My wife decided she would like to deer hunt this year. So I let her use the M1A . I think the deer were scared, I know I was. Shes more dangerous than she appears. They must have seen her holding it cause, nothin showed up. More pics to come.

Your a lucky man! I can't even get my wife to go to the range with me now that she is pulling down a fourty hour week. All I get to do with her is go shoe boot and cloths ect shopping.

How do you like that extra long Harris pod? Looks like it is perfectly desinged for the job!

I look at that picture and can't help but think that you are a lucky man in many ways.

Mine loves to shoot. Her dad was a deputy sheriff and taught all the kids to shoot at an early age...he thought it would help with firearm safety at home...it did, but it only stuck with my wife.
She is a better pistol shot than I am at most any range. She is only 5' tall so she uses short rifles, the M1A (standard setup) is too long for her off the bench.

She looks pretty lethal in that pose. If I were a deer I wouldn't come around either. Happy hunting.

Wife loves to shoot, she is a better shot with a hand gun than I am. A friend has a FA "grease" gun and she love to shoot it also. So you are lucky your wife enjoys shooting.

Another shot from that day. And to 82nd I do like the long harris, it worked perfect, the only down fall its a little clangy (makes a little to much noise).
but most the places we hunted were on a hillside or ridge, so it all worked out good.
Dont know if I like the paint scheme on it yet. Hard to decide after painting so many which one I like the best .
Its A preban with all the good stuff except for the scope thats just a cheapy, mounted on a basset . Looking at maybe ARToptics down the road.
Would post more pics of it, but shes holding it in most of them and its kinda intimidating. (some of the pics are probably not OSHA approved)GI8

I love the look of the vented myself. The stock and handguard is also textured, it has a grippy feal which would make it real hard to pry out of my cold dead hands.

As for the Basset I love that partGI6. Its easy on easy off, stays in place, only thing you dont want to do is loose that handy little tool they send with them.

dig the vented handguard. how do you like that bassitt mount?
Not to hijack the question from OP, I thought I'll share my experience of the Bassett mounts.

The Bassett mounts work as advertised. I have two of the Picatinny high mounts carrying heavy 5.5x22x56 scope with shades. Prior to the introduction of the Picatinny mounts I had a couple of the earlier generations. Even the olders ones work like a charm.

I like the design where you do not have to remove the clip slot. I shoot my M1As in matches, it is a pain to mount a scope for testing and then have to reinstall the clip slot adapter back to be legal in a service rifle match
