Default Looking for first Garand

Selling a couple handguns currently to fund my first Garand before supply dries up.

From what I have seen it seems that the SG rifles are starting to get slim.

I initially thought I would drive out there(just over 5 hours away) but the only time I could go would be on a Saturday and I would have to do it in one day. I really don't wanna take the chance that I drive out there and they are out of SG or the only ones left aren't worth buying.

I'm starting to think my best bet is mail order....what do you guys think?

Thanks
Paul

A better bet might be to have Magna hand pick one for you at the South Store:

1911pauly, Call Friday afternoon out at the N.S. and ask for the sales clerks.They will tell you what they will have in SG's for Sat. Rather it would be worth the trip or not. I 'm 5and a 1/2 hrs from the store. I leave around 1 in the morning and get there around 6:30 am. I take a little snooze for about an hr till one of the guys come around 7:30 and then I go in and set in the Warehouse untill the store opens at 8:30. Usually I'm back on the road by 11:00 am heading home. Take two 5 hr energy shots. One for going out and one for coming back. I do it all the time. Take one of your friends with you to ride shotgun. Believe me, it's fun to pick your own rifle and it's worth the trip!!!!!

The way I've done it that works out well is priceline a room about 45 min away can usually get one for 20bucks and i leave at 8pm after i get home from work and have dinner and then head out.

Where are you from. I'm considering another trip soon and my gas is free.

Western suburbs of Chicago and you are wondering if you should make a trip? I came from central MN for a trip and scored a very nice SG Winchester 13 and what I really went for, a S/A service grade with a serial number that corresponded to when my Dad went into the army in 1943. That is cool stuff. Even if you don't find what you are looking for I know you will be glad you went.

I'm also western suburbs, back in October my friend and I left about 0415 missing the morning traffic, spent 2 hours at the NS, then drove back and were home by 5, and we didn't go any more than 5 mph over at any point. To get what you want go an hour earlier and be one of the first in the store.
