Default Hello from Mass

Greetings All!

Just got my first M1 garand last week. RM1SPECIAL SA#1665671 June 43'
It's more beautiful than I hoped for. I requested a SA less than #3,300,000
and was so happy. My father served in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France, and Germany with the Thunderbirds-45th Infantry Division, 180th Infantry Regiment. Purple Heart recipient, so I am proud to have this rifle!

Welcome to all of our new friends. If it's your first garand, carbine or 1911. I bet it won't be your last. My wife thinks I got a little carried away after my first Garand. We differ on some things...

Welcome. I'm from up the road in Hollis. I imagine it's a thrill to own the rifle your Dad depended on; heck the entire country depended on.

Truth. Got my first in November and another earlier this month. Plotting a third now but need to be stealthy about it.
