my plan today was to go to the rifle range. my wife called me when i just got there and said: "HEY!! there is a gunshow in union grove!!" so after only a few shots i headed home and off to the show. turned out to be a good day!! picked up a Mosin M44 for 175$ two sets of lee dies one for 45-70 32$ one for 9mm 47$ new one lee crimp die for 45-70 12$. payed a little more than midway price on the 9mm but the difference was the shipping. combined 45-70 and 9mm dies saved a total 24$ + whatever the shipping woulda been. also got some pink cannon fuse!! who can resist pink cannon fuse!! the wife got me a pack of qtips on a stick too. got a pink belt holster for my bersa thunder 25$ portion went to breast cancer charity. My wife got a book called "The Cornered Cat: A Woman's Guide to Concealed Carry" by Kathy Jackson 374 pages. the mosin imported by r-guns looks like its brand new only a small rubbing wear mark on a small corner of the stock. all major parts match its got a 1945 stamp by ishvek. the bolt works very smooth for a mosin. the trigger has a LOT of creep. it eventually breaks and its consistant. ill have to take it down as it feels like the trigger has been bubba'd a bit. but mosin triggers are cheap. ive been looking for a m44 for a good price so im happy with 175 out the door. anyway it was a good day even if i didnt get much shooting in.
