BT-

Plus one more for the M1.  You can shop around and wait for Springfield to do a gear up promo, I got a loaded version with wood/SS, came with custom case, 2 cleaning kits, 2x 5rd mags, and I added 3x 10 rd, 3x 20rd, leather sling, 1-3x Vortex, scope mount, and I was all in for less than 1500.  In retrospect, I would have skipped the glass, the scope mount makes it almost mandatory to add a high-rise cheek piece to the stock to make it worthwhile.

The weapon is unbelievable solid, reportedly good out to 400yds, but my old eyes are only good to 200-250.  The only mild negatives I could come up with is the weight of the rifle and the cost of ammo- bulk 762 still runs at .75c/rd, storebought 150 grain will be about 1$ a round- I have been spoiled by years of free unlimited ammo, so I only take out the M1 as a treat to myself, like a good scotch or a good steak- not an everyday thing, but something to savor when you have earned it.

Also I would love to try the SOCOM version in poly, but know in my heart that if I got a chance to shoot one, it would end up costing me 1700$ or so.

Bugle- you should buy one. No collection is complete without that. I’ve shot mine a handful of times and it is an incredible piece of history. 

I’ve always wanted to make a display to put over my bar with my Mauser 98K crossed with a Garand (Garand on top). Kind of making a statement with the rifle that saved the world and the rifle that almost destroyed it.

Yea Bugle, that’s also on my list. I had fully auto M-14’s, and Semi’s In military. Basically the same gun. I like the fully tactical ones they sell. Love that gun!

It's the Saint Edge for me, been looking at it since it came out, but could never come up with the coin. It's $1,068 on grab a gun now. With the phone call and tax, be just about the $1200. Got another small bonus from work for working through Covid 19, gonna use that for 500 rounds and a few mags. Hope we actually get the $$$ soon. Stay safe all

I have just about every firearm that I could ever want. Except for one. I'd love a Springfield M1 Garande. I might have to pull the trigger on that soon. Ha!

If I did, I’m looking to get a Springfield Armory HellCat OSP for CC. Highest capacity Micro Conceal carry weapon. OSP means you can put a red dot on it.

Gonna put it in savings to pay for next year's taxes on it.
