    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.

    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.

    I never said anything about bore shape..

    J&G Sales

    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.
