Hello, Everyone, Although not new to shooting, I am a new and enthusiastic addition to the community of responsible gun owners. My question focuses on my recent purchase of a Ruger Mini-14, and the appropriate scoping and red-dot accessories the community recommends. Some data: This is primarily a home-defense/ranch-defense weapon. Primary ranges of engagement would be 0-100 yards (action), and also 100-350 yards (precision). It would be complemented in its defense duties by a Mossberg 12-guage and a Berrata 92F. Price budgets: Scope, <=$750; RedDot, <=$450. I recognize I would need to purchase rails, etc.; and respectfully request suggestions for these, as well. My idea was a top-mounted scope mounted, and the dot side mounted. I humbly ask this great group of experts what they would recommend for a poor newbie such as myself who has a strong passion to get his rig set up right. Any information provided would be most greatly appreciated -- my friend told me this was the forum to get advise from real gun folk. I'm proud to be joining the community! Thanks again in advance for your responses.
