Well after 26 years the second firearm [first rifle] I ever bought has come back to me. It is a Plainfield M1 carbine I bought [ok my dad bought] with the money I earned working my first real job. I had sold it when I was 18 and need money, anyway I was in the small town I grew up in last week visiting friends and of course show off a S&W 66 I had. And my friend wanted it real bad and said he had a M1 carbine to trade.....and lo and behold it was my old carbine. It had gone though about six people before my buddy bought it a couple years ago. I am happy as all get out to have it back and after cleaning it up took it to the range and it still shoots great.



Sometimes things you love do come back.........

I think I hate you.....

I could be wrong. Certainly wouldn't be the first time........

But I'm pretty sure I'm not

I don't remember anyone from CT hating me before. That might make it official in all 50 states now.

I do remember going AWOL and ending up in a girl's dorm at the Univ of CT back in 1980. IIRC correctly I was there for 3 days. Nice campus.

I shoveled alot of pig crap for that M1 carbine.....first job was working for my mom's farmer friend. First day he handed me a pitchfork and said "son we going to start you at the ground level". Actually he lied........I had to dig about a foot before I hit the ground level.

UZI SMG

second had UZI, SBR krink and AR

It is a cool story though and for some reason a WWII era rifle makes it more poignant.
