I guess I didn’t mean “investment” to imply I would make money. More that I will have been glad to have bought parts, etc. as they may not be as available.

Ahhh yeah. I understood what you meant.

I'm just saying that we might find a surplus of this stuff when the social connection to the history disappears. How many of our peers are shopping for this stuff? What happens when the people who have bought their full Garand allocation every year for a couple of decades pass on? High supply and low demand might make all of this look pretty cheap 20 years from now.

Hello All,

I hope you fellows are correct and I'm in error! I have three grandsons that were shooters in their early and late teens. Two are Eagle Scouts. I bought a total of five 03 and 03 A3's one for each of our sons. The three boys now all over 21 now!
Sadly, if it's not a video game, girls or Rock concert they have little interest
Heck! They would not even think to wash their own cars!
I have three Garand's too! Thinking they will be sold off and the wife & I will go on a nice trip! The grandsons are sadly disconnected from what many of us think is real life!

Best wish's to all of you,
broom

I actually think it's going to be really sad if I'm right because the community is vibrant, interesting, knowledgeable, and helpful as is. Sadly, I've only met one forum member younger than me in person. It's going to get pretty quiet if things continue as they are. =(
