Ok, I'm toying around with the idea of buying an AR. My main reason for considering one is just in case that dang ban comes back around. I have little use for one really, but have always wanted one. Really would just like to have one, because I know the govt doesn't really want us having them. So, what brand or brands, are good, yet cheaper? I can't really afford the $1000 range like I see everywhere. Well, I can.. but I really don't want to spend that. However I suppose I would in order to get one before a ban if it came down to it last moment. I have no experience with these guns, never even held one. So, hopefully someone can point me toward a less expensive, yet still quality weapon.
