You know how it goes, something catches your eye, you look...and look and next thing you know you gotta have one.
I understand there isn't a surplus of Vepr 54r rifles at this time for whatever reason. I've seen some on GB but not anywhere else for the most part. I see there are "I Want One" threads in this sub forum.
Are these at an end as far as importation?
Is it a "bite the bullet and pay the price" situation?
Do I just need to get past the "cheap ammo" thing and get a .308?
Enlighten me (if you don't mind).
Oh, and I have a Mosin already.

Our right to keep and bear arms - personally - is the essential element of political liberty, without which we would stand as mere slaves of any current administration, as do most of the people in the world today. We treasure our right to be armed, not only as defense against tyrants, but also as defense against evil men acting alone. Our right to defend ourselves against felons by force of arms protects not only our liberty but also - and this is often overlooked - our dignity. Dignity is a word not often used in the Age of the Wimp, for by definition a wimp has no dignity. But dignity remains not only desirable but essential to persons of consequence. This concept is rejected by the socialist, who feels that dignity resides solely in the state. But we Americans are not socialists (at least most of us are not) and we prize our unique status in world society.
