I got an early Christmas present, a Colt M4 and this prompted my nephew to pick one up as well. Both from Walmart @ 1100 usd or so. Just beat the rush by a few days.
I also picked up 24 pounds or powder and 10,00 primers. (5,000 LRM and 5,000 SRM)
More M1 Garands are on the menu and HXP Ball.
Here is the Colt with a pig and a deer
