    He contacted me about this issue and I told him I was able to stop by and take a look at it. A Garand is not too hard to take apart and put back together. I did not hear back from him so I hope he got it back together ok.

    OK, for those of you that are not a member of the Garand Collectors Association, join up at:

    thegca.org

    If you own the mighty M1 you should be a member. If you even think that you want an M1, join up. It will even qualify you with the CMP if you want to order a rifle, ammo or bayonet. The people at the GCA are amazing and true M1 authorities, if there is anything you want or need to know, they have the info.

    The M1 Garand is and have always been my very favorite rifle beginning with being issued one in Basic at Camp Chaffee, Arkansas in 1955. I do belong to the Garand Collectors Association. They put out a great quarterly publication for their members......

    He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust. ~ Thomas Aquinas

    I just re-upped last month for 2020. You NEED to do so.

    I’m in my early thirties and while all my friends are all about their AR15s... I love my M1 Garand. The only other gun I like more is probably my M1 Carbine. I have a Springfield M1 Garand from the CMP and a GM Inland M1 Carbine.

    BTW does anybody else think an M1 Carbine would be an excellent survival / Bug out SHTF gun? It’s so much lighter and handier than my AR.
