Re: M1 Garand (camp fire)

Hit the Cody museum yesterday. What a place! They are remodeling the firearms section so some was still shut off. Not much, as they are almost done. It was awesome to see! Got to the Irma Hotel yesterday too. Cool place.

Re: Lever gun "nostalgia only"?

Well, there's been a whole lotta people and critters laid down by those nostalgic levers over the years. The biggest reason is cause someone had it with them.
Nothing is easier to take along than a lever action carbine. It is an excellent balance of what an all around effective rifle needs to be.
