    I got a M/N-91/30 M44 carbine last week. My thinking at the time was

    "Hey, why not? Doesn't cost much, it's handy, and how can you

    not like a milsurp which comes with a retractable bayonet?

    What I never realized at the time was how much fun this thing

    is to shoot. I believe I like to shoot it more than my AK or Garand.

    I went out to the range to put a few rounds through it, thinking

    "Well, I'll make sure it shoots, and put it away."

    Over 100 rounds later, I discovered I was hooked!

    Anybody else catch the M/N bug?

    I live in MA. No gun store has military surplus, I can't have any ammo shipped to MA, so I'm going to have to get it out of state.

    I do believe I offered to use my address here in the free State on N.H. to ship to.
    Affordable/Collectors on 38 in Pelham has it. 2 miles from the border.

    I think the wife is looking into getting me one for my birth day next month. I cant wait! I have wanted one for a while, but decided to use all my "this is your money to spend" on the colt 1911 gold cup.......
