I am getting distracted by a Mosin 91/30 and a brand new Ruger American 30-06. Decisions... The Mosin is in nice shape and cheap, I'm researching it a bit more because I'm not familiar with the different types. I've been keeping an eye on local deals and 3 deals come up at the same time, figures, right?
Dude, I love my Mosin-Nagant. you can shoot it all day, ammo is everywhere and it is loud, plus the cartridge is a beast. Do your homework on youtube. I suggest the Iraqveteran8888 videos on how to spot, buy, and clean up your mosin. If you can find one with a good action and barrel, you can get 1-2" groups at 100 yards or you can just ring an 18" gong all day long. Some guys hunt with it too. If you're just looking to shoot a gong all day or have a survival rifle, I cant say enough about the M/N or any other variant. Just make sure you get one in good shape.
I wouldn't worry too much about a beat up stock either. As long as it doesn't have any cracks you can refinish it pretty easily but a good action and barrel are critical.
