Before you ask a question, check the FAQ

Ask questions, answer questions, bitch about Air Force recruiters. Just keep it contained to this general

I have a new big-boy job, moved out of mommy's house and am starting to build my /k/ollection of firearms, however I'm really a frugal fag, and love handguns more than rifles, so my idea was to do 1 gun that could hunt durr/play the role of "scary black rifle".
After soul searching and research, I really like the idea of a Ruger Mini-30
>ballistics very similar to venerable 30/30 for hunting
>20 round magazines
>that m1 fetish
I found this picture and really like this setup - the "tactical" version with an accu-strut, "scout" scope, cheek riser and what not.
My only questions are these -
How much do mini's suck these days? I've heard nightmares
How hard am I going to be raped on magazines?
16.15" barrel too short for <200 yd hunting?
Is there another semi-auto rifle that could be had for <$1000 that doesn't shoot $1 bills that could be utilized for home defense/deer hunting?
