Im looking to compleat my "toolbox" with a long range rifle. I'm considering the mini 14 ranch rifle or a Windham AR15. I would appreaciate your input. Primary purpose other than FUN is for a SHTF senario. I could not see useing this for general home defense unless society breaks down which I am worried about.
I'm leaning toward the Mini 14 as it seams to be a more rugged rifle with less parts to loose or get broke. I will keep either option simple and only add optics. Either one of these rifles would shoot better than me for a while untill I get some training/experiance under my belt.
What are the pros/cons of each in your opinion? Thanks for your time.
