I've been on thia forum for awhile now and have nevergbeen on this thread. I've been debating between a Mini 14 and an AR of some sort. Leaning way towards the mini. I know there's probly 1000 posts like this but what do you like about em? I want a wood stock mini I think they are GORGEOUS. I rly want IT for coyotes and HD and plinking and truck gun and...my go to tool. How reliable is it? I've heard they hold their own and are a great SHTF gun. That's what I want. Any comments?
