I've decided to get an assault rifle and I've been doing some thinking on the subject. I'm considering either a Colt AR-15, AK-74 (maybe 47), or a Ruger Mini-14. My goal is to keep it inexpensive but get the most bang for my buck in accuracy. It seems the AR-15 shoots pretty well stock and the Mini-14 needs a few upgrades to get it shooting decent. I don't know too much about how well the AK-74 shoots stock, but it sounds to be a very reliable gun. If I go with the Ruger or AK, I'll end up spending more on it as the money comes, but the AR-15 is very expensive as is. I'm not going to be using it for competitive shooting, but I'll want to be able to show off every once in a while. What are your guys thoughts?
