Default The Mosin Nagant bug...

I got a M/N-91/30 M44 carbine last week. My thinking at the time was

"Hey, why not? Doesn't cost much, it's handy, and how can you

not like a milsurp which comes with a retractable bayonet?

What I never realized at the time was how much fun this thing

is to shoot. I believe I like to shoot it more than my AK or Garand.

I went out to the range to put a few rounds through it, thinking

"Well, I'll make sure it shoots, and put it away."

Over 100 rounds later, I discovered I was hooked!

Anybody else catch the M/N bug?

I live in MA. No gun store has military surplus, I can't have any ammo shipped to MA, so I'm going to have to get it out of state.

I do believe I offered to use my address here in the free State on N.H. to ship to.
Affordable/Collectors on 38 in Pelham has it. 2 miles from the border.
