    Default As I was writing this post

    Heres a picture of my nephew and his first Deer, Im assuming a Sitka Blacktail, as thats where he lives.


    So, as this tital indicates,'Aas I was writing this post', he Facebook'd the oldest daughter that he had, indeed, placed the shot on a second one, another Bang-down neckshot.

    That is an M-39 he used with FMJ Russian 1988 Production. He bought that recently, but before that he'd hadLots of practise shooting and careing for an M-44 Mosin I gave him sometime back. The M-39 is a major step up from the harsh little carbine and the M-39 is a pleasure to shoot he tells me, and I agree .......shuks... his interest has taken off in an awsome way, but I guess its in the blood.

    The M-44 is a great carbine, so I figured if I was gonna have a kid start with a gun, his skinny butt would appreciate anything after the M-44. Well, sure as hes my brothers son, he mastered the thing, kept it spotless and the bore shiny, though he was given it used but great bore, now its no different.
    He took the bayonet off, but chopped nothing, and since he now has an M-39, the bayonet went back on for inhouse Cool factor.He has lost no collector nor $$ valueby not chopping an 100$ M-44 into a 50$ sporter, and yet he shot it silly. Then he bought hisself an M-39 ....guess hes going for a collection along the line.....

    I told him as I tell you; The M-39 a Riflemans rifle.

    I leave mine "as issued" and enjoy the utility and history, but mostly the accuracy these rifle are capable of. For 300$ a nearly new one can be fairly easily had. Sometimes I find cheap ones, (when Im lucky)even when they have "Frosted" or "Dark" bores, I clean em up and shoot em, and 9 outta 10 are stioll hitting where the rifleman aims them.

    The only thing missing is a buttrap for a pull through cleaning kit. The pistol grip wooden stock as balance and a feel that is easy to swing and its weight makes for solid control, holding steady is easy, the sights are perfect with the 6'oclock hold , the sling points make for a comfortable carry, the ammo is affordable and is now in a wide variety. The cleaning rod with out a brush will clear out snow, with a brush will brush the bore, swab the chamber, and keep you with a happy barrel while using corrosively primed Milsurp ammo.
    The wooden stock makes for a great balance, and in deep cold, wood will not stick to your hands like plastic, and composite stocks will, as well you can fix most wood problems and even shave dry fire starter from you stock.You can also easily get replacement parts, easily and cheaply. I figure , if he can pack a 9 lb rifle and it performs on the first shot, every time, then its not too heavy.

    Shoot Stranger,.... you are the Ultimate Realist,

    Shaving firestarter off your rifle stock,....
    I'd probably go to bed cold (as in, die trying something else)
    before I could do that,
    it seems anyway, sittin' here next to my stove


    good planning tho

    Pretty Cool, also, the younger ones around you,
