Hi y'all! New guy from NC

Hi everyone!

I'm John from NC...just joined the forum today (10/01/13). Also just purchased my first M1A-A1 Scout. Bought it used from a local gun dealer so it already was sitting in a Troy MCS stock with a Magpul PRS and MIAD grip. I added a Vortex 1-4x24 on a SSALT mount from SWFA.

Although she's my first M1A/M14, I carried an M14 in 2004 in Iraq. She wasn't as high faluting as this one but she shot pretty good (1.5 MOA) with M118LR. I named her Bunny Foo Foo, hence, my screen name.

I need to name her...any suggestions? I hate just calling her the M1A/M14 Scout rifle.

Does anyone know which magazines are best for them and who has the best deals on them?

I planned on using her to compete in a designated marksman 3 gun match but I can't find anymore info about it. Anyone know of any type matches in the SC/NC/VA area?

I'm looking forward to hearing from y'all!

John aka Brown Eye

Welcome on board BunnyFooFoo, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great week. Thank you for your service to our country, America is better off because of you.

Welcome aboard, Tarheel! Hope you like it here because there's usually a lot of sound advice being given.

I spent three years stationed in Onslow county way back when.

Welcome to the forum. The best Mags for the M14 Are CMI. The Mags that have the springfield armory logo on them are perfect to. CMI Makes them.

I believe the Greenville Gun Club in Greenville, SC holds three gun shoots occasionally through the Carolina Practical Shooting League. Don't know anything about it beyond that though. Welcome!

Yeah man, welcome to the forum from central Illinois.

CMI is the ticket. I have that exact set-up that you have. I have the Troy MCS SASS but I have a Hubble Space.... I mean, Nightforce NXS 3.5-15 on it. There are very few guys on this forum with the Troy because it was a little more expensive and a LOT more heavy than the Sage EBR (valid reasons) so don't get discouraged when people beat you to death that your rig is heavy. For a long time I thought the EBR was kind of Franken-uggo... but now I'm starting to see the appeal. This is a great forum for information and good guys.

Welcome from SoCal! C.M.I. magazines are the best for the M14/M1A.

Little Bunny Foo Foo is a children's poem, involving a rabbit harassing a population of field mice. The rabbit is scolded and eventually punished by a fairy. Like many traditional folk songs, there are multiple versions with differing variations. It is also known under the alternative name Little Rabbit Foo Foo; "Foo Foo" is sometimes spelled as "Fu Fu". The poem is sung to the tune of Down By The Station.
The rhyme is usually sung by an older person to a younger child, using a repetitive tune that reinforces the meter, accompanied by hand gestures. In this mode of transmission, it is a form of tickle play that teaches and reinforces motor skills, often passed as childlore.
One of the more popular versions of the song is as follows:
Little bunny Foo Foo
Went hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said
"Little bunny Foo Foo
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head."
I'll give you 3 chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a goon!"
And the next day...
Little bunny Foo Foo
Went hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said
"Little bunny Foo Foo
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head."
I'll give you 2 more chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a goon!"
And the next day...
Little bunny Foo Foo
Went hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said
"Little bunny Foo Foo
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head."
I'll give you 1 more chance,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a goon!"
And the next day...
Little bunny Foo Foo
Went hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said
"Little bunny Foo Foo
I don't wanna to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head."
I gave you three chances and you didn't behave so.... POOF. She turned him into a Goon.
An alternate version is
"Little Bunny Foo Foo
Hopping through the forest
Scoopin' up the field mice
Bopping em on the head!
Then the Good Fairy came and said:
'Little Bunny Foo Foo
I don't want see you
Scoopin' up the field mice
Bashing'em on the head!
I'll give you 3 chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a goon!"
Some versions were similar, but different:
"Little Rabb Foo Foo
Running through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping them on the head!
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
"Little Rabbit Foo Foo
I don't wanna see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head!
I will give you three chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a Goon!"
One other version goes
"Little Bunny Foo Foo
hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head!
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
"Little Bunny Foo Foo
I don't wanna see you
Scooping up the field mice
And bashing them on the head!
I will give you three chances,
Then POOF you're a Goon.
The result: 'Hare today, Goon tomorrow'
In some versions the Good Fairy turns Little Bunny Foo-foo into a Goose or a Goon.[1] Also, in other versions, little bunny foo-foo reforms and is rewarded by the fairy by not being transmogrified. Also, in some versions the Angel Gabriel is used instead of the Good Fairy, in others the Green Fairy. Some versions replace "I don't wanna see you" with "I don't like your attitude" or "What am I gonna do with you".
One common ending has Little Bunny Foo Foo turned into a Goon, with a pun ending "And the moral of the story is: Hare today, goon tomorrow."
The story is also retold in the book "Lenore, The Cute Dead Girl: Noogies" ([1]) whereby Lenore plays as Little Bunny Foo Foo and gets told to stop bopping field mice on the head by the good fairy. She continues bopping other animals instead, and so the good fairy reappears and reprimands her by saying: "no bopping ANY animals on the head!". Lenore responds by bopping the fairy. The moral of the story was: "be more specific".
The rhyme is retold in illustrated children's books.[2]

many way to intrepid bunny foo foo.... on the Barrett "no bopping ANY animals on the head!" may have a special meaning to some folks.....as in Black Comedy
