Default Hello from Florida

Been lurking for a while absorbing as much info as I can.

I ordered my first M1 Garand a HRA Service grade back in June and just this week finally got an Email offering a switch to a springfield. I accepted, which will make some of you happy, and am now waiting on my rifle to ship. I cant wait for it to get here.

Looking forward to lots of learning on here.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your first Garand! We'll be interested to see what you get (hint: pics).
As I'm sure you've seen, lots of great info and good people here.

What part of Florida? Spent a few years in the Tampa area while stationed at MacDill AFB...Nov - Feb there brought new meaning to Anne Murray's song, "Snowbird!!!"

Welcome and regards,
Rob

Standing by to see what you get!

Default Welcome!

Welcome to the forum.
Spent 20 years in Citrus County (Inverness & Lecanto) but like all Good people from further north, eventually moved back to Tennessee so I could enjoy the season changes again.

Lot's of good stuff here

...and another welcome to the Forums from a fellow Tampa Bay member. I did the same as you, "lurking" (and learning) for a while before I joined. Lots of good information to be found here, and plenty of helpful members willing to share as well.

MolanLabe;

Welcome to the Fantastic Forums. We're glad you've finally joined up after [lurking for a while] . Your gonna love that SA more than you would the HRA, why you say? because it will, according to you, will be your first . My first was also an SA and it is my prized Garand after 50 + years.

As already mentioned, we'd love to see some pics when your able. Eye candy is always a treat around here .
