The answers you are going to receive will be as diverse has the people who visit this forum. I for one do own and enjoy shooting my 91/30. The key is to see it for what it is, a moderately powered WW2 vintage rifle that's longer than a hookers dream. Ammo is cheap and plentiful albeit corrosive has all get out, and it is suitable for most game in North America. If you don't mind giving it a thorough cleaning after every outing I would say go for it.
