I have been wanting an M1A for 30 years since i got out of the Marines. So within a month i get talked into shooting a competition, similar to the old Marine Corps qualification round. Haven't shot a rifle since leaving the Marines. 8 sighters to figure out a sight at 200 yards, then the competition begins. Shoots different from the M16A1/A2. But was able to shoot 70% max score with iron sights eirh a standard rifle. Now the competition bug has returned again. This is going to fun.
