    Looking to get either a Remington 870 or Mossberg 590 next. Anyone have thoughts on those models?
    Guns are darn expensive ;w; I'd have like 30 if I weren't living paycheck to paycheck these days.

    Having owned a Mossberg 500 series I must say they're great guns. Durable, simple breakdown, easy to maintain and use. If you're going for a 590 but are strapped for cash, I'd just get a 500. Same design, same aftermarket parts and accessory options. Only difference is you don't get the bayonet lug, really. That and they're like half the cost.

    870's are nice if you can find an older one, I've heard Remington's had reliability and quality assurance issues since they were bought out by Freedom Group. If you can find a pre-2007 model I say go for it, if it's made after '07 I'd be wary, it's luck of the draw with what kind of quality you're getting with the newer stuff it seems.

    Well, I don't think I'd need a bayonet lug. The Mossberg 500 series seems quite reasonable and affordable, thanks for the recommendation!

    They don't make them, but there are places where you can send them your own image and they'll make them to order. Here's one, for instance: https://www.gungrips.net/
    Alas, in their faq they state that they refuse to do porn, and reserve the right to determine what porn is. I'm guessing that obvious erections would qualify.

    And Brace, sometimes garish is good. ^_^

    Any of you guys ever try out Winchester Subsonic .22LR?
    What were your thoughts on them? I wanted to get them for trapping but I'm a little uneasy about hollowpoints because I don't want to destroy fur.

    I only has a mosin nagant. I took it apart in order to remove all the weird packaging oil it was in then put it back together. I have yet to test fire it, no places locally to do so. I hand picked the one with the communist hammer and sickle for ironic purposes (I'm heavily philosophically and ethically opposed to communism).

    I'm kinda jealous of your firearm with the furry profile on it Brace! I'd get a handgun license, but I'm in NY state. It's most likely not going to happen. X3

    At least you're not in NYC You got a better chance at it at least. Honestly if I had to live in NY I'd probably do police work part-time just so I could have decent access to firearms. Which really isn't right, but some places you gotta do what you gotta do.

    I've been meaning to get me some commie guns. I'd love a ruskie SKS, I do need to get at least one Mosin, and what's a firearms collection without a Makarov! O:

    Also yeah, that cosmoline stuff can be a pain in the patoot. ;w;

    You need a handgun license to own a handgun in NYC? If so, thank the lord I live in Texas. I heard Russian arms and scurried on over to this thread, I own two Mosins one was a beater that I converted to a sporter and the other is in original configuration. One thing about Mosins is if you shoot the surplus ammo that comes in "spam" cans be sure to immediately clean every part of that rifle. The primers used in the rifle rounds has a biproduct that is corrosive and will start to rust your mosin almost immediately. All you really need to dilute the acidic salts is to use hot water and ammonia before carrying on with normal cleaning and oiling. Though my hex receiver I barely shoot mostly because it is my current "museum" gun meaning I just have it to say I own it LOL.

    Jim, if you want to get an SKS I'd do it quick. Russian arms aren't coming into America anymore and their prices are quickly rocketing up. I remember when an SKS could be had for around 150 dollars, now they are in the lower 400s. Makarovs are awesome! But if you're looking for an investment gun I'd look for an East German Makarov. Their value is the highest among the Makarovs and will only go up. But if you just want something to plink or poke holes in paper with I'd suggest getting your paws on a bulgarian made Makarov. They are in abundance here in the states, got mine for a little over 100 dollars. For a pistol that essentially shoots a 9mm or .380 that is high value and nothing but fun. Not to mention I can find the makarov round here for a little over 10 dollars for a box of 50, even during the gun scare and "ammo crisis".

    Firearms are fun! I enjoy shooting and hunting with firearms-- most particularly, hunting small game with an old but well-kept .22. I utilize the same fields and backwoods and the same .22 my grandfather used decades ago to put food on the table! It's quite a humbling thing. I also have experience with larger rifles (30-06, 30-30, etc) and pistols as well.

    I would really like to get myself a sturdy little .22 at some point. That's pretty cool that you're doing what your grandfather did with the same rifle! O: That's some interesting history you're recreating!

    Also what kind of bigger rifles have you played with?

    Chinese SKS's are $309 at AIM Surplus (as of this post) and its still technically commie. Clean up the wood and its only difference is the bayonet. Should still be a chrome lined barrel. Good base for making a SKS-M.
