Get a Mosin-Nagant rifle, and get a Turk Mauser, and then worry about getting more after you have some fun with them! They are used/re-conditioned at the arsenal to nice quality and most of all- INEXPENSIVE! Collecting is different from selling. I collect because I want to KEEP them all, not sell them. Shooting them is fun because there is lots and lots of ammo for them all. No ammo is "Hard to get or re-load" some just cost more $$'s. but it is out there. Buy everything you can afford and shoot to your hearts content! I have at least 15 that i paid less than $150 for and they are all fine guns. My Grandkids have already staked their claims to most of'em so I already have homes for them after i get too old and they have my love of shooting. At these prices I can give them away if I felt the emotions hit me .
