...and my shoulder is in pain from the experience.
Sunday evening I decided that I would take my M1 Garand and my 1903-A3 out to the range Monday morning to allow them to play for a little while.
Even though they are both a little older than I am, they still did very well. The 03-A3 ws made in 1943 and the Garand was made in 1944 and both are still going strong.
I fired them both at 100 yards and at 200 yards and here is the results. The first picture is of the M1 target and the other one is the 1903-A3 target. The 03-A3 can still outshoot the M1. I some how deleted the picture of the 200 yard target but all shots were at about the 7:00 position on a siloutte target (but still in the black).
I thought these were pretty fair for an old man using open sights at a target that he could hardly see!!
