    FIRST POST/Need advice quick

    Hello all. Cool site ya got here. I am thinking very hard about buying my first AK this weekend at a gunshow here in atlanta. I want entry level (CHEAP cost) but reliable weapon to have fun with and basically have it as a hedge against the zombies kinda gun. I already have my 1911 and my 12ga so this is the next step. I am thinking about a 5.65 (.223) caliber vs the 7.62 just for ammo cost.

    What advice could you guys (and any gals), give me to look for or steer me away from this weekend? Any help very much appreciated.

    Oh no!!! You smell like hometown
    Best 5.56 IMO is a slr106 Arsenal.... AO still had one last time I was up there
    7.62 is gonna be cheaper and the mags more readily available though...
    Shall not be infringed!!!
    Can I make it any Simpler.....

    Go 7.62, ammo is still cheaper then 5.56 and it's the original AK caliber, and darn good too I'd check out a Vector arms AK for Around $500 Or Lancaster, Atlantic Firearms has a good selection of mid priced AK's. http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/prog...ew.asp?CatId=2

    It's mandatory to post the obligatory A-Team picture anytime the mini-14 is mentioned.
    Sorry guys,I don't like it anymore than you do but it's the law.
