good points! a mini in 308 would be my choice if they did another caliber...

but hopefully cheaper than a 1500-2000+ M1A!!!

many people seem to dislike the birdcage....most flashhinders/muzzlebreaks don't draw my attention....unless they look plain stupid...

Was checking my inventory photos and realized they were all taken on beige carpet, me wearing beige sox- and so does everyone else!
no sir! my socks are 80% white AT LEAST!

there should be a whole thread dedicated to sock/feet pics and their intimate connection with guns.

I would love to own that. I've always wanted to own a mini but as you said there are too many holes in my collection too so it'll have to wait. Some day....

Too many guns, not enough money. I have a knack for picking up expensive hobbies. Why couldn't I just knit or something?

I have 3 a standard 196, target model and the 6.8 SPC. I can't decide between a Takedown 10/22 or mini 30.

How's the 6.8 Spc version shoot? How about finding magazines?

I have a mini 14 and a mini 30....great rifles. Would mind adding another at some point and the 6.8 is intriguing....
