The Ruger Mini-30 is a semi-automatic rifle which fires the 7.62x39mm round. It is a moderately priced firearm which can be found in many gun shops. It’s more popular cousin the Ruger Mini-14 which fires the .223 round is even more widespread. Both rifles are fairly reliable and accurate for their intended purpose. They offer great performance when used with scopes from https://adventurefootstep.com/vortex-optics/ as well.

The weight of the Mini-30 is a little over six pounds and the full length is 37.25 inches. Barrel length is 18 ½ inches. An owner can stick to the original stock or use black tactical stocks if legal in one’s state. The Mini-30 fires the same rounds as those fired through the traditional AK-47. One should use cheap foreign ammo at their own risk as such could cause corrosion/damage to the firearm.

Magazines are somewhat easier to find for the .223 model than for the Mini-30. Avoid cheaply made magazines as these will cause the rifle to jam, I learned this the hard way. Magazines made by Eagle tend to perform well under most circumstances. The factory 5 round magazine is adequate for basic shooting or long range target practice although many prefer at least a 10 round magazine with a semi-auto rifle.

While the Mini-30 has not seen as much use in military or police units as the Mini-14 it is popular among civilian shooters due to its affordable price and relatively low cost of ammo. It was introduced in 1987 and is a choice for some deer hunters. The Russian round is also able to penetrate more deeply than the .223 round but may not be as effective as the .223 in a self defense role due to a smaller permanent wound channel.

The rifle has a hand guard for protection from excessive barrel heat and better handling. The sights on the model tested were standard adjustable iron sights. A quality scope may be mounted if desired. I would recommend getting tall scope rings if getting an extended range scope to clear enough room for the front of the optics.

Recoil is pleasant on this model. In fact I would say the recoil is relatively light. It does not absorb recoil as smoothly as a well built AK-47 but it is light enough to keep one on target. I could shoot a Mini-30 for hours while a standard 12 gauge shotgun would leave my shoulder sore after a box or two. Purchase multiple magazines for the Ruger and you can do some serious target practice at the range. Some ranges will allow you to do controlled rapid fire and the Mini-30 handles well under such conditions.

The model I tested has a wood stock and a blued metal finish. Ruger does make an all weather model that comes with a synthetic stock and stainless steel upper receiver. Ruger is also now offering a model using the 6.8mm Rem SPC round. Regardless of the calibers or models you try I’m sure you will recognize quality firearms comparable to other semi-autos. Try a Ruger rifle out at the range to see if it fits your needs.

Perfect proposal planning can seem stressful just like making arrangements for a whole wedding. Every couple desires to have memorable proposal moments.

Some look for wedding proposal ideas online or take hints from their future fiancé on how she would like to be proposed.

When you are planning proposal stages there are some things you must never do, when you pop the question. Below are common wedding proposal errors to avoid for a memorable engagement moment.

Direct proposal without any planning

Popping a proposal suddenly will just create awkward and uncomfortable moments like unwanted tears. Think of how you desire to propose– like take her on a Black Swan Gondola cruise. They offer a comprehensive romantic wedding proposal package including a Gondola ride, bouquet of red roses, rose petals scattered, chilled beverages, and a Venetian Gondolier.

Propose with planning too much

You ask a lot of advice from friends and family on how to propose. It can lead to a massive headache and a handful of opinions. Instead, take advice from 2 to 3 friends and choose parts from each one’s responses and plan a unique proposal.

Overcomplicating it

The proposal needs to run smoothly but nerves run high. It is normal! So, you incorporate an array of people and things like a scavenger hunt or flash mob, which creates a complication and the whole thing busts. You need to practice in advance to ensure everything unfolds smoothly during the moment or avoid and keep things relatively simple!

Do it incorrectly

If your would-be fiancé is a shy and introvert person than proposing on a giant billboard or anywhere in public will be incorrect. If she likes big gestures and romance never propose sitting on the sofa wearing pajamas. So, think about what kind of a person she is while planning a proposal.
