    Thanks, I am not sure why my last purchases have been replicas of 19th century tech. I am not a Cowboy Action shooter, though I am 'parently set up to do so. I have the pictured Thunderer, a Model P 5.5", also in .45 Colt, and a Rossi '92 in the aforementioned .45. I believe my coach gun would be disqualified, as it is 20 ga instead of 12.. I did have an Uberti in .357, but gave it to my pops for Xmas. On the more modern side, I do have ye olde M1 Garand, paired with a Colt's Government, 2011 manufacture, but still. On the even more modern, S&W M&P 15T, and a Glock 19. One day I will attempt to take some photos with period approximate accessories. Done ramblin', gonna try and get some sleep. Thanks again.

    The top gun is a DPMS Tac-20 in .308 that I picked up the other day. The bottom gun is a Glock compact .45. Hopefully going to shoot the DPMS for the first time tomorrow.

    Ordered an M1 Garand a couple of weeks ago. I've always wanted one but couldn't justify the purchase. Well, in this environment, I'm afraid CMP will get shut down, so I figured now or never. Can't wait to get it.

    I ordered both Greek and Hornady ammo. Any opinions on them? Why were the Greeks making M1 ammo anyway?

    The Greeks, as well as other US Allies such as South Korea, Israel, and various Latin American countries and other European countries such as Great Britain. All were provided M1 Garands through a Lend-Lease agreement. Most of these countries made their own ammunition and EnBlock loading clips for the rifles as well as several other parts. That is why it is not at all unusual to find assorted foreign head stamps in M1 Garand loading clips that were imported from a variety of countries.

    Depending on the age of the ammunition, who made it and how it was stored it can be a good deal for Garand shooters. Keep in mind that not all 30-06 ammunition is suitable for use in an M1 Garand so ask questions here in the forums and ask questions of the CMP, especially if you ever choose to start loading ammunition for the M1 Garand.

    Enjoy your new rifle.

    Hell, in keeping with this thread I looked at a M1 Garand today and came home with a nice S&W 586 which is a far cry from a M1 Garand. :)

    1955 Chinese Type 53 (Chinese made Mosin M44).

    Amazing rifle. Shoots 1" right at 100 yards with irons, consistently.
    Kicks like a rifle should.

    Found this at a local gun show this weekend for cheap. Yeah, I thought that was strange too. Just couldn't resist. Smith and Wesson 10-5.

    Ruger Speed Six 3" .357 stainless; had to paint the front site with my daughter's bright orange nail polish - not much aftermarket sights for this revolver (and anything that could be tapped/drilled to fit seems to have a very high profile). Love it - shoots great and will be my hunting sidearm (replacing a Glock 30 in that role).

    We got a shipment of Sig rifles in our shop the other day and one of them was a Sig 556 Patrol so I set it aside for myself. The other Sig rifles were M400's and a 716 and they went out on the rack and were gone in matter of hours. We sold them all at pre-panic normal pricing because we don't price gouge at our shop, so I got this baby for $1,088 plus tax! Of course I didn't get my employee discount but I'm not complaining considering these are selling for about twice that on gunbroker!

    Solid used Ruger GP100 (6" bbl) with 100 rds of .357HP and holster for $500. Always wanted a .357 and this one kind of fell in my lap.
