In today's mail call.....

10 Bragging points to the first person who names it for what it is.

I expect to use it a few weeks from now, one or another.

2 round Garand En-Bloc for match shooting. Or really busted up binoculars, I'm not sure ;).

PING! You win the points JFT.

I think I have everything I need now to shoot the Garand in an upcoming match... except for having never shot the rifle of course.

I see no reason that should stop me.

Go to:
Buy yourself some Greek HXP ammo
Then go zero your new baby. Then go out and compete!

Guess I need to get set up with CMP!

Peter said...

To modify an old saying, does that make you "a clip off the old (en-)bloc"?


WV - "carimp" - if you reload for your Garand, make sure you put a good carimp on the rounds.

Day late and dollar short... 2 round, they also make five rounders FYI!

Hat Trick said...

To avoid "M1 Thumb" have someone show you how to close the bolt without getting your thumb pinched.

You have to push down on the clip a little with your thumb to release the bolt while you block the bolt handle with the heel of your hand. If done right it should kick your hand and thumb clear as the bolt goes forward.
