I've been lurking for a while and plan to get a rifle soon. I'm a vet but the rifle that goes "boing" just doesn't compare to the "ping" from an M1. I hope to enter a Garand match this summer and can't wait to learn more.

Fiasco, Your right about the rifle that go's "ping" the others just don't compare. Welcome and good luck with your first M1. Make sure you post the pictures when you get it. Eddie

Where in Minnesota? I live in the North metro and there are 6 clubs within 2.5 hours of me. Duluth, Harris, Elk River, Minnetonka, Eau Clair and Red Wing. I think all of those clubs have at least one Garand match a year. Plenty of oppertunities to stretch out the legs of your new rifle.

Welcome from yet another Minnesotan! I live in Blaine just as Tom does, perhaps we need to plan a little meet and greet at a range sometime, get all of those M1's out in force!

Greeting from another Minnesotan I'm a bit farther North than you guys. Enjoy your garand, but be warned you can't have only one. Also this forum is addicting itself, you end up checking stuff day and night.

Welcome - the Oakdale Gun Club has a Military Gas Gun match every month in the summer. It is a great place to shoot! They are also a CMP affiliate club.

I just realized I can't spell Minnesota.

I live in the northwest metro. I was looking at the Elk River Sportsman's Club. Looks like a fine club. I usually go to Bill's in Robbinsdale or Del Tone but 25m doesn't appeal to me and Del Tone is quite far from home. I'm already eyeballing two different rifles. I almost want one of each grade and mfg. I hate to be greedy though.
