    I have several other rifles that I would go to first for SHTF or defence. As a matter a fact the mosin would be one of my last choices.
    That being said, I love mine (M91/30) shoot it often, more then most the others. and thinking of getting a second one.

    Remember if you shoot corrosive ammo take your cleaning kit to the range and clean the bore BEFORE you leave. the corrosion starts working fast. And it's brutal.

Gladly spend 1k on a new HD TV.....but only $200 on a 100 year old rifle ??? make sense ????
    This part was obviously missed!!

    I am NOT spending ANY money on this!! I have the chance of doing trades (NON GUN RELATED) and getting one! So I WILL NOT be spending any money and I will NOT be using it to save my life in ANY way!! For that I have a Remington Sendero in 7mm. . . I was mainly asking what everyones opinion of the "Mosin" Itself was NOT if I am smart enough or ballsy enough to put my family or my lifes on the line with it!!

    I appreciate everyones info and would love to hear what anyone else has to say about it!!

    Again NOT 1 DIME will be spent on this rifle simple TRADE ONLY!!

    Think I'd pass. I'm pretty well down the scale of defense rifles being that my primary is a M1 Carbine. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride and I'd have an AR10 or maybe a Springfield so I could reach out and touch someone.

    a mosin will get you in the fight for sure. as most said here...cheap, robust , fairly accurate and cheap to shoot.. not to mention, makes a fine issue to some one who isnt armed.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    True to a point but the often out numbered soldier with an M16/M4 was winning the body count at the end of the fight. Of course sometimes they did not allow us to finish.
    M91030 is worth picking up still 98 dollars around here, Not a bad Idea to pick up and Enfield 303 also
    If you can not defend it, then your just holding it for the next owner.
    When will DHS come for you. They have declared us the enemy

    I agree with smitty901 but now you are having to get more than one type of ammo and 308 ammo is a lot more of a cost than the 762x54 ammo is. Just a thought.

    i got a new mosin carbine still wrapped in cheese cloth and cosmolined for 65$ about 6 or 7 years ago. took it out in the woods by my house and set up a target (a circle drawn on a box) sat it in front of a pine tree. started shooting . from about 50 yards its really accurate. i hit the box everytime. the bullets knocked chunks out of the pine tree. the recoil knocked chunks out of my shoulder. i weigh in at around 160. this thing is fun to shoot sounds like a artillary piece going off, and has knock down power of an enraged rhino.i had a mauser full size. there to big bulky,(i traded it for a Bow)(it was so big holding it up to aim at the target wore me out) i would imagine the full size mosin is about the same. but the little carbine is a great weapon. as a bug out prolly not its loud as hell let everyone know where you are. if you shoot a squirrel or a rabbit with it there wont be anything left so useless for hunting. as a security/defensive weapon when shtf great weapon great weapon. you hit 1 attacker and the rest see the damage they will leave.unlike the .223 which you usually got hit them at least 3 times. of course you'd hit them 3 times with a ar faster than you would once with a mosin probably

    I can not claim it as my own. I got it at ArizonaGunOwners.com and I think the OP there got it from somewhere else too.
