    Mini 14

    My local Walmart just got in some Mini 14s. $627.00 and that includes scope rings. I had one years ago and loved it. I wonder if the wife will lift the "gun purchase" restriction.

    I had one years ago too and was not impressed with its accuracy... Are the new ones any better?

    I am not sure, I think so. I know they have made some improvements, not sure what. I had a Colt AR that was accurate, I just don't care for the platform. Wife love the AR but we were living in CA then and they became more valuable to others than to me. CA would not allow more ARs to be bought into the state. Used ones went crazy.

    Yes, they are now "guaranteed" to hit the side of a barn.

    I enjoy mine, can't vouch for the accuracy but it is a fun gun to shoot-not AR fun but still fun.
