Default Noobe out of Central Texas

I'm new to the forum as a registered user and I've been throughout the forum learning about the M-1 for some time now.

I'm primarily interested in the M-1, although my dad had a 30/40 Krag that he used as a hunting rifle, I'm more interested in the weapon he used in the USMC, M-1.

I've shot and qualified on my share of weapons including M-16, M-60, M-79, M148/203, M-15 and M-9.

I'm also interested in long-range target shooting, hotrods.

I'm a retired E-7 out of the Air Force, served 22 years. Still working, we're located in Austin, Texas.

Default Howdy!

Hello, from North Texas (Grapevine, up I-35)! Welcome to the forums.

I am primarily interested in M1 Carbines, but I have a couple of Garands as well. These forums are a GREAT place to learn, have a few laughs, and maybe swap some parts. Watch the 'Ask Each Other' forum, the 'M1 Garand' forum, and the 'Marketplace' forum (maybe the M1 Garand sub-forum). You can get daily emails (around midnight) of all the updates from the previous day.

So, welcome and good reading!

Welcome aboard. I'm from Shreveport, but my brother lives in the New Braunfels area, so I've spent a lot of time down there.

Welcome to the forum...also retired AF (recently), and just a shot down I-35 in San Antonio (though travelling out east right now).
Congrats on your service and the retirement!
From your weapon quals, CCT, SF or similar AFSC?

Any intent to buy a Garand?
Good time to get one from the CMP as they opened up orders again, as previously mentioned.
And John mentions some good info, and areas of the forum to frequent.

Welcome and regards,
