What would happen if...

they...being the bad guys...stopped importing...dare I say it...Mosin Nagant Rifles? Rifles Shmilflles. What about importing cheap & reliable tuna-can 7.62X54R ammo?

What would we do?

I think as shooters, and gun owners we would have a lot more to worry about before they got down to WWII surplus bolt action rifles, and spam can ammo!

I think that the same question was probably asked about Mauser rifles decades ago. At some point, the supply will run out. Not tomorrow and not next year, but it will come to an end.

"Mitchell's Mosins" doesn't have quite the same disturbing ring to it...

What will we do?
The same thing we did when the 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo dried up.
Kick ourselves in the butt for not stocking up when it was cheap and plentiful.

No, No we can't do that! We spend a little money to convert to 9mm.
