Well, I decided on the perfect companion piece for my Springfield MilSpec .45: a M1 Garand! Went and put one on layaway. I'll be shooting it by next week or shortly thereafter.

Enjoy your Garand! Just in case no one else has warned you, Beware Of M1 Thumb!

Kevan,

Have fun! I had one, but liquidated it for some other priorities. And btw, this is one of the best sites on the net for info, parts, etc etc etc on Garands, as well as AR-15, M14 and M1 Carbines.

Hey, I'm doing the reverse: buying a 1911 to compliment my Garand. Good choice.

You know, wouldn't it be interesting to have a WW2 firearms shoot? Competition in each category: M1 Garands, M1 carbines, M1911A1's, and so on. If you're ever up this way, GI-45, bring those weapons and we'll shoot.

Sounds good, Kevan. My family lives in AZ (Tucson), so if I ever find myself up north, I'll let you know.

Well, how about this...

Each year, at the National Championships at Camp Perry Ohio, there is the John C. Garand match. I do not know the exact course of fire, except that M1's and carbines may be used. The range is 200 yards, I believe, and is fired offhand. The winner this year received a match Garand, bedded and with front end modification, with a Kreiger heavy stainless barrel (How's that for first place?)

For the other service rifles, AR15, and M14 (M1A), there are the High Power, and Long Range competitions.

And, for the Service Pistol (M1911A1), there is the National Pistol Championship, the President's Hundred match, and DCM matches, where the Service Pistol is used. Find out about these in detail at:
