The semi-auto rifle may not be the best weapon for home defense, but it may be the best for defending your land and property. If you live in Arizona or Texas along the Mexican border, you know what I am talking about. With a good semi-auto rifle, you will be armed as well as the best foot soldier. The semiauto rifle is good at keeping gangs and villans at a distance a shotgun or pistol can't reach.
The only drawback to a semi-auto assault rifle is they are expensive. set the price limit at $750. Choose your caliber wisely. Use only easy to find and inexpensive ammunition. Use only HP or SP bullets. If you buy FMJ military ammo, use it for practice only.
