Living in NY I was somewhat limited on selection.
I wanted an M1A but was told by my local shop they wouldn't handle the purchase. It had those evil accessories like a threaded barrel.
I ended up getting a Ruger mini30. It fires 7.62x39. I love it, as long as I use quality brass in it. If I use any of the cheap stuff it tends to
One draw back to keep it legal in NY is I am limited to 5 round clips.
I added an accu strut to get my groupings more acceptable.
It is not a tack driver but at 300yds any aggressive 'deer' approaching my property wont make it.
If the 'deer' happens do get in the house unannounced I have a pistol grip 18" Mossberg pump 12ga.
The mini I got about 3 months ago for $900. The Mossberg about 18 years ago for $300 if I remember right.
I love them both.
Great thread, Thanks
