      Congrats. Even at these high prices, SO many youngsters will be kicking themselves in the ass for not getting a Garand now.

                          It certainly doesn't feel like any other rifle I've held before, and I really like that. Its chunky, its got some heft.
                          I also like the obvious wear and tear on the stock, its been around the block, that's exactly the 'character' I was looking for from the CMP.
                          First of many hopefully.

                            That's sweet. Definitely has a something about it that a new rifle can't even come close to. Enjoy!
