    There seems to be a craze for military AR/AK style guns.

    I have been thinking the Ruger Mini 14 or Mini 30 might be a better
    choice for a handgun guy like me?

    What simple, reliable, dependable, easy to maintain SD carbine would you recommend for a handgun guy?

    Thanks,
    Especially for answering the never ending SD questions you get
    with such class.

    .223/5.56mm ballistics are close to ideal for home defense rifles. AR15 platform or Ruger Mini-14 would be at the top of my own list.

    best,
