Holy cow man!, I've been kicking around the idea of getting one, talking with my wife about it she even said "that's cool! why don't you order one" I should probably jump on that but I'm still uncertain about it, think I'd rather wait till I can pick one in person.

I got a great deal on a SVT-40, but find I don't shoot it too often. It is a pain in the butt to clean and is expensive and fragile. The last time I fired it, the wood started smoking and I was afraid the wood was going to burst into flame. I am scared I am going to break the damn thing. I am thinking about swapping it for a PU sniper, something I can shoot without guilt.

I've read alot about these on FTF, and want to know why everyone loves them so much? Is it the price, accuracy, or something else? Really want to know! Fleet Farm has them on sale for $89.99!

Ok guys I know I'm leaving myself open for a public flogging here but the Mosin is a chapter I seem to have missed in my shooting career.
I have seen these things around for many years now, sometimes at ridiculously low prices and my first thought was "now thats a seriously ugly rifle"! I hear they are good shooters but so are many others so my question is what is the fascination with these ugly guns and why should I add one to my collection? This is an honest inquiry so please go easy as I'm old and sensitive.

I read that on Wikipedia, so it is the cost, makes sense now!
