I'm getting a new toy

My uncle just bought a few M1 Garands and is saving me one.

I'll save you all the trouble with this

:worthless

But I'll make up for it with one I was checking out that was for sale over at this country gun club.

Pretty nice, they wanted 800+ for it, the one I'm getting my uncle is charging me $460

Re: I'm getting a new toy

The M1 Garand has been a gun I've always wanted. The history behind it alone is probably the main purpose I wanted the gun. It can shoot about 1200 yards, pretty accurate, and it fits right in my hands.

I'm getting it for collectors purposes, the thrill of actually getting to shoot an M1, and in case of a Zombie attack.

Re: I'm getting a new toy

lol I highly recommend everyone to fire an M1 Garand at least once before they die. It's an awesome gun.

Re: I'm getting a new toy

I think it would be pretty badass if I dressed up all like a WWII infantry rifleman for Memorial Day and take the Garand to the shooting range.

what do you all think?

Re: I'm getting a new toy

Alright, I went to my Uncle's place and we took the gun apart finding some interesting **** with the gun.

It's got a written inspection sticker on the inside of the wood where the barrel sits. It's pretty interesting, everything matches up with the gun and the wood. Springfield Armory, etc. etc. I'll probably get more information when I talk to my other Cousin who does background information on all the guns.

He found out the year of his gun, the inspector's name who looked over the gun, and where it was used.

So I'm going to assume my gun was used in Greece (SPARTA!!!!!!!!! TO KILL US SOME PERSIANS) because of the language that's on the sticker note that's on the inside.

The note had the year 1973 written on it, so I'm assuming it was fixed up and inspected by whomever put that sticker there. The gun's wood has also been fixed, using metal bars to keep the wood from cracking further.

I'm in the process of cleaning all the wood from grease, dirt, and steaming it to undo some of the nasty dents in it.

More information soon, and results will follow shortly, I can't post pics of the gun because we had to leave the barrel and the main heart of the gun with this guy at a Gun Shop to keep for 10 days before I can get it. California law bull****.. anyway, so yeah.
