    Who actually uses their Garand?

    In our previous home I had been charged by bear and moose. I carried a Garand loaded with 180gr softpoint handloads ready for a sudden shot. (It was also good arm exercise.) A local ordinance prohibited any construction of a shooting range, so I shot down an old logging road into a natural backstop. I would hang a tarp from low branches to catch the empties. Recovered all but a few. The rifle balances nicely and carries well even with the weight, and the issue sights worked well for plinking, targets, hunting and sudden close-in "surprises". Still use a Garand in our new location.
    The thief may possess something he stole, but he does not own it.
    The owner has a right to take his property back from the thief.

    In Pa semi auto rifles are not allowed for deer or bear hunting. Used to shoot CMP matches. Matches were a lot of fun.

        I live in PA and self loaders have limitations but lots of rounds over the years in matches and range work.

          Going to the range tomorrow to ladder test a Garand in 7.62. I screwed up the last test. Shoot them all the time.

              Use the M1 rifle in the field, loaded w/ Remington 168 gr. TSX and GarandGear Ported Gas Plug, as a camp and woods hunting rifle, for deer and hogs.

                  I use mine in competition. Too difficult to use a bolt gun left-handed in the rapid fire strings.
