Mosin Nagant
 
Brought out my Mosin for the first time today after getting it last weekend at the Syracuse gun show. Really it was a test to see if I got all the cosmoline off everything. I was going to go to the 100 yard range and really just see how I liked shooting it, but I ended up shooting at 200 because there was an hour long wait. I was using the spam can ammo and I actually managed to get a couple on the paper and even one in the black using irons. All I have to do now is get myself a spotting scope ,a recoil pad and a damn ice pack for my shoulder because that thing really kicks! :eek:

Russian soldiers ate Borscht (cold beet soup) so that they could hold the cold bowl against the sore spots!

I'll have a nice bruise tomorrow about the size of my hand ha

Also, I ate Borscht once before....I couldn't say which was worse the soup or stewed socks

Guys, I am older than dirt and I shoot my Mosin-Nagant rifles often, with no added pad, and I never bruise. If you sock it in tight it pushes your shoulder instead of smacking it.

Using the sling really helps with recoil. I shoot 203gr brown bear ammo. Not a lot different than a 22. There is a reason the Russians included the dog collars and it wasn't for captured pets.

I can help you get a recoil pad made for the Mosin nagant. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLACK-MOSIN-NAGANT-RIFLE-STOCK-1-RECOIL-BUTTPAD-M44-M38-BUTT-PAD-91-30-TYPE-53-/200782648189?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ebf94 137d

+1, They are pretty mild compared w/ say a lightweight hunter in .30-06.
