Hello from Fredericksburg VA

Good afternoon all. New member from the front lines of the 2A fight. I just picked up my first M1A, a Springfield Armory standard with walnut stock and parked barrel. Reminds me of my best friend back at school, that I did just about everything with but actually shoot it.

I'm retired Army (infantry and SF) and work in DC. I shoot at Quantico, Elite in Manassas, Cavalier for 3G, Fredericksburg R&G for USPSA and Phelps when it's open.

Looking forward to getting my new best friend to the range and participating here on the forum.

Thanks all,
Ed


Thanks from stoky

Welcome Ed, and you are on the front lines. Thank you for your service. That's a nice looking rifle and what until the bug bites you and you start to make changes to it, a tweak here and a tweak there.

Oh, I almost forgot Ed, that rifle is naked, it needs a sling!
