I decided by looking into what would suit / fit me best, factoring in if I wanted all sorts of doo-dads hanging off of it or what not then lurking the classifieds until something along the lines I wanted popped up for cheap. And I mean CHEAP...every couple of days someone will post an AEG for sale that's honestly a steal...provided you have the cash on hand.

I think I'm scared if I go M14 I'll be tempted to try to turn it into a sniper rifle off the bat which wouldn't be a good thing to start with...
decisions, decisions, decisions....
how the hell did you all decide on your first AEG?? It is hard as hell.
