Big 5 corporate is not very pro gun and is more worried about PC than rights. Hence the pulling of .223 AR platform rifles and the mandate that .22lr "assault" looking rifles are pulled from display. Not to mention the reduction in firearms placed in the newspaper ads.

BUT the main problem is the DC. Right now Big 5 stores are having trouble getting anything in. Many trucks come with 0 boxes of 9mm, 22lr, or .223. Some trucks have only 3 guns as opposed to pre newtown when 10+ might be the regular. Whether this is the supply or due to the higher ups is unknown.

Mosins are not any different than any of the other firearms and the quantities and frequency of their shipments have drastically been reduced.

Best bet is to hop on your local stores firearm waiting list, but be prepared to wait as some stores are still trying to service customers from December.

The rifle is not a proper sniper, every single one I have inspected has a repo scope on it.
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 – 1873)
