No 30-Shot AR? You Have Other Good Rifle Choices.

I get quite a few students from California, and they very well understand how jacked up the state is in regards to the liberal-leaning, goofy laws—especially when it comes to guns. Many have homes, jobs and, most importantly, families they need to stand by, so they hang on. Bluntly, if you are a gun owner and you try to do the right thing, living a decent life there is harder than woodpecker lips.

They have something so stupid, I am not quite sure I have figured it out yet. It has to do with AR-style rifles; they have a list of two or three things the gun has to have and not have—like no bayonet lug. What, no bayonet lugs?! I digress. So the really stupid begins, as they must have a key-like or bullet-nose-like latch/button to load or open the action to load… OK, my non-college-educated-dumb-only-finished-high-school mind gets lost.

All right, so I can have all this dumb, legal stuff on what basically amounts to a non-functioning AR, or I can buy a Mini-14 as long as I have only 10-round magazines. Just so I get this right, I can have a semi-auto rifle based on a made-for-war weapon like the Garand or M1 Carbine as long as capacity doesn’t exceed 10-rounds.

If you live in California, I got news for you. Buy a Mini-14 and a box of 10-round magazines. Ruger will be happy and you can defend yourself and family more than “pretty well”; however you’ll need to practice loading a bit. Then again, unless 12 turds attack you, you should be fine.  Remember, you’ll have 11 rounds in your Ruger: one chambered and 10 in your legal magazine. It’ll be OK if you’re in a fight for your life. And if you practice loading a bit, you can reload and pick up the 12th apparently very brave guy, who kept coming while 11 of his buddies went under the bow of the boat during frontal assault on your Ruger rifle. So, a Ruger is good.

    Great comments for those of us remaining in what was once a fair state. Just remember not to put a high quality laminate thumb hole stock on that Mini 14 as it mysteriously transforms into an evil assault rifle.
