Hello all, I've got almost no experience with guns. I'll start taking some classes next week, and learning all I can. One thing I've learned is I would love to own a Bushmaster ACR, seems like one of the best for all around performance, reliability, and firing full of water or dirt. And with their construction materials, seems like they'd last forever with little maintenance. I next plan on purchasing a semi-auto shotgun and a semi-auto handgun. But I'm still researching those. Primary considerations are again, reliable (will shoot under any conditions) and very low maintenance, like with some of the lubricant free models with Melenite surfacing. Any and all helpful comments and advice are always appreciated. Suggestions on what types of guns I should get are also welcome.
