I need a rifle to shoot 3 gun this year in .223. My preference is an AR but I don't want to sink funds into one and not be able to use it until I move. The other option is something that might be exempt. The new Ruger Mini 14's are nice and I've been considering a Remington pump patrol carbine in .308 or .223. I haven't been here too long. What's the political climate this year? Any rumblings yet?
