Default Picked up a tactical

Picked up a brand new, never been fired mini this morning from a private seller. Came with Ruger 20 rd mag, scope rings, some off-brand 30 rd mag, & 100 rounds of ammo. Not proud of the price, but I got me one. Now for a fore grip. Thank God those are cheap.

I saw a mini 30 with a 20 rd mag at an lgs selling for $1085. The 223 55 gr ammo fmj was selling for $1/shot! You can buy 7.62x39 for $7/box.

That's making me feel a whole lot better about my deal. Ordered a fore grip and bipod today. It is going to be very hard to track down ammo.

i always thought if i could justify another mini (i really can't ), that i would get a stainless tactical and dress that beast up in wood. seen a few done this way, and they are a beauties!

i'm trying to brainwash the tactical crowd over to the "wood side," one by one.

congrats on the mini. is it your first?

I think it's tactical because of all the functional options like the folding stock and the picatinny rails give it all kinds of versatility. And it is pretty cool.
