    If you pull the trigger and it goes "bang", it does pretty much all that a Mosin was ever asked to do

    I own and compete in the Vintage Rifle League with 2 Mosins. Better than an AR? I don't think so!

    Actually his point seems to be that it is more important to train with and be proficient with your chosen weapon, vs worrying to much about the gun you have.

    I would have to agree with him

    I keep mine around just for the intrinsic value of a piece of history.

    Not all of my firearms were bought to "do work". Some are just around for fun shooting days. Perfect example of one that's cheap to shoot, fun to shoot and interesting to look at.

    My humble opinion. Not trying to troll.

    Also a C&R collector here...

    The Mosin is a serviceable bolt-action rifle with several big "IF"s
    - If you don't run into the sticky bolt problem
    - If you don't get rim-lock
    - If you get one that is accurate
    - If you don't have to reload in a hurry

    Serviceable, but not "the best" by any stretch of the imagination. Even among bolt-actions, I'd take a Mauser any day over a Mosin (no rim-lock, easier to work the bolt, the stripper-clips work better).

    My solution for "accurizing" a Mosin rifle:
    Just buy 3 test them and select the most accurate
    Nowadays, a Mosin is a cheap way to get a piece of history and a serviceable high-power bolt-action with cheap ammo. Just don't try to turn it into something its not.

    I haven't been around as long as most of you folks, but still I dislike the "if its the only thing you have, and you train with it" argument because if you follow that line of thinking, then eventually you could argue that a sharp pointed stick is a 'good' weapon because "its the only thing you have and you have trained with it"
