry.

If you're looking for a first gun, you probably shouldn't buy a handgun. And for under $200, forget any AR15 (it's not even a "brand" anyway). Maybe you should try a good pump-action shotgun to start with. Good quality in your price range can be found everywhere. If your looking for personal protection, try here: [url=http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/POWERPUFF/][b]http: //www.remington.com/default[/b][/url]. They should be able to help you. Good luck.

ThunderStick - I'll give you $25 for that coupon. I'll still be $25 ahead of my goal. I will have to buy a box of ammo, though. Do they sell individual bullets? I might not need to buy a whole box of them at once. SGB wins the contest! [:D] Tate

Joke? Has to be. Otherwise get yourself an SKS.

AR15s (registered trademark of Colt) are expensive if you can find them as they are now collectors items and cost accordingly. You can still find Colt Sporters. Bushmaster sells XM15's which seems to be the preference to everyone nowdays. Olympic's line of PCR and OCR rifles are on the ok side. I believe that Eagle makes the EA 15's, but I am not familiar with the other manufacturers name designations.

Consider a used .22 pumpaction rifle. got one for 125 or so i think, dont really remeber the price. plus got a .22 scope for it(that means cheap [;)] ) .22 ammo is nickle and dime stuff. shoot all day on $20. good AR's cost 700+ --- i think i have been suckered.. he has 600+ posts. ohwell..

What's really funny is that even after Tate admitted this was a joke, people are still posting serious responses.

I think you can get a Hesse for about two bills, but they're not worth it!

Tate, If you want to spend a little less money, there are different brands you can get. As already mentioned, SKS's(TM) are the cheapest. If you have a little more money, you can get a post-ban AK-47(TM). Personally, I prefer the AR-15(TM). Maybe you should be asking the question "What's better, 5.56 or 7.62?" The AR-15 brand semi-automatic machine sniper rifle usually shoots the 5.56, while the SKS and AK-47 brand close-quarters combat long-range fully automatic semi-auto rifles usually shoot the 7.62 bullet. The AR-15 and AK-47 brands use clips, while the SKS(TM) can use either a clip or a magazine. I hope this helps. Good luck with your purchase.
