Very true!
Unfortunately, I have trouble controlling a .45 - too heavy and too much recoil for me. But my Browning Hi-Power 9mm is a decent compromise, I think.
 
I've thought seriously about the Mini-14 and its many cousins, but the recent frenzy about Obama banning weapons drove the prices far beyond anything I'd consider fair value. That's not likely to change anytime soon, so I'll just have to wait until I find one at an estate sale or swap meet where I might find a seller who's ignorant of current prices.
