    get a .22LR first. If you have only been shooting 5 times, you REALLY don't want to jump right into calibers like .303 brit, .30-06, 7.62x54R, or 8mm Mauser.

    If you want to start off cheap Big 5 has the 91/30 on sale right now for $90, not sure if its the best rifle to learn on though. I think they also occasionally carry Enfields and Mausers though. I dont know of any dealers out by you but I'm sure there are some listed over on calguns.net (probably your best resource.) You could also look at getting an 03 FFL from the ATF so you can avoid DROS fees if you are looking at getting more than one old rifle.

    Edit - I think Big 5 also has 10/22's on sale right now.

    the OP is only 18, so no C&R. Also, they are selling 10/22s right now, and mosins would be a shitty rifle to learn on IMHO. you would develop a huge flinch, and it would probably turn you off from shooting.

    :doh: I forgot you had to be 21 for an 03. I agree a mosin probably would be bad to learn on but if she's proficient already its something to consider. Although as shes OP, it probably isnt a great rifle for her regardless, all the women I've taken shooting dont like recoil.

    since you can't get an 03, looks like pawnshops for you, or gunbroker and pay the transfer fee to an 01 FFL.

    the big five in pasadena on colorado and rosemead has had enfields before. If you want a cheap old rifle to learn on go to Gunrunners on huntington and Mt olive.
