Re: I'm a young buyer looking into buying a decent semi-automatic rifle.
That's funny, I'm 21, and when I was looking for my first rifle, my dad wasn't happy with the idea of me getting an SKS or Saiga 7.62... or any semi auto centerfire. Wanted me to learn how to shoot accurately and proper first. So I got a Savage Axis in .223.
Can't go wrong with a .22lr though.
What IS your budget?
