    I'm trying to figure out what kind of semi-auto AR type rifle to buy and my head is spinning! Help.

    Is there a "rookie's guide" to buying a first AR?

    My head is hurting from all the options and brands.

    Welcome. There's a ton of threads here talking about different ARs. I'll say the first things you need to do is figure out what you're budget is and what you want. Obviously, if you spend more money you can get something nicer. Then figure out if you're building one or not. You'll find a lot of people here like the Del-Ton models for their value (good quality for the price).

    Here's a couple of decent posts: I have a $1000 for an AR. Now What?

    Read through the rifle discussions, there's a lot of banter about ARs.
