If you had a choice to buy pistol or long gun

I’m aware of the issues of shooting .22 in an AR, but I don’t want a dedicated upper and I can fix or replace anything that fails. Yes, .22LR is dirty but I’ve seen no performance degradation, and firing some .223 pretty much cleans it out - I’ve swabbed the gas tube afterwards and it’s no dirtier than after firing only .223 or 5.56 and neither is the receiver. I’m not too concerned.
