Aloha From Hawaii!

Aloha All!

I've been wanting an M1A for the longest time (over 15 years), but for what ever reason, I was never able to pick one up. I finally picked one up last week. It might not have been the exact configuration that I wanted it, but it was close enough!

I was able to pick up a Springfield Armory M1A Loaded with Composite Stock. I would have liked to have had a Stainless Barrel, but down here, the composites are not too common. I figured I should jump on the opportunity.

Now that I've done this, I'm here to learn more about the rifle and from your collective expertise!

Mahalo (Thanks in Hawaiian)!

Oh yeah, Merry Turkey Day to you and yours!

Thanks from budster

Welcome from another Honolulu based soul. Gotta love it out here though I do wish it were a bit more gun oriented!

Scutter, if I had to guess, it'd probably be coco head. There's a public range out there that I've heard good things about though I've yet to get over there yet since I just moved here. It's East of Waikiki

Howdy and welcome aboard the M14 forum.

I well remember my liberty nights down on Hotel Street when we'd stop at Pearl going and coming from the Nam.
