    I fully understand. Besides, the Mosin is lighter and easier to conceal.

    No, it was Keystone Gun Club. It's like 5 minutes from my house. Bob's is quite a drive from me. Bob's raised their rates to $20

    -Excellent Fresh air ventilation and exhaust
    -Lots of Lanes
    -Open 10a-5p Mon thru Friday. 9-3 on Sat.
    $20 per person per hour. Last shooter is taken at 4pm Mon thru Friday.
    .22 Pistol rental is a possibility on Friday and Saturday. (call 476-7523 for details)

    LOL..pretty much. I did carry the JCP twice. It wasn't awful. Honestly, the hardest part was sitting down. The length was a problem

    If you were local where there'd be no FFL fees I'd see if we could work something out. I have 2 Mosin Nagant 91/30's. You should have been here about a month ago, there was a store going out of business and they were selling Mosins for $89.99 plus tax so the out the door price was under $96. I bought my second one too soon, I bought it when they only had 20% off (went to 40% off right before they closed), so my second one ended up costing me about $130 out the door. If I hadn't already had a couple of them I'd have definitely bought 1 or 2 at that price. Guess I should have bought a couple more and resold at a profit.

    I can see the sense in getting a MN.
    It can cover more needs then the JCP.
    I've been playing with the idea of getting an MN and "building" a sniper copy with a PU scope...

    I like tinkering so I'd probably get in touch with Smith and try and accurize the thang
    Just for giggles....

    Yeah, I know I'll definitely get more use out of the Mosin.

    Swaga, I would love to make my own Sniper version, that's so cool.

    Moona, you know I need one, I know I need one...my wife, well, she doesn't think I need the 5 guns I have LOL

    Hence, the trade idea.

    Posted my Stallard JS-9 here for $115. Nobody gave two $hits. Put it up on Armslist for $175. Sold it for $160 in under 24 hours.

    What the hell you doing wrong Tall?

    No luck yet. No worries right now, with all the funeral prep I have been doing haven't really thought about it. Plus, the wife's car is in the garage right now, that's going to cost at least $1,000, I still need a car (looking right now) and we want to put carpet in the house, so all of those things are priorities over a new gun. Eventually, some one will take me up on it.

    I had someone offer $150 for the C9, but since that is my carry gun, and I don't have the $ to add to id to get something else ( I still really want at SCCY), I passed on that. I am getting tired of carrying that C9 though

    You can get T53 for $99. Beat up but with a little work they kick ass

    Well I got an email today. All he (she?) said was they have a Mosin they'd consider trading. So I replied, asked a few questions and told them I'm still interested. We'll see what happens.

    I was gonna make you an offer on your .40 but i'm not sure i can pick it up high enough to shoot it.

    If you want to shoot the sccy drive south 90 minutes and shoot the wife's pink and stainless cpx-2. I would never post pictures of you shooting it on here ever.

    Definitely have to come check that out. I'm man enough to shoot a pick gun.

    The JCP is heavy, but it's awesome

    Got this email this morning

    Sounds very interesting.

    Unfortunately, besides some .22LR, I don't have much to trade. I MIGHT be able to come up with a little cash, but not much. The wife's car is in the garage right now and I am still searching for a car.

    Put my JCP on Armslist

    Well, no 'need for the extra stock' could be a start.
    Sporter stocks run around $75-$80 and up.
    How much .40 ammo do you have on your side?

    If it's in good condition (& wood) I'll buy the sporter stock off you.
