Been a Glock 22 shooter for about 10 years. I compete in a pistol club once a month when I'm not leading Boy Scouts or Coaching U11 lacrosse. Our club does some 3 gun shoots in which I've borrowed others' AR15s. Having shot the ARs enough to know that it is not the rifle for me, I've gone ahead and ordered a Mini 14 model 5846 from a local dealer. Should get it this week or next. It will be my first semi-auto rifle. I plan to add a vertical foregrip/bipod, sling and some kind of optic (still researching). After my wife settles down from this purchase, I'll probably convert my Remington 870 to tactical to complete my 3-gun setup.
