    Default New baby in the house!

    I bought my first M1 Garand today. 1955 Springfield with all original parts. My buddy, who is an avid collector and the guy I bought it from, said it is exactly the way it left the factory, except for the usage and rifle rack marks. I am looking forward to shooting it. Very nice looking rifle.

    I've been wanting to get an M1 for several years and something always comes up, e.g. my 94' S-10 needing repairs. Set the money aside for the rifle and traded in the S-10 for an 07' Nissan Frontier. I guess of I have two new babys at my house.

    When I first saw the heading for the thread, I was going to ask "How did that happen?".

    But then I read the post...I am jealous!! Nice!

    Now Michael, some things shouldn't need explaination to a guy your age.... However, if you are still confused, ask Michele!

    Michael, that is why I put that heading. It's called a teaser. Otherwise I'd be wondering too. Converted to "blanks" a long time ago.
