I can't decide how I feel about this Mosin...

    Yeah I saw that on another forum too. I just don't get the point of a tacticool bolt action.

    Well, that is certainly something. :shock:
     
  5. I don't think there's any point to it; I'm just struggling to decide whether or not it's funny-cool or funny-stupid. I mean, there's a certain amount of wry humor involved with a project like that. You have to at least appreciate the time and effort that went into building something that obviously took some work, just to get a laugh. Nobody that's that good at putting together a weapon builds that rifle for any sort of serious purpose. That isn't some duct-tape bubba job, whoever built it is a pro. With a sense of humor. Make a heck of an entry gun. :D Man-stopping power with a built-in flamethrower.

    I kinda felt that same way about Zoe's mare's-leg and Jayne's "Vera". Then they sorta grew on me.

    Personally I think that guy just took a massive crap on a piece of history. He took a perfectly good rifle and made it into some monstrosity. Yeah, I think it's funny because the guy looks like a tool, so I guess that would be the funny-stupid way.

    Awww..... You can't be bagging on Jayne's Vera. I mean, ANY man who'd only let his gun go in order to trade it for another man's wife REALLY has an attachment to such a thing. And no matter what the gun looks like, you know it's love....

    Although I am impressed with you actually knowing the name of his gun. I was actually partial to Mal's funky peacemaker/model 66 looking sidearm for some reason. I just needed a pearl handle that's all

    Besides, I'm willing to but $20 that the guy built that with a SERIOUS purpose. I'm getting a redneck vibe off of that fellow.
     
  10. yeah its the most pointless, and stupid bubba i've ever seen

    kill me now please

    Don't jump to conclusions man. There's a thousand reasons this rifle could have been chosen for such a project. Cracked stock, missing stock, ruined barrel, salvaging someone elses bubba job, I mean there's plenty of possibilities that could have been the origin of such a project. First we must figure out what stock he started with to fit to the mosin. Looks to be a shotty stock I've seen somewhere else. Might not have been THAT hard to do if you had the stock laying around and a dremel. Plus you had to have a few rainey days and one helluva imagination.

    I still think her Mare's-leg look-alike is badass. I'm considering getting one of these: http://www.wildwestguns.com/Bushwacker/bushwacker.html as an homage. Any woman who can kick that much ass is alright by me. :D
     

  14. He's a member at SKSBoards and that is pretty much the story. I also think he said the barrel looks shorter than it is because of the angle of the photo.

    True...nothing wrong with robbing the parts bin when you are bored and you got a dead blaster sitting on the shop bench.

    p.s.
    You can have Zoe....Kaylee was WAY hotter :)
     
  16. Yes, absolutely Kaylee's hotter. But Zoe could kill you with her pinky which demands a healthy level of respect. And then there's Inara... :shock:
