    The M1 is definitely on my list. They are great rifles and a huge part of world history.

    When I was 13, a US Air Force drill team held a very small show at a local mall that was almost unadvertised, but luckily my mom saw a notice and took me there as a surprise. It was great watching them twirl bayonet-tipped M1s past each others heads and as the finale they all fired a blank cartridge simultaneously.

    Good video, thanks for posting.

    The Garand is to the soldier like the B-17 is to the pilot..............both true workhorses.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    A hoot to shoot but I don't like the recoil and M1 thumb - I know, call me a sissy!

    Love mine I got a John C Garand match legal brand new Krieger single point cut barrel shoots better then my ability.
    Also got a real WWII M1D built in third week of January 1943. They are fun rifles and there is nothing else like them.
    I wish there was more hours in the day to shoot them

    If you ever find yourselve in Wisconsin, I can take you out to our range and show you how to run a Garand. You will not get the Garand Thumb or have a recoil issue. You just need to get a few pointers and send a couple hundred rounds down range and you will no longer be a "sissy" Then a call into the CMP would be in order!

    Great gun. My favorite when I just want to shoot something big and classic. And amazingly accurate in the right hands (not mine).
