    Took My M1 To The Range Today...

    Loaded up 5 or 6 enbloc clips of .308 (38.7gr of IMR4895 pushing the 168gr Hornaday match) headed to the range and had a M1 Blast. Surprised myself with my older eyes...consistently hit the steel plate at 200yds....(on sandbags) LOL...
    Next.....I can see what happens at prone and shooting off knees !!
    It's makes a wonderful day to be able to get a couple of buddies and hit the shooting range !!

    I've gotten mine out to the range just once this year. I'm aching to do it again.

    Doesn't get much better than that; shooting off the M-1 at a range.

    Being left handed I was never much of a fan of the M1 rifle. At Parris Island we qualified with the M14 then at Camp Geiger ITR (Infantry Training Regiment) back to the M1 that were basically shot out or on the verge there of. Near the end of my enlistment 3Rd Bn 8Th Marines at Gitmo trained sailors in the use of the M1 rifle which had been converted to 7.62mm NATO. My CMP M1 was a Winchester square cut (think of the rounded slot in the receiver for the OP rod handle made so to reduce machining time) that was re-barreled by LMR.

    Glad you had a great time at the range, especially with shooting such a fine weapon.

    Do not know about the looking good part Rodney, but both of my M1's make me smile......great rifles and such a joy to shoot.
    The bad part of it is that I do not shoot them enough and that has to change ...
