    New "family" member added

    I added a new family member today.. and from the history of this site I may be flamed for doing so, but I bought a Mini-14.. Have wanted one for a while.. and figured it was now or never.. most places here in town were sold out of all AR type guns, there is a 6 month wait on anything, one place had mini's, and their price was good for a composite stock 580 model.. I made my final decision after reading this article:

    http://www.ar15.com/content/swat/200...vs_Mini-14.pdf

    By posting this link I am NOT trying to start a AR / Mini debate... I am just letting you know what went into my decision making process...

    Here is a pic.. the top is a Ruger Deerfield Carbine .44 mag, Benelli Nova 12ga, Mini-14, Sig P239 .40...

    Hey! Good for you. It's yours and it's paid for right? What more would you have to say? Good luck with it. Did you get some ammo?
