The Ruger Mini-14, a great alternative to the AR-15.

I’ve written extensively about my love for the AR-15 platform.  How I believe it to be one of the best choices for a SHTF gun, based on a myriad of factors.  Still there are other time tested, proven (and cheaper) platforms out there that can hold their own, the Ruger Mini-14 being one of them.  I own a Mini-14 and think it’s a great semi-auto with classic looks and functionality.  The price is right too, usually coming in several hundred dollars cheaper than the AR-15.  Instead of doing a write up I’ve chosen to post up Hickok 45’s review of the Mini 14.  I’m a big fan of his vids, I like his unpretentious attitude and how he clearly just has fun while doing the reviews.
