I have a bushmaster AR15. They are good. Colt makes a good one also , but they usually cost a bit more. DPMS panther I hear are good. Century Arms and Olympic Arms make a cheaper one and I have heard mixed reviews on them. I AM NOT AN AR15 EXPERT, just what I have read and heard.

I am not much of a brass chucker guy. I like to use pin point shooting, not just throw a hell of a bunch of rounds and hope to hit something... so not much help here good luck... beside it is like a child it has to be fed and eats alot.....

Colt is top of the line, Most of the others are good.

Tactical Shotguns, Mossburg 590 Mil Spec for a Pump or Banelli for a Semi Auto. + some other vendors Police spec Guns are nice too.

on the tactical shotguns I know that remington makes a conversion for the 870 and I think mossberg makes on for the 500A, I know there are a bunch of others out there but you will have to do some looking to see if they are in your price Range...

Remington owns Bushmaster now, and they are making a model called SP-15 I believe as well as a SP-25 which chambers the .308 family of cartridges. Rem 870 is hard to beat for a shotgun too.:)

7.62X39mm is another consideration...Ruger Mini-30? Pretty good gun...lots of "Bolt-On" mods...ammo is readily available, inexpensive. Not to mention quite a bit larger cartrige than a .223. That is, unless you just have your heart set on an AR.:cool:

If you want to hit something that you are aiming at past 50yds, don't do the Ruger. The one thing they are famous for is inaccuracy.:rolleyes:

An AR-15 can be set up to shoot well at long distances, I've shot several scores in the 190's (out of 200) and scores like that are very common. My group used Bushmaster receivers and Krieger Barrels in service style rifles. The rumor was that a bushmaster had better tolerances and fit to the upper better. We used moly coated bullets 69 grain at 200 and 300, and 75 grain A-max at 600. As far as tactical shotguns, I've used an 870 converted to tactical and it was nice.

the mini-14 is a .223 cal rifle and has questionable accuracy. They do have some fun add-ons though.

Mini-14=.223, Mini 30= 7.62X39 and is quite a stopper at close range.:)
