Hi All. By way of introduction, I live on one of the islands in WA state and over the years have done a fair amount of shooting and collecting. As a kid I competed with .22's at 50 feet. As an adult I was introduced to the CMP (then DCM) Garand purchase program and ultimately purchased a CMP M1. A Springfield. The process of the purchase involved firing a borrowed weapon in a match atmosphere. I became interested in NRA Hi Power competition; purchased a second hand M1A National Match rifle and competed for several years in the Sacramento area - Ah, there's nothing like the feeling of wearing a Creedmoor shooting coat on a 100 degree day in Sacramento! But a shooting coat is the first accessory to buy if you are interested in competing. Some years later, when I retired and moved to Washington I purchased a new M1A Super Match but as I age I have lost interest in competition and content myself with the elusive pastime of putting 10 shots through the same hole. This is the Readers Digest version.

Welcome on board Dr Demento, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again, welcome on board and have yourself a great weekend.
