My wife and I attended the 2018 Range Run where I purchased 2 Garands and we both ran. Last year the TMP was fully stocked with over 200 Garands because the GCA annual meeting was there at the same time. Will there be an increased stock of rifles at the TMP the day or weekend of the run this year too?

I originally was just going to walk the 5k but after about 75 yards on a whim, I decided to jog.

I remember trying to catch up to you a couple of times but jogging up the first hill was a bad idea for me and it kinda wiped me out. I think I completely abandoned the idea of catching up to you when I saw the vending machine by the maintenance building just after coming out of the hills.

The words I expressed when my detour led me to a machine that would not take my dollars cannot be used here on this forum. Since I never carry coins, I was SOL. I would have happily given a twenty for one of those cold bottles of Powerade right then and there.

At least once the rifle sales room opened a while after the run, I wound up finding 2754135 or maybe it was rob30-06 or bitten that handed and recommended it to me. My memory is fuzzy on how it would up in my hand but it is now in my safe and I quite like it. I just need a GAW stock and a curved uncut SA 9 to finish correcting it.
