Default Hello from Minnesota!

Hey everyone, Curt from MN. I purchased a 2.2 million M1 garand from an auction close to where I live back in September of '16. (It bit me hard) From there started the online research about it and eventually led me to the CMP. While reading info and posts here I took to heart a quote another member usually has...it was "buy now, worry later" and I'm glad I followed the advice. As everyone knows...ya can't have just one so...I started my application for 2 field grades at the beginning of the year. After 3 months of going through nearly every post and picture(picking up a couple of bayonets to make sure address was right I got the e mail for upgrade to service. It was tough but I accepted and couldn't be happier. Melissa and the outstanding people at CMP sent me two fine rifles. A 3.7 SA with original barrel and SA rebuild in '64 and a 4.66 HRA with original barrel also! You'll have to wait a bit for pics til my son has time to help me out. I just wanted to introduce myself an give a huge THANKS to the CMP!!! My only regret was not knowing about CMP sooner so I could've picked up a carbine .
