mosin snipers being destroyed!
 
1 Attachment(s)
While thumbing through a magazine, I came across Mitchell's ad selling original mosin 91/30 pi rifles. They stated "these historic rifles ate being destroyed under pressure from the u.n." What a bunch of crap. It's one more reason not to like the u.n.

The UN can go to hell. :mad:

If they ever come over here, and try to physically take my guns away, they better be right with god, because I intend to send them to him.

Saw that ad too. Don't know the truth one way or the other, but i do know Mitchell's Mausers has been called out repeatedly in the past for deceptive marketing and other unscrupulous sales practices (selling refinished Yugo M24 Mausers as original K98s, etc
)

Didn't know that fly. I was wondering why an old bolt action was being destroyed with all the black market full auto AK rifles...

I agree there is no way these guns are being destroyed there is way to much money to be made by selling surplus arms.

It didn't make sense to me, but lots of crap like that doesn't make any sense. I wouldn't put it past the u.n. because of the "threat" it puts on the powers that be with those evil weapons in the hands of citizens.

Yea, I went past one near me two days ago. DO THEY SCREAM THE ENTIRE COMMERCIAL? At least they didn't have those tall blow up people that flap around in the air like the used car lot.

Wrong, they ARE destroying some of their caches. But I don't think the UN had much to do with it.
