Hello All,

Fairly new member here and from the Central Valley. I am also new to firearms and was looking to purchase an AR15 for home protection, but their price has gone through the roof, so now I am looking for an affordable alternative to the AR15. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Bob

AK's are cheaper, but if you just want home protection, I'd get a cheap 9mm. A lot of people recommend shotguns, but they are a little more unwieldly than pistols and can get hung up in doorways and stuff. I prefer a pistol.

Welcome to the board.

Second the suggestion for a shotgun or a handgun. An AR presents too much of a possibility of overpenetration should you need to use it in close quarters.

Oh, and welcome to Calguns!
