Where Do I Start? .223
I'm not new to firearms (handguns, shotguns and rifles), but I would like to pick-up an AR15 style rifle in the near future. I believe that I've decided to go with .223 caliber. Where should I go from here? I have not shot any and have not really started the search. I'm trying to figure out what I should be looking for? Since this would be my first AR style, I would prefer to keep the price fairly low. $700 - $800? Not sure if that's even doable for a quality AR style rifle. This would be used primairly for range use and target practice. I can't imagine needing anything like this for home defense - have an 870 for that. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
