I had a Mini 14 and LOVED IT!

I kept my CAR-15 for 1 month, just no fun, it had to go.

I have had my eyes on my brother's M-1 Garand for years but the only way he'll give it up is after the death grip has gone.

I have a Mini-30 and I really love it. My little brother has a Mini-14. That's why I call him my little bro!

I picked up my Garand at a gunshow years ago before the price went skyrocketing. It's an arsenal assembled mismatch and not a re-import but I only paid $399! It's a nice rifle. But for comfort and just downright shootability, I like my 30 carbine.

I have a CAR and an SKS as well.

You can get an M1 Garand from ODCMP and match ammo to.

For a fraction of the cost of either your Mini 14 or CAR-15, you can buy a WW2 vintage M1 Garand straight from the US gubbermint through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Prices start at just $295.

Imagine that! A gubbermint program that actually benefits American shooters and promotes shooting!

Search out Civilian Marksmanship Program for the details.
