I would like to add one more EBR before the end of the year. Would that be a wise decision? I am torn between another AR(fixed stock, 20 inch barrel) or another AK rifle. I have more than one AR and the one Hungarian AMD-63. Suggestions would be welcome. I have seen the AMD with the folding stock. Any AK suggestions are welcome as well. I am concerned about the possibility of an import ban when it comes to parts and ammunition. Is this a valid concern?

If your main concern is to have an other EBR before an import ban of parts and ammo, I would get another one of the same thing. Same parts and ammo reduces the need for spare parts. Ammo diversity isn't always the best thing if you are trying to stock up.

If you already have more than one AR, I'd buy another AK so you'll have a spare.
That said, if it was me, I'd probably focus on mags, spare parts, ammo, and training.

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

KenpoTex, I pondered your suggestion and believe you have purposed a wiser course of action in getting ammo, parts, and training for the firearms I currently own Rather than adding another rifle at this present time. Anybody know of handgun/ rifle courses that are in the Kentucky area that would benefit the development of my skills with said weapons?

Just north of the border in Ohio is a place called TDI. I have not taken any of their carbine classes but they are considered top notch.
