Default Winter maintenance on a few of my M1s.

Just going over a few M1s this morning. Sleet and freezing rain outside so it's a great time to play.
Photo has one each IHC, SA and Winchester. Will get to the rest later.

I have about a dozen rifles that I need to fill out data sheets for. Everything is snow and ice covered here and it would be a good day to get it done but I'll probably wind up watching the Saints and Pats win their respective games today.

Ron,
Similar problem here in East Tenn today as well. I think I will set up a work table in my living room and do both.
Good way to spend a winter's day.

Don't have that problem here. I haven't watched a football game since 1966 when I had orders to attend in uniform. Not my cup of tea. Got plenty more M1s to work on today though. On to the next safe.

Went through 20 myself last week including a few M14s and carbines.

Do you ever put that Collins gear on the air?

I'm with you there, Art...buncha overpaid commies if you ask me

Having to open another safe to access the rest of your collection is definitely a good problem to have! Stay warm, sir.

Occasionally on 75 am. Used to be on 20 with my dad in fla daily , but since he became a silent key I haven't been on 20.
Great heat source in the Winter months.

7290 and 7295 KHZ are pretty active. Stop by sometime. A group does meet regularly at Noon most weekdays as well.
