Why the hell are these restricted weapons? You can buy a BCL 102 same thing pretty much unrestricted. Why is a non-bolt action AR-15 restricted?

Guessing it's because they look scary.

Because all variants of the AR15 can be modded to shoot full auto. Or at least the law makers believe that to be.

Is this leaps and bounds better than the SW M&P15 SII?

That is not the case. If it can be easily modded to shoot full auto, it'll become prohibited. It happened to the SCAR-L. SCAR was non restricted but because they found out it can be easily converted to full auto, they banned it and put it as prohibited. AR-15s are restricted by name.

So can the unrestricted SKS per a story I saw on CBC about a year ago.

Depends on how small your leap or bound is.

Restricted by name.

This has nothing to do with logic or functionalities of the rifle.
Leave your brain at the door please.
This is a choice made by the legislator.

Also curious on this question.

Can folks with good knowledge provide some analysis on how to figure out which rifle will best meet a users needs? This isn't a gun/hunting forum - I suspect a lot of people would appreciate education on this topic from RFDers who can help others find the best deals in this category.

At the range, you'll be bored after a 100 rounds or so.
Best is to purchase several different types when on sale and bring a few to the range.
I've started to enjoy trap shooting more and at my local range, there's a 5 stand and skeet field that I spend more time at with a simple low cost pump action 12 guage.

Thanks for the input.

I don't mind "bored" - more into reliability and adaptability. I won't always buy a high end -anything- but I prefer to not purchase low end items I won't keep long term.

I like the SKS and ruger 10/22 but this sort of rifle puts me into a different price category where I prefer my first purchase be a good one.

If you maintain your firearms, you will have no issues going through a few hundred rounds each visit to the range.
S&W has a good reputation and I'm actually looking to pick up the M&P 9mm range kit or the 2.0.
You definitely can't go wrong with the M&P 15 Sport II.

It took me almost a year to get my PAL and I used that time to read and research like crazy. I noticed a lot of gun owners end up with 20 guns, 15 of them being impulse buys or cheap-o remnants from the early days of their gun ownership.

I read a lot of threads along the lines of "what gun will you never sell" and used the answers to help me make my first purchases.

I think the best all-round first gun is a QUALITY bolt action .22, with lever action being an acceptable substitute. It's inexpensive compared to equivalent quality in any other caliber, it's inexpensive to shoot, easy to handle, easy to maintain, easy to sell if you should ever decide to.

No matter what kind of shooting you end up doing, you'll always want something that can put inexpensive holes in paper and tin cans. And, as you practice and improve, you'll want a gun that is more accurate than you are, so that results reflect your progress.

In bolt-action, Anschütz is the undisputed king and I think it's fair to call CZ the queen. Savage has respectable offerings too. In lever action, good choices are Henry and Marlins manufactured prior to Marlin's acquisition by Remington.
