Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think every thing you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned-FLEXXX.
Translation: I have girly little hands like Adam. I can get a full, four fingered grip on a Spyderco cricket. When I eat a carrot, it looks like I'm holding a baseball bat. I can reach it and touch the bottom of a beer bottle. I can almost...almost palm a tennis ball.
Thinking I might pick up a Mini-14 as well. I know they aren't as accurate as an Ar15 but, having owned several Ar's over the years I'd like to give the mini 14 a try I think. Only thing I don't look forward too is having to get a new mag type.
I had a Mini from 2001 until the end of last year. It was my project gun I bought during the Clinton AWB because $1100 for a neutered AR was out of my price range. I actually sold it to buy G19 #2 because I just wasn’t using it since I had a couple ARs. I say it was a project gun, it had a trigger job, had the barrel cut to 16” and threaded for AR flash hiders. The new Minis have all these features plus better sights and you can buy factory 20 rd mags for about $30. Since they couldn’t be sold to the public during the AWB, factory Mini-14 mags were about $125 each. To this day people still bitch about the Mini being inaccurate and it being hard to find good mags. That was 10 years ago. My Mini shot as well as my 16” ARs.
Yeah if you're looking at a new Mini, Arsenal AKs are damn good AKs in a similar price range.
