Have you guys ever thought about it??? Why on earth do we like this little POS???? Some folks say "because it is cheaper than an AR!" Well, my A**!!! The new Stainless models retail for about $700, but you loose you a** finding reliable mags!!!! And sometimes, they don't work!! I spent LARGE $$$ on Thermolds, and they all work. But my PMI's are a toss-up, some work perfect, some I had to buy the Ruger Factory followers from Brownells. Optics are a b**** to install, the barrel looks so bland, and you can't top mount a sling, and they are about as accurate as a piece of *********!! I mean, these guns are REALLY inaccurate!! They just don't hold a group, unless you get them "accurized." A lot of $$$$ when all is said and done!! And in an age where a high quality AK is less than a Mini, and the mags are much cheaper, and easier to find. So I ask again, WHY??? I just look at my Mini's, and there is something I like. Maybe the Garand-style action is in all Outdoor-Loving American's blood, I just don't know. Please tell me why???
