Gunslinger,

Rebarrel only if it needs it.

Go to .308 cuz' the Milsurp ammo is easier to find and cheaper than milsurp 30-06.

Garands forever

This topic was discussed over on Ruger Forum a few weeks back, and I learned a lot of good stuff. Here is the link:

One of the only shooting clubs in my area is the Fort White Gun Club. Membership is 35 bucks a year (mostly so they can have the firing range), but the Danish Garands are well worth it.

Garand Collectors Assn. $25/year and you can download the app online. www.garandcollector.org IIRC....

They send a list to the CMP every two weeks showing membership....

My personal advice is to find a local CMP-affiliated club, and a range that holds some matches. Then, when you get the thing, shoot in those matches as often as possible. They are fun, good at developing or improving form and every match I've ever shot has been attended by friendly interesting people.

Think about it. You get a cool old rifle, the chance to shoot it a lot, and the opportunity to hang out with people like you. How can it get any better!
