Why not buy a 91/30 (7.62x54R) or a VZ/24 (8x57mm) and shoot the snot out of either one of them with NO worries?

Wall mount the Carcano, it does have a story now.

if i were to buy a new gun, it would be a handgun for open carry. ( i live on a private road). okay, i am 15 years old, but i do consider myself an enthusiast, at least a young one! now when i buy guns i just give the money to my parents, tell them what i want, and if they approve, i get it. they are very liberal but i have been trained properly. my dad used to teach courses to leo's for 10 years. they treat me like an adult, i.e. i have my own house, car, credit cards, guns etc.

anyway, i currently have a .22 for plinking, and the carcano, which i didn't buy it was passed down from my mom. i do have 1/3 share on a family shotgun though!

so, i think i would like a nice 9mm keltec, and then a rock river AR-15. then i'll get some more old rifles.

P.S. if you think we are rich and have a bunch of stuff, think again! we live in the middle of south missouri!

Monty- on the road right now, 2000 miles from my references, but here is what I could find for you-

In 1941, the Italian military returned to a long-barrelled infantry rifle once again (slightly shorter than the original M91), the Carcano M91/41. True sniper versions never existed, but in World War I a few rifles were fitted with telescopes and issued for service use (World War II scoped rifles were strictly prototypes).

Since the 1980s, several lots of Moschetti M91/38 TS (special troops' carbines) chambered for the German 7.92x57mm Mauser sS heavy ball round, have appeared on the surplus markets. Two small batches of Moschetti M91/38 TS carbines shows barrels marked 1938 and 1941, but they were not used at these times with any Italian forces, and their peculiar serial numbering suggests that these might just be rebored unused surplus barrels that were converted with other ones after 1945. Many 7.92 mm Carcano carbines were apparently exported to Egypt after World War II, where they served as drill and training carbines. Several also bear Israeli armed forces markings. The occasionally used model moniker "Model 1943 (M43)" for these converted 7.92mm rifles is wrong, as they were never so designated by the Italian military.
