If you like accuracy, and a smaller round go for a .17hmr rifle with a bull barrel. I have one that I put 5 rounds inside a dime at 150 yards. For looks and further down range fun, the AR-15 is a great gun to own. My advice is to do your own research and go with what will make you happy. FYI... I love my .17 so much I wouldn't sell it for 10x what I paid for it.

I'm leaning toward AK for durability (is this really the case or is the AR-15 just as durable?), but I'm a bit mystified with all the variants, is there an especially good AK for under $1000?

I am not a hunter, I have always enjoyed target shooting. I was a boy scout and had a blast earning my rifle shooting merit badge back and the day and was quite good at it. My parents always hated guns, so I never really got into it. I watched a marathon of Top Shot the other day and its got me itching to get back into it. I bought an air soft pistol a while back and its a little bit fun to shoot with it, but as you probably know they are terribly inaccurate at any sort of long range. I live less than a mile from a shooting range and I think it would be fun to go over there and hone my skills a bit. The dilemma is I am totally new to real firearms. I dont want to spend an outrageous amount of money but I would like a nice, accurate rifle for target shooting. I know nothing about what is on the market and what is good. All I really know comes from video games. The gun that I really love is the Dragunov SVD. I just think it is badass looking gun, and has appeared in a lot of games as a good sniper type rifle. They aren't exactly cheap, but I would splurge for one, if the performance matched it looks,
I am a custom car guy, and by that I mean, I almost prefer looks to performance, but I am aware that in firearms, those could be two separate things. Id like to have something that performs well, but still has a sexy look to it. Any body have any advice? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Plus themagazines interchange with the Marlin 17 mag...I took a belt pack and put in 8 magazines,2 boxes each of 22 mag and 17 mag and placed it nect to both my Marlins....no matter which one I grab,I have ammo and mags with me...

i have a marlin with a composite stock/stainless barrel and 3x9 scope.
it is chambered for 22 wmr and is deadly accurate and powerful.
a well placed shot will kill a deer in 1 shot.
i can hit a golf ball at 70 yards 6 out of 7 rounds.
it's nice because it has detachble magazines and the gun is light and so is the ammo so you can carry alot
