You can use it for a crutch or a splint for your leg! If you have the money, why not.

I have a couple of them. I've yet to regret either purchase, really cool gun for the price.
I got one last month for $105.00. I really like it. Took a while to get it clean enough to handle, then more cleaning before going to the range. Lower recoil than any rifle I ever shot. Accuracy is ok. But good enough to hit a small Tannerite cannister at 50yrds. Buy the gun and have fun. Plus the history on them is very interesting. Thinking about the Mosin pistol next.
If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
yea i went in today. as usual i got delayed. i should really get a unique fbi number...i should have it home in a couple days.
I picked one up from the Appleton Fleet Farm earlier this year for $99.99, then got a $10 in store credit. It's a ton of fun to shoot. They also sell slip on rubber pads there. I think I paid $15 for the cheapest one they had and it was a huge improvement. It still has all the kick it used to, just less of sharpness of the steel plate. I bought mine as a project gun just to play with for cheap. This is what mine looks like now (without the rubber pad)

heh, i was thinking the same thing. what scope mount did you use? and is that the stock off cheaper than dirt?
UTG Airgun .22 High Profile Integral 1-Inch Ring Mount: Amazon.com: Sports & Outdoors
and this scope:
NcStar 2-7X32 Pistol Scope/Blue Lens/Ring (SPB2732B): Amazon.com: Sports & Outdoors
The stock is the original that I chopped down and fiberglassed up. The original wood in the front was too thin to mount a bipod to, so I doubled its thickness with fiberglass. I haven't gotten around to buying a bipod for it yet.
The ring mount is supposed to be for a air gun or 22, but I couldn't justify spending half the cost of the gun or more on good ring mounts, so I bought the sturdiest ones I could find for cheap. I figured the one solid piece would hold better than trying to mount two separate rings.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

thanks to both of you!
Congrats Fausty on your new old gun! Post pics when you get it
Done whining now...
I bought one from budsgunshop.com. Fun to shoot and doesn't kick nearly as hard as everyone makes out. Mine is fairly accurate, I can easily hit a man size target @ 100 yards.
