  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Let me start by saying that I know that I'm about to incite a flame war, but I'm not trying to. I'm not trying to ruffle feathers, I'm looking for honest answers. Here we go: Why is it that when someone asks about pistol grip stocks, quad rails, or other such "tacticool" items, someone always...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I see often here that the mini-14 is not considered or used as a battle weapon. I question that assumption since any weapon can be used as a "battle" weapon. Maybe someone could enlighten me on why a Mini-14 is not considered a "battle weapon" as opposed to an AR or a M14 type. I understand the...

    I don't have a lot of money but I want to get a rifle for SHTF, HD and plinking before an AWB becomes law. I cannot afford a high end AR so my options are limited. I really like the Mini-14. I know of it shortcomings with accuracy but the gun ranges in my area are maxed at 100 yards, so I'm...
  4. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    You know, after shooting an M16/AR15 for nearly 10 years, and was very happy with it's accuracy, I must say that the Mini 14 is just as accurate and don't know all the fuss about everyone wanting to get AR's. For the money, there is no better shooting .223 that I know of, and if you're lucky...
  5. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I have been wanting a rifle that could be a true SHTF rifle, and as usual that has led me to comparing the mini-14 rifle to some of the AR style offerings. I need to keep my expenditures under $1,000. (I will be adding optics later, so the $1,000 is for the rifle, extra magazines, and some...
  6. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Same round - why is the AR (I think is over rated and easily jammed) so popular. The make of the Mini 14 seems easily maintained and simple to me. I know it is smaller and easier to handle to me? Just curious what you professionals think makes the AR so popular versus our Mini 14. I was just...

    I have read discussions like this for years. Now that I am a member I'm starting this one to try and objectively resolve this matter. Please no bashing lets just deal with the facts. I like both weapons, and have extensively shot then both. I personally favor the Mini 14. Let's try and stick to...
