Re: when and where was your !st encounter with the m1 garand
Last October. I purchased a beautiful springfield from GDMoody here for 500 bucks. Best money ive ever spent on a rifle of any kind. And i have 'stoopid' money invested in some of my Custom LR rifles.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
