I've been contemplating one for about a year now, and for a bit I thought I might as well get a Mosin because it's so popular. I saw several at a gun show yesterday, and I'm just staring them thinking "this isn't for me...". A high-powered, bolt action rifle still, but that's all it is to me. So I got back to thinking about the Carcano. I checked out some online auctions, and they aren't terribly much more expensive. I haven't gotten to fire one before, but I want to have one of my own to go shooting with =). My questions are... -Are they reliable? -How's the ammo cost? -At how far are they accurate? -I'd really like a 91/38, are they hard to find? -What do you think would be a preferred environment to buy one at?
