My next new toy...


Springfield Armory, National Match grade M1A... 11.4 pounds of 7.62mm heaven...
And will shoot 1/2" MOA at 500 meters.

I could see the drool running down my DH's neck now. Like the new RT Mobile. And I don't get paid to work my ass off, much less sleep- the green monster has risen!

Happy Belated Birthday.

My fiance would get along very well with you. He is constantly looking to buy new ones or accessories for them.

Now he is trying to convince me that I need to learn how to handle a gun before I move to his country house. There is nothing that could convince me of that. No thank you.

What's MOA? Where I'm from that's the Mall of America. You're not supposed to bring firearms in there.

Looks like fun. Happy Birthday RT.

I've wanted one for years RT...I'm very proud for you. I completely understand the need!

Somehow with the Garand I have, I just can't pull the triger to get an M1A.

M1a is like a souped up Garand, right? A buddy of mine in high school had two of those. He drug them out of a case one day when his dad wasn't around. His dad would have BEAT HIS ASS. I see them at gun shows all the time. Good luck with it.

I'd rather get the standard model since it's 2 pounds lighter and $300 cheaper.

MOA = minute of angle

I think
