    Hi all,

    I'm learning how to take weapons photos for the pure fun of it. Lesson One for me is a few shots of my H&R M1 Garand. This baby is like most of my rifles and shoots an order of magniture better than I.

    Looks like a nice Garand. I used to shoot NRA High Power competition and started off with a Garand. I got my first DCM Garand for $165.00. I got a second Garand barreled action a few years ago through CMP and spent quite a bit setting it up in .308. New Barnett barrel, NM op rod, bolt, stock, gas cylinder and NM sights. In the end I felt I should have just bought a stripped receiver since I replaced about everything else. Any way, I gave it the full match prep treatment and it shoots magnificently. I can get 10 shots in just under 2" at 200 yards firing from prone with shooting jacket and sling. The .308 is very soft shooting in a Garand.

    H&R or HRA? That pic of the receiver is not clear enough for me to tell.
