Another Day, Another Gun Show

Postby gandog56 » Sun Jan 12, 2014 12:29 pm

Went to a gun show today. Looking iand looking......where are the Mosins? Found a Chinese one missing the bayonet, guy wanted some ridiculous price. Found a Finn at $300, but it had a VKT barrel, I already have one of those.


Then there it was, the mother lode! 20 Mosin Nagant 91/30's in a rack, all of them still completely covered in cosmoline. But not Tula's, no hex receivers. Decent price though I guess. $149 with all the accessories included. I did manage to walk out with no new Mosin Nagant, but it was hard.
Many people say I am paranoid because I have so many guns. If I have many guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Going to PA Harrisburg to gun show shop for another Mosin. Would love to see a rack of them like that. At my local dealer they still run 199 and no accessories. I don't really care if my mosins are tulas I now they are rarer cause they only made about a third as many but they don't shoot any better.

I'd like to go to a shop or gun shop here in NC and find a Mosin with the accessories for $149. We got Mosin for $149 but w/o accessories

Classic Arms has a bunch of B grades in stock right now for $110. Nothing worth collecting but they'd be great for project rifles. I'm seriously considering picking up a crate of then when my C&R arrives.
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined,but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them,which would include their own government.

I've always kind of thought about buying a crate of them, but do remember a C&R is NOT like a 001 license. How do I explain to ATF agents how I bought twenty, but only kept one or two of them and sold the rest?

Cherry picking one or two rifles and selling the rest probably wouldn't fly as "making room in your collections" justification for selling but hey it might.
