So, i am looking into purchasing my first AR. I have been thinking about just building my own, but i don't know any thing about AR's. So that is not going to happen..... at least not until i have some experience with them. So, my questions is..... What is a good AR-15 for a first time owner? Ive read about the bushmasters and colts. More negative than positive. but i cant rule them out. Since i have never owned one. I'm looking to my fellow gun lovers for their advice. What do you recommend? i am open to all input since I'm sure that there are a lot of people with a boat load of knowledge of the AR. So help me out. Mainly purchasing it because my wife wants one as well. I gave her the option of an AR or a saiga. she chose AR so i will get my self the saiga. But i still want a good AR that i will be happy with and that she will enjoy shooting, not a ar22. i want the real deal but entry level until i have learned enough about them and feel good enough to build my own. Lets have it.
