Hell for Leather

Thats the one I voted for, nice picture. That M1 and 1911-A1 could still take out the enemy, just as good as the M4 and M9 can.

Thanks, everyone. I wasn't sure that another photo featuring a milsurp rifle would do well since last month also featured one, and I wasn't feeling too confident after seeing the 40+ other entries. I moved from TX to AZ the day the voting started and didn't get a chance to see how I was doing until the 5th since I had no internet. I don't think anyone was more suprised than I when I saw I was winning. Thanks again for everyone who voted!

BDU's would have made the picture better. I probably would have voted for it then.

I wanted a WWII or Korean War fatigue shirt to lay the Garand and the M1911A1 on, but I don't have one, so I used what I had.
