      Actually I have to agree with him some.

      Hard to argue with much of that.

      I don’t agree with everything he says, but on a whole I’d say he is worth taking the time to watch. Entertaining if nothing else, and a easy way to see guns in action that I will never be able to buy.

      I was a little bit hating him on his comments on Mosin’s in overrated guns. But I felt like mine might be better than average.

      The Mosin in particular with its cock on open takes some learning. Bolt seems to like being opened with a snap. Then a back flick, forward flick and down and you are ready.

      At the range I have been holding the gun with my right hand, elbow, using my left hand across the action to get enough snap on it. Seems to work fairly well. But my buddy has been struggling.

      I just saw the top 5 overrated guns today. The list is kind of hard to argue with. Shame he didn’t have any pistols on the list.

      I didn’t really realize the top 5 guns were held in all that high of regard. I understand how a lot of 18-year-olds may think a Mosin-Nagant is cool because it is all they can afford, but I don’t really know anyone that thinks they are the amazing. He also greatly over-generalizes how all Mosin-Nagants are poorly made. Some pre-war ones were finished very well and were quite smooth, just like some of the latest K98’s were garbage, although he refers to them as being “perfect.” He also refers to many things as flaws that were intentional, like the separate bolt head (something still used today, btw) and the clips being removed manually (Russian soldiers have always been expected to keep up with their equipment). There’s more than ample proof that either gun can be accurate, and just because some blow-hards at the range can’t shoot well (with a war-made rifle, worn out, and shooting machine-gun surplus ammo) doesn’t prove anything. I used a 91/30 two or three times in the Knob Creek competition (score based on time and accuracy), and no one with any flavor of Mauser (unless you count the ’03a3 as a Mauser action) ever ranked higher than I did (my best was third or fourth place). I would say that both designs did their job adequately, but if I had to call one over-rated, it would be the Mauser. Not because it is a bad design, but because so many people worship it as the pinnacle of perfection. I think most people see the Mosin-Nagant as a tool, which it is. But I guess I’m just butt-hurt:rolleyes:.

      They forgot a few –
      Winchester made the Rifle for the American Rifleman – Now we are just a Marketing Name.
      Remington – We used to be Great
