Is it better to pop the latch and release the trigger assy. a bit while storing the Garand and M1A? Would it keep the wood from compressing and loosening up after a few years? I've just been popping the trigger guard on mine while stored, but if it's a waste of time or the wearing of the latch would be magnified I'd quit.

If I remember correctly Scott Duff said in his book that it was a good thing to do.

I looked up woon in the dictionary, and I can't figure out how you get it to work with rest of the gun.

Well, all my stocks are woon so I guess I'll leave em cracked a bit. Thanks.

Yes, for wood stocks store them with the TG unlatched. A good idea is to use a short piece of paracord or a cloth bungy strap to hold the TG in place so it doesn't hit the floor when you remove the rifle from the safe. Don't ask me how I came up with this idea.

I leave the trigger group unlatched on all M1's and M1A's. Trigger group is held in place by a tightly bound cotton sling. HTH
