Awesome! But that gun kicks like a mule! It almost threw out my shoulder. haha ok not that bad, but after shooting 3 times in a row with it, my shoulder was pretty sore. I need a pillow to rest up against my shoulder if I am gonna shoot it again. lol

Just need a decelerator or other slip on recoil pad. Any reasonably powerful rifle with solid wood, or worse metal, end of stock is going to make you sore fast.

my buddy has a butt pad on his and it helps tremendously and still looks good on the rifle.

If I didn't end my day shooting my M44 wig a sore bruised shoulder,  then I didn't have fun. There are outings that I put 40rds through it that I had no pain, then there are days I only put 5 through it, and felt like I was hit with a car.

I love Mosins! I once hit a dinner plate at 200 yards with my m39's iron sights. Not bad for a 101 year old rifle!
I have a few guns.

I purchased a rubber buttplate for about $12 that replaces the metal one and helps a TON.  It is way more comfortable to shoot now.

I will have to tell my boyfriend to get one. :)

There's the link to the Mosin's Rubber butpad I bought.  It looks grey in the picture, but it's really more black than that.  It looks like it belongs on the rifle and doesn't look out of place at all.

OK, I will be the one to go out on a limb and point out a few things that trouble me about this video.
First, after the guy shoots the hog he says "That's the first time I ever shot this gun."
Oh, yeah? Do I need to point out how stupid and unsporting it is to hunt with a gun that you have never even sighted in? One of the cardinal rules of hunting is to know how your gun shoots so that you can hopefully make a clean kill. Going hunting with a gun that you have never sighted in is poor sportsmanship, and will in many cases (like this one) result in a wounded animal instead of a clean kill. You might say, "Well, he hit the hog with his first shot, didn't he?" To that I reply that it was probably dumb luck that the rifle had been sighted in by someone else. But he wouldn't know this if he hadn't confirmed the zero before the trip. Did you notice how the hog was still alive and crippled when they got on the scene?
Second, when they arrive at the hog and see that he is still alive, the guy shoots him once with his pistol to put him out of his misery. But the hog is still breathing and moving! Does he shoot him again to finish the job? No!
I love hunting and I'm no bleeding heart when it comes to taking game, especially destructive game like hogs. But failing to follow the most basic rules of fair play and sportsmanship makes us all look bad in front of people who hate guns and hunting to begin with. We don't need to give them any more ammunition.
OK, that's my  $.02 worth, feel free to flame away.

The danger gone, the trouble righted,
  God's forgotten, the soldier slighted.

Agree completely Pistolero. Some folks don't even concern themselves with being humane on hogs as they are pests and to that I cannot respect at all. Any hunting should be done in a humane manner.
