Purchasing new AR & Shotgun
I'm in the market for purchasing 2 long guns. I'm in no hurrry but I'd like to complete my purchases prior to the elections (you never know what may happen next year).
I would like a decent quality AR (not the best but also not the worst) something that can be upgraded with various attachments. Also, not sure what brands to look at (or stay away from - or what caliber to consider). Ammo costs and availability are a consideration (223, 5.56, 7.62 or .308).
Also, want to get a decent quality 12 guage pumb shotgun for home defense and/or trunk carry. This too, not the best or not the worst.
Thanks for any recommendations on brands, models, calibers and approximate costs.
