Is this an assault rifle, my xmas to myself

Postby Alan » Wed Dec 28, 2016 8:10 pm

Bought this for myself a few days ago, not really a Xmas present to myself just a rifle I have wanted for a while.

Would this be considered an assault rifle?

How about now?

Nope. It ain't all black and scary looking.

Only one third the equation. lol Mine is stainless and black synthetic and I don't think it qualifies.

It's lots better than an AR. I have both but carry the Ruger when I wanna shoot a lot. Is it a Mini 14 or Mini 30?

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

I have lots of guns and shoot a mini 14 more than all the rest together.

Its not by the true definition but is by liberal logic.

Im not a big 30rd mag guy. The 10-15s always seem to carry better and are plenty for what I do. The 30rd mags add a lot of weight.

I usually just keep a 10 Rd in mine. Not as bulky.

I simply bought them because I can at this time. But I did load one up and us it adds a bunch of weight. The way I am I will no doubt rapid fire though a 30 mag look at all the casings on the ground and start thinking about how fast I wasted money and much I wasted. Then they go in the safe and I just fire from the stock mag.

Ammo has gotten lots cheaper since the election. Enjoy it.

I would think it depends on what you do with the rifle myself. I use a 20 round clip in my knock around guns, the clip size makes a perfect rest.
