    Hey from Ca

    Goal this year to finally obtain an M1. I used one in High School in the California Cadet Corp. Have never forgotten it. I made the waiting list for CMP advanced maintenance class this year. Crossing my fingers. Waiting on my 03 now. I'm in the Fresno area.

    Welcome to the forum. Have fun if you finally get picked for the class. If you want a garand sooner, you can order one from cmp now and get it in a couple of weeks.

        Welcome in from 29 Palms!
        I was also in the California Cadet Corps '83-'86, Sergeant First Class. We had 1903 Springfields for drill and Ceremony but the M1 Was my Commandant's favorite rifle.

          To show you how much things have changed we even had a .22 rifle team and a rifle range on the school grounds.

            That's cool, we also had a .22 rifle team but they went to the local range. Our Commandant used to bring real guns in a couple times a year to teach proper handling and safety, and obviously the 1903s were in a rack in the classroom.

                Well , I finally got tired of waiting on the 03 FFL and a nice H&R came up. All H&R even the stock except for the trigger group. Serial number says 1954 which make it 1 year younger than me. Came with the CMP case and paperwork. Going to shoot it tomorrow. Handloading today.

                    Range report. I used a standard recipe from Lymans 49th. Two rounds to sight in at 25, two clicks down at 100 and the rest like I was using a scope. The gun was just a joy to shoot.

                      1967 what a different time. Height of cold war and 5 yrs after Cuban Missile Crisis. High School ROTC, Civil Defense, and the draft. I miss the 60s.
