DMacleod - you said you had to make the same decision and went with the GSR. I'm curious...are you happy with the decision you made and the gun? Personally, I REALLY wish they'd offer it in SS.

^ +1 on this. I love stainless; in fact, I never buy guns with a blued finish. If Ruger does bring out the GSR in stainless, my decision is made!!!

Jimro: You are spot-on. I learned long ago to always hold out for what you really want, because if you settle, you'll never be happy. In fact, that applies to more than guns. Also includes cars, knives, televisions, and wives.

Pine after something too long, the dream becomes better than the reality.
That being said buy what you want, but I would also suggest that you consider the M1 Garand. I've owned one since forever and will not let it go until my last breath is gone. If you like the mini 14 (got one of those to) you will like the Garand. But as I said earlier buy what you really want.

P.S. I've always want a M1A to but I don't want another cal. in the safe.

the GSR is a more versatile design with no history of reliability issues. the mini 30 is not. I would much rather take the GSR. probably the only 308 that I have any interest in at the moment.
