Gun Thought of the Day

If you viewed the preview of Clint Eastwood's upcoming movie Gran Torino you probably noticed the prominent presence of an M1 Garand in the film. Given Eastwood's record of popularizing guns in the past (.44 Magnum S&W), it might be a good idea to acquire a few Garands in case the movie becomes a huge hit and demand skyrockets. It's not as if anyone is currently manufacturing Garands, after all.

General George S. Patton: "In my opinion, the M1 Rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised."

I'll concur, it is indeed a beautiful thing that delivers such incomparable wrath and vengeance upon thine enemies.

I'll probably try to acquire an M1 next year, if Obama doesn't order them all melted down and beaten into ploughshares. The CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) sells them for a reasonable price, but you have to jump through a number of hoops first.
