Ss 2/25-2/27?
 
Anybody go?

I called the store early afternoon yesterday, 3 rack grade M1s still in the racks and 2 racks of M1 Specials. More rack grades out today (Friday), it's all they have to put out. Mother Hubbard redux. I was thinking of dropping in on my way home from Florida....nah!

That's more encouraging than I thought it would be. I think we will stop by next Thursday after all.

Rack grade HRA
 
I picked up a pretty nice rack-grade HRA on carbine day as a consolation prize. :D

Came with a nice WWII SA cartouched stock and 53 SA barrel that measured a 2 at the muzzle. Very nice shooter as well. :)

That looks quite nice; I'd be all over it.

You did very well. That's a nice HRA.

Glad you were successful. I went last July and only cause business brought be to Huntsville. I've been going to the store since they opened in 2006 or so. From my experience and the dismal reports, I don't see how they can justify the expense of keeping the South Store open. I'm very thankful I got to experience the stores at their prime.

Ditto that. I know it's been said a thousand times before, but I wish I had the foresight to load up on the Greek Air Force returns when they were available, both service grades and correct grades. I got a few, wish I had more.

Anyone know if the specials were 308 or 30-06 and the serial number ranges/manufacture?

I am glad i didn't try to visit today. From a west coaster, visiting mecca has always been fun, but if pickings are this slim, it's just a bit too hard to justify to make a side trip.
