I'll probably be heading over there tomorrow. I've got a new AR to break in.

I should be there pretty early.

I'll be wearing a black hat that says MOLON LABE.

Usually I'll be at the 100yrd range then move down to the pit later.

Will have to meet up next time.

Special thanks to the guy from Chicago who let me shoot his Springfield...and his M1 Garrand. Definitely awesome experiences as I've never shot a larger caliber centerfire rifle before!!

Yup, had fun today despite the crappy weather change.

Tim, you're plenty welcome. I'm always up for spreading Garand-itis to the unafflicted. Here's that link again: www.odcmp.com/

Weather cleared up considerably after you guys left. Pretty strong head winds though. All in all, a good range day.

I'm already online with ODCMP to get a hold of a M1903A3 springfield just like yours...unless yours is for sale????

Ha ha, not right now. I only have the one and if I sell it, then I won't be able to use the stacking swivels, LOL (need 3 rifles for that). Besides, mine has a hairline crack in the top handguard.

You know, I will be taking a trip over to the North Store in the near future (probably before Nov. 5) to stock up on ammo. If you haven't ordered one by then, I can look through their 1903A3's to see if there are any nice ones, and pick you up one if you wanted.

BTW, check out their forums if you haven't yet, they have a lot of info on there, plus the CMP people frequent the forums occassionally and provide targeted answers.

EDIT: I just followed my own advice and checked the forums and found this: LINK

Apparently they were out of 1903A3's at the North Store, but it says they would be back in stock by September, so I assume they received their shipment. I put a reply on there asking for verification that they are back in stock. We'll see.

I sent you an email and I'm definitely interested. Let me know what's going on when you get a chance.
