I've seen several Minis on the news too... and they looked to be wielded by official LEO types.

As to the backwards hat thing.. did you notice the scopes on their firearms?

Have you ever knocked your hat crooked when "scoping" a target?

I have.

It may well be that they are wearing them that way to look tough, but it may also be a habit that comes from shooting scoped weapons on a regular basis.

Also..there was a story I read on a news site about a guy sitting on his porch with a generator humming away on the front lawn. A group of about 5 young city punks came up and told him that they wanted his generator...he told them to buzz off--then they threatened to take it away--- He launched a few rounds out of his .357 over their heads and they went away scowling.. ~LOL~

We need more of that type of report to hit the mainstream media.

Well the thing about the "thugs" owning guns and doing all these ILLEGAL things with or without them is, THEY ARE ALREADY BREAKING THE LAW, reguardless if they use a firearm or not. Granted I dont want firearms in the hands of thugs or criminals but they will get them reguardless, they live to break the law so one more "silly gun law" isnt going to stop them. Gun laws and other senseless laws only stop the ones that abide by the law to begin with. If there was a "no guns in civillians hands" law, like the old saying goes "if we outlaw firearms then only outlaws will have firearms".

If they didnt have guns they would use rocks, clubs all sorts of other means "nessisary" to get the job they are trying to accomplish done, period.

I know we all know this, as fact, but the media and other libs just dont understand this concept.

Good day and good to see the Mini in action on the RIGHT side of the law.

Picture from CNN...caption: "A law enforcement officer (from Texas?) holds his weapon (Mini-14) at bay as he waits to go on a search and rescue mission in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2005. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)"

this should take some of the air out of the people who claim that the mini's suck and ar's rule. they cant use the tired old line of "Not even law enforcement use them anymore". clearly they do.

We will never hear good things that firearms accomplished in the wake of Katrina.

One thing I know with all of my heart is that there is no need for any gun control laws. Good people don't need them and bad people won't heed them.

Whats the ruckus on the backwards hat thing???? I'm going down 9/26 or so, elected to take my personal "accurized" Mini 14 instead of the department issued AR15 as it' s lighter and I know it will go off if water logged. On the hat thing, I wear mine as the department would like me to in the open public but on manuevers, getting ready to kick doors in, it goes on backwards. Since most buildings have stairs that go UP, peripheral vision from above is improved, not blocked by the bill of the hat. For some strange reason, (maybe the shape of my head&#33, the down blast from a chopper doesn't seem to blow it off either when it's on backwards. Of course I won't make CNN, don't want to, but if you see a black standard stock, modified with attached AR15 grip, picantinny rails added under the forearm for light and vertical grip attachment, Ultimak handguard, and a BoZo with his hat on SIDEWAYS, (just to get some more stuff started), guess who????

He's a Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Officer hence the state shaped badge. There were tons of those guys deployed during the boat evacuations and rescues.

If I had to guess, this guy was probably guarding the rescue team operations either deploying or recovering the rescue boats.

That's also his green truck in the background, they all drive those.

Shouldn't be surprising... Mini's are really popular with Police and paramilitary in the Caribbean and Central/South America. Heck, the Bermuda Regiment issues them!

I think I saw that in the preview's too..!

I saw this the other Night & it made me think of this "Mini's in Action..."
One of the "Federale's" perhaps(?) has what is likely an "AC-556" "Backin'
Up the COOLEST of COOL Cops..!" Lol..!

Sometimes it seems that I spend an inordinate amount of time looking for folks my Dispatchers say are reportedly 'heavily armed' and on their way to let daylight into whoever is the source of current annoyance.

On those days the little 580 Ranch is a comfort to have along.

I just picked up a 186 series GB from CDNN. The salesman told me their stock was from the New Jersey Department of Corrections. It was in very good shape, but a bit weathered. I'm currently cleaning and restoring the finish on it, and when it's completed, I'll post up some pics.

i have a good friend who was a guest of the state of Indiana before he found god. He knew exactly what my mini was as soon as i took it out of the case. he has personally seen 200 yard shots take down inmates. after a range sesion he said "nice to be on this end of the gun for once"
