    Hello from an okie

    Hello all,

    I'm new to this forum. I'm from Oklahoma I'm a service member who loves the M1 garand. My garanditis didn't set in at first. I got my first one last May. I didn't know much at all about them then. Since I have learned a ton. My Garanditis set in once I discovered the CMP forum. Since then I have bought three more. I have one iof each US manufacture. I am in the process of getting another one. A super nice LEAD. I have also placed a WTB navy barreled receiver with hopes to build one of those. So I would say I have a good case of Garanditis and I don't care. My wife and I just had our first child. A handsome little man. I hope to pass on my Garanditis to him. Sorry for the long winded story. Nice to meet you all.

    Best regards
    Casey

      Thanks Brian,

      I do not plan on going anywhere. I know a few of the guys on here from the CMP. I look forward to learning more and more. So far all my knowledge comes from books or other guys I have talked to. Unfortunately I have not gotten my hands on any known original known rifles which I hear is where a lot of parts knowledge is learned. But I hope to get there one day.Know if I could only afford to rebuild my gas trap.

          Welcome to the forum, Casey. I was starting to wonder if you were going to join us... Very nice pickup on the Navy MK 2 Mod 1 barreled receiver. She's a beauty and pics are a must when you get her done.tu1>

          Talk to ya' later,

            Thanks Dave,

            I'll be in touch with you about some parts. I have also been talking to Brian about parts. I don't need a whole lot. I can't wait to get her done and take some pictures.
