Some research you just have to do yoursef
1, semiauto Rifle platform choice (AK , AR, 0ther piston type. )
2. Caliber ( light , heavy . NATO or Civilian caliber. )
3. Optics and accesories.
Military vets and LEO types usually go with what they were issued/trained on.
There's really no BAD answer - just buy Brand name rifles - quality ammo - and get some training on your gear.
I recommend reading one of the dedicated rifleboards for awhile.
