Curious how did the Mini-14 run in the course? Any major issues/problems?
What gear were you using to support it (mag pouches, sling, etc...)? Ammo used?
I ask because I am planning to take a carbine course in the future and the Mini-14 is the rifle I am planning to use. As you said most of these courses are developed around using an AR-15 or AK style rifle so I am looking how you felt it went using a Mini.
