Poll, Should I wait for a gun show and get a Mosin nagant under 250, or get a nice 12g shotgun? for under 250$ I like shotguns they are fun to shoot but I really want a Mosin nagant because bolt action are fun also :) and its a War gun From WWII. :confused: :confused:

At a gun show, you could go used on the shotgun and get both for that much.

Do you have a house gun yet? If not, go for the shotgun first. If you do, I say check out all the Nagants there. They're great cheap fun.

I havnt bought a shotgun for a long time but I believe you can still get a new 870 express for around that price.

You can still get Mosin Nagants for under $100..
If your current HD Shotgun isn't 12ga, why not:
- Take it to the gunshow
- Sell it
- Use money from sale towards the $250 and buy a cheap Mosin, a nice 12ga and some ammo!


EDIT: Or just buy the Mosin, since you said you really want a bolt action.

According to J&G Sales, they come in "very good to excellent condition".

YMMV.
Good Luck!

Tough choice: a firearm that won't blow up in your face vs. playing army.

What do you want to do with a firearm?

Once you figure out what your needs are, or what niche a firearm needs to fill, then you can figure out what gun to buy.

Total for both: $180

Left over for ammo: $70 (or more)

Enjoy. :)
