just a curiosity thread.

no need to answer if you think "they" are watching.....:p

how many mini guns do y'all own? if/when you got another, which mini would it be?

i'll start....i only own one mini :(....a stainless ranch you have seen many pictures of :p....i love it, but i have gotten it looking and shooting pretty much how i want....so, all that is left is shooting it!

i can't justify another mini in my small "collection." just too many holes in my gun hobby to justify a duplicate of ANY gun, even a gorgeous mini..i could probably sell another gun & get it....but like i said....with so few guns...2 minis seems a bit much.

once upon a time, the stainless mini tactical was quite a rarity. however, ruger has listed them again as standard staple...man, i don't know why, but i would really like to have one.

SO....if i could get another mini tomorrow...it would be a stainless tactical!
i've already got a spare wood stock waiting for it! :D

of course, if i'm dreaming, a new stainless tactical would look mighty fine in a factory folder....:cool:

I have three, four if you count the one that lives at my buddies house. One is heavily modded, one is as close to a rifle as I could get it and the last is a 580 Tactical. What stopped my projecting was the gun crunch with a gunsmith backlog and then my job ended. In the months before that all I thought about was getting ammo and ARs after Sandy Hook. I'll see if I can post a pic or so.

Crap, wrong pic. Old Savage 110 tactical

There IS a picture of my old 65-3 around here somewhere...with my pink fuzzy bunny slipper ensconced feet in the background. I still have those slippers.

Only tan on the end...Carhartt steel toe socks. If you are on concrete 12 hours a day they are a must. But now that I'm home if someone wants to send me a pair like yours.....I still won't wear them:eek:

i just wish ruger made a mini in 30-06 semi auto that could handle rounds up to 220grains. that and get rid of that birdcage hider they ike to use on everything.

ive always wanted a mini but in a caliber other than 223 or 7.62x39 i would love one in 30carbine, 30-06, 308, maybe a few others.

!83 series, used to be GB, now zombie gun I guess. Currently sits in a Choate folder with a Butler Creek swing arm.

My buddy and I will someday make a deal on my 196, I think. So it's probably gone, these will be it for me, I can spend the rest of my life messing with them. If the 196 shows up for some reason it will wear the Bayo lug sight removed from the GB,
