Went Ahead and Ordered One of These ............
Yesterday I went to the local Gun Shop and talked to the owner and asked him what it would cost me for him to handle the transfer paperwork on a rifle. It was cheap. He gave me an official form to send to the dealer and away I went to the phone.
It's an old Russian Battle Rifle. A Mosin Nagant M91/30 in 7.62 x 54 caliber.
It was cheap. Less than $100.
Life is good.
