Im jumping onto this one a little late, but if you are look at a "assault" style rifle, I would urge you to go the way of the AR variants that are
out there and here is why:
-556 NATO round is used by our military and the ammunition is more readily available IN THIS COUNTRY. Both off of the shelf and off of dead bodies if
the SHTF. The AK IS the most widely used weapon world wide, but I dont think you have delusions of world domination
-The AR is a much more accurate firearm in all cases over the AK, but the AK gets a nod for its sheer abilty to perform as far as function is
concerned over the AR IMO.
-Unless you are buying a German made AK, you are truly getting an AK that is subar to the AR. IF you are able to find a German made AK, you can buy an
AR for the same price.
-Most people in this country who own a "assualt" style firearm, own a AR. Considering the parts are interchangable across all manufactures of the
AR, finding parts is not as big of an issue as it in the AK because so many countries mfg the AK and put their own twists on it.
As far as a tactical shotgun goes. Moss 500 or the Rem 870:
I know you can pick up a Rem Tactical 12 (870) for around 380.00 in a lot of gun shops. 7+1 Capacity and the gun is the gold mark in reliabilty when
it comes to pump shotgun.
Just remember this about the 12g. if you are using it, you are in deep #, because its range is about 30yds with the shorty barrel.
hope that helps.
