9mm pistol & carbine, .22 revolver & rifle, and a long range hunting rifle.

I've got the 9mm and .22 calibers covered. Adding a long range, bolt action, hunting rifle seems like it would put me in a position to forego a Mini-14 altogether. The Mini seems like an unnecessary intermediate between the carbine and the hunting rifle. I'm not interested in building an "arsenal", just covering, literally, a range of practical distances. What would a Mini 14 bring me that the rest lack?

More fire power at and inside 200 yards. Personally, I'd get an AK-74 (probably a #101 variant in 5.56mm) before I'd get a Mini. Oh, wait! I've already done that.

Life is karma. It reflects both past and present circumstance. Our time here is short; so choose carefully and behave well; for, all of your tomorrows are presently being decided.
