Thank you for all the responses, I really appreciate it. I am definitely going to get age verified as soon as I can. I need to contact the guy in Kingston or Smiths Falls, as they're the only decently close verifiers in my area.
AK's I find are one of my least favorite rifles, as the room to add accessories is slim. From what I've seen, you can only really add a scope which makes it look like a monstrosity(In my opinion). I agree that the M4/M16 are widely over used guns. That said, I believe the RIS allows for maximum customizations. I was thinking about the G36 because it has room for some accessories, as well as being able to use it as an assault rifle, and partially an smg due to the folding stock. Are the CA models, and ARES models practically the same? Or is one better than the other?
