Got an old Mossberg 42m for Christmas this year. (Found it at a pawn shop and gave it to Mom to give to me) Finally got to the range with it this weekend. I like it a bunch. Had to monkey with the sights quite a bit and there was some "getting to know her time". At the end of the day I was glad that to have "bought" it. The older rifles really interest me. Bought a few C&R items the last couple years. This one fits right in.
