I promised my youngest son an M-1 Garand as a graduation present when he started back to school after getting out of the Marine Corps. He's graduated, has a job in Colorado, and came home this week to visit.
I delivered on my promise.
This rifle was made in October 1944. No way to know if it was used in WWII or Korea, but it's a piece of history still the same.
It's nice that I am still a better shot.
