If you are going to buy a gun, don't get an assault rifle, get an M1 Garand or a Kar 98.

True, but I hope this doesn't turn into gun control thread.

Of all the guns I have ever fired, .22 are the most fun. You can fire a few thousand rounds a day for less than ten dollars. Also good practice trying to shoot things at long range. You get a feeling for windage and elevation if you ever want to really get into long distances with other firearms.

As for advice, I really can't offer you any. It all depends on what the operator wants to do with it...

Whats the point of owning a gun anyway? I mean any gun under a $1000? Do you know what you could do with that if you didn't get an ugly bit of metal?

Urak'kul, You obviously don't understand.

I bought an AK 47, it kicks ass. Its a great rifle. Really cheap, and cheap ammo. M1 grand is a great rifle. but your pushing an average of 900 bucks. Might want to look at m1a1's. They are like a carbine, but with a full stock. really nice, .30. You can always go for the AR-15, I am assuming its fun to shoot, no kick, somewhat cheap ammo, But for self defense purposes the bullet is a pussy bullet. Those are the guns that I've been looking at lately. With about 1000 bucks to spend, i recommend buying the M1a1. Find a nice one, you can with that money. But if moneys a concern, get a ak 47.
