I was one of the lucky ones who received one of the recent M1 Carbines.

I've been fascinated with the carbine for a long time and old enough to remember them for sale at the local hardware store for around $20. I've wanted one for a very long time but was never aware of the CMP. Both of those problems have been resolved.

I hope to learn more about the carbines as well as the Garand (which I have on order).

Cheers.

Welcome aboard. You will really enjoy the carbine. Nice small firearms. When I was in the Navy I was able to shoot many thousand rounds thru some we had in the ships armory. Loved it. Hope the luck of the draw yields you a nice Garand. You may want to check into purchasing one of the 308's. You must be a old coot like myself if you remember the days when all these military pieces were plentiful and relatively inexpensive. I can remember when 20 bucks was a lot of money.

Old coot sounds about right. I was about 8 or 9 and I used to admire them on a regular basis. Once I was legal age, I just the military and moved around a lot and interest was put on the back burner.

I'm already talking about getting a .308 Garand so I appreciate the suggestion!
