For the "Black rifle" end of things i prefer the ar platform, and i can swap out uppers to fit different calibers, even ak ammunition, but you
prefer ak platform and that is a different thread to argue about.
AK is a fine very workable platform also, just not my first.
As for the shotgun i would say stay away from anything semiauto, pump is the bees knees.
Anything Mossberg i say, i do not prefer Remington for several reasons but there are several aftermarket parts you could add on to make a Remington as
good as a Mossy, so i just save myself the trouble and go mossy first anyway.
Any in the Mossberg 500 series are an excellent choice as they are terribly affordable and just good all around guns.
I shoot trap, skeet with a 20 inch pump.
Now there will be people along to preach of the wonders of semiauto shotguns and their merits, Please just google Mossberg jam, then google whatever
name of said gun and jam.
You will find from many discussion forums of the problems associated with semiautos and you will see the lack of problems with pumps.
Sure they may not be as fast as a semiauto, but i know few people that can accurately fire a shotgun rapidfire with defense loads yet alone target low
Semiautos sure are sexeh though, but you want reliable i assume.
