Hello M14tfl,

I'm happy to say, as of yesterday afternoon, I am the proud owner of an M1A scout (22" barrel). I've had a love for them since I was a child watching my grandfather shoot his, and promised myself that if I ever got back to the states I'd own one for sure. It feels good in my hands, and it puts a big smile on my face. I'm fortunate to have a friend close to home with a tobacco farm that offers flat, private, and safe ranges in excess of a mile and this coming Sunday I'm going to spend some time getting to know my new friend. My immediate interests are in knowledge of the weapon itself, which is my primary reason for joining, and to replace the synthetic OTB stock. (My wife is 5' tall, and wants desperately to learn to shoot. The nonadjustable stock presents a size issue for her.) So, greetings everyone! I look forward to getting settled in, growing my knowledge, and sharing my experience.

Welcome from another TN shooter. Your in "good company" now. We are currently building a 600 YD range near Paris (TN) and will be holding events next year (I hope). You will have to come on over and shoot with us.

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome, and Im glad to see so many Tennessee shooters here already. Does this site have a big Tenn membership? Might be good fun to share experience on the forums and in person sometime. What forum should I start in to discuss my M1A rifle itself stock options? Happy Thanksgiving folks, I truly do appreciate it.
