For a defensive rifle, one should?
I'm sure this has been asked to death, but I'm just starting my research, and I want a jumping off point.
I need a defensive rifle of some sort. I hate to say "tactical", but what I'm after is some sort of AR varient, or AK. Something with lots of available parts, wide availabilty of "cheap" ammo to stock up on, and aftermarket support to customize my gun to my tastes. This will also be my SHTF gun, so it's needs to be reliable and able to take a beating. I am also left handed (if that matters)
thoughts? I know some of you guys love to spend other peoples money, so tell me what I should have :biggrin2:
