OhioM4 Posted August 28, 2009 Author Share Posted August 28, 2009 (edited) I'm also on a budget (there's apparently a recession going on). I know it is not ideal but I am strongly considering the Ruger Mini-14 or Mini-30 as my first rifle. I know people complain about the accuracy but for the price I think it would get the job done. I like my Benelli M4 a lot and I think it will cover a wide range of situations. I am leaning towards the 7.62 rifles as shooting through a cinder block is a feature neither the M4 or the 5.56 rifles would be able to equal. I don't care for the AK styling so the Ruger does not seem like a bad choice by comparison. If you ever have to use a rifle in a self defence situation I think the Ruger would look a lot less intimidating to a jury if a criminal or civil suit resulted. What could I get in a similar price range that would be better? Edited August 28, 2009 by OhioM4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
