Re: Finally got my first Garand!

Congrats! On your new rifle. "It felt like it was free" , sounds like my wife buying something on sale and saying she saved money and a sure sign of the start of an addiction. I'll bet you had a huge involuntary grin the first time you pulled the trigger.

Re: WHEEL WEIGHTS

I just thought I'd throw this out there. I don't cast bullets but, I've been a mechanic 40 plus years and every time I lift a car battery I wonder how much work it would take to use the lead from them to make bullets. I figure you could neutralize the acid with baking soda and I know the cases brake...

Re: Sight Pictures for the M1 Garand

Thanks les123, makes sense now. I've read lots of things talking about using different sight pictures but not saying anything about changing sight adjustment.

Re: Sight Pictures for the M1 Garand

Re: 1961 East German Makarov

Get that gun to the range and you'll really fall in love. I have a Bulgarian model and it's my favorite shooter. People at my club ( including me ) are always impressed how far I progress in our weekend competitions. I actually came in first in a head to head falling plate shoot, against all kinds o...
