    My new Truck gun

    Well, way back when I was a greenhorn on here I started a post about good options for a truck gun on a budget, which can be found for anyone interested here: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...t=16670&page=3

    Shortly after the thread was up my truck needed a new transmission, so all the saved up cash went into that.

    Anyways, I got a "promotion" at work that pays a little more so I went to the gun shop and picked up a Mosin M44 for $79, and a few hundred rounds of ammo. Didn't get a chance to take it to the range yet, but I'm gonna have a lot of free time in June, so if I don't before graduation I definately will after.

    Thanks for all the input everyone on the old thread. Better late than never I suppose. Now its time to go skip class, watch some Enemy at the Gates, and try to figure out how to explain to the landlord what that smell in the oven is.

    Good ''econo-purchase'' - I was delighted when I picked up my (re-arsenalled) M38 at a gun show three years ago for $59!

    Much more ''wieldy'' guns than the 91/30 - plus the fireball is in itself an offensive weapon LOL! Enjoy.

    I love My M44. Mine groups better with the bayonet extended. Plus I like to put Hot dogs on the bayonet shoot 5 rounds rotate the dogs shoot 5 more rounds and then eat lunch.

    The fireball is intense and will burn the end of the dog nearest the muzzle unless you rotate them.

    Sounds like a good choice. You just can't hurt these things. I am working on playing with mine (ruining it if you ask a collector). I paid $50 for it with the intention of cutting back the wood, checkering the stock, etc.

    Y'know, that might just be something to try next time I'm at the range. I'm not sure it would stay on the bayonet, though. Wouldn't the blast blow it off the end of the poker?

    In all honesty I have thought about it ever since I fired my M44 at dusk. I would try it if no one could see me doing it. If it worked I'd post about it.

    They work well with marshmallows, too.

    I have an m44 in my truck, too. Of the 12 I own, two of them shoot tennis-ball sized "patterns" at about 100 yards, so I rotate them through the back of the randrewagon.

    I love those Mosins. Cheap. Effective. Reliable. And like others say, you cannot hurt them.

    So how much lead gets into the dog or marshmellow. Really can't be good for your health to eat them. So have you tried cooking Shisc-a-bob that way.
