It's been a year since the last time I took the trusty M1 to a match. This last weekend I made the trip to the bay and brought my M1 Garand chambered in .308. Couple of (unscientific) observations that stood out this time: 1. The iron sights on this rifle are really quite superb. 2. The trigger is pretty forgiving. 3. Clips retrieved from simply clipping them to a pocket or shirt are waaaay faster than out of a pouch (props to @1KPerDay for that idea). 4. I haven't shot the rifle in just shy of a year and was able to pick it up and make it work. 5. Everybody loves an M1. I found a video editor app for phones (my computer has been dead for some time LOL) so I compiled a video: Anybody else take their M1 out for a walk? If you have an M1, I highly recommend getting it to a multigun match. It's a blast.
