Tell me why I should get an AR over a Mini 30?
Ok, here's the deal: I can't afford either right now, but down the road I think I want a rifle caliber carbine.
I've always like Ruger mini 14's/30's, and though some claim they aren't accurate enough, I can't imagine a circumstance I'd need accuracy any greater than human torso size past 100 yards for a carbine.
I'm not really a fan of .223, and the look of most AR platform guns just isn't sexy at all to me like the Mini's.
So...given that, do I have to jump on the AR wagon, or am I well served with the Mini 30?
Are there any AR's that run 7.62? That may sway me a bit.
