Hello from Central Cali

I've been eyeing M1A's for years - finally broke down and purchased my first.
Buddies have been after me to buy an AR15 but, I've never been fond of the .223 except as a varmint round.
I packed an M14 during Basic training, at Ft.Ord, and for my first 6 weeks in RVN. When I was issued an M16 I was very hesitant concerning the 5.56 round.
Glad to be here, I know I've got a bunch to relearn.

Welcome on board CH47gunner, 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 weekend, I lived on a farm in Morgan Hill neighbor. Thank you for your service to our country, America is better off because of you.
