I'm torn between a puma lever action in .357 and a mini 14. I'm looking for pros and cons to help me make my decision. Price is about the same by $100 or so. And the all guns being banned argument isn't a factor in my decision.

Have you coonsidered a Marlin 1894C? They are very nice guns. I have a Mini also, the NRA edition, pretty nice gun but not the best.

From what i've seen on the puma reviews on the web i've seen 15000 rounds 0 failure and never did find a bad post. I'm leaning that direction but for some reason the mini came into my mind today. And as far as the 10/22 I do loike that but I can't bring myself to put 300 dollars in a 200 dollar rifle. Maybe someday.

I'd go with the puma here; versatile , fast, can hold a bunch of rounds, tube fed so no cost for extra mags, and a very good rep. I'd do it.
