The reason I chose the video below is pretty simple, I like carbines. They’re easy to shoulder, the magazines (depending on which caliber you choose), can can hold up to 17 rounds and they’re easy to pack around. Now, would I take one hunting, probably not, but they’re a fun gun to plink around with if you’re just out target shooting…and they’re a great gun for self/home defense. I don’t usually give a personal endorsement of any product, but Ruger makes very good firearms, so I don’t have a problem saying I would definitely buy this firearm.
