Not a lady but I'll give you one answer, they are fun to shoot. Ammo is fairly cheap, recoil is negligible and they are easy to manage. They only have to be as "tactical" as you want it to be.
To the OP I would for your first AR, honestly look at the S&W M&P15 Sport. Great entry level AR, has a warranty and can usually be found under $700.
If you find you dont like it your not out a lot and can pretty much get your money back on it. I dont think you'll be doing that once you shoot one though.
