What are you going to be using the rifle for.
Home protection. It would be OK, but a shotty would be better, 30-06 definately not
Plinking, It would be great, cheap, low recoil, lot of aftermerket part 30-30 or 30-06 definately not
Accuracy. Ar15 would also be great. not to the level of a high end bolt action but good enough
Looks, I think the Ar looks alot better than my grandpa's 30-30
I'm not a big fan of AK, they are great functioning guns
I would recommend a AR15. I'm a fan of Bushmaster.
