SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I've decided to take advantage of the loose gun laws in my state and buy my first gun. I've gone shooting a few times mostly shot 9mm and last time I shot a .357 revolver sig and 9mm sig. I wouldn't mind getting something that will retain it's value maybe a limited edition gun if those exist, so i can have it for fun and as an investment. My budget is pretty liberal I think, at $1,000. And I eventually would love to buy an AK74U, I just think it's a cool rifle. So what do you guys recommend?
