The title says it all.

Im so excited because Im picking up another Mosin, this time the m38 with the appropiate m38 stock this weekend. Theres a gunshow in Austin, I met this gentleman at the last show here in San Antonio, I told him I would call him a few days before this Austin show and see if he had some m38's, well he does :)

One of them has the proper stock, the others are the later m44 stocks replaced during the rearsenaling process. Im pumped, because I wanted to find a good m38 with the right stock, looks like Im going to get my wish :) It sounds like it will be a very good speciment too, most excellent. He also said he will have some surplus 7.62x54 and some of it is the silver tipped chezch stuff and Im picking up as much as that that he brings to this show :)

Its also good because theres a THR shoot in Austin that afternoon so Ill have a new toy and a place to play with it the same day and a chance to meet some of the great THR folks around here. This Saturday will be a good one :)

Oh what fun, I get to scratch the m38 off my wish list, many more to go, damn milsurps :)

Range report and pics will follow on Sat, also we shall have the info from the shoot to share.

This shall be one great weekend.

Cheers everyone.
Jeremy

Excellent.
I've got an M44 and a 91/30, and love them both.
