Battle of the battle rifles!

Been wanting to say I really like the articles Garry James has been being doing on opposing battle rifles in G&A the last several issues. Since my hunting days are seemingly over , I've been considering selling and or trading most of my hunting rifles and shotguns and acquiring more historical military arms.

    Those are good articles. You could just send those guns to me for proper disposal.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    I have a soft spot from them too ... 1 03A3, 2 M1 Garands, 1 M1 Carbine and 1 Remington Rand 1911. I'd like to have add another couple others but just haven't come across the right ones at the right price.

    Since I retired, I became interested in collecting/shooting old military guns. So far I've got an '03 Springfield, Mk1#III Enfield, Type 99 Arisaka 7.7, K-31, K-98, '09 Argentine, M-38 Carcano. The Enfield and Arisaka are my favorites so far. Plus the Colt New Service in .455. I'm amazed at how well these guns are built and function and how accurate they are, ( Carcano NOT included) considering I never shot open sights a lot.
