A tent has formed in my Khakis...

I picked up a Springfield 1911 for a great price, and after some research by me on their site (and none by the auction house) came to realize I have purchased a Range Officer model. Not a bad pickup for $425. The tent formed, however, when I went back to the home page and this popped up there...

Think I may have to start a Go Fund Me...

Beauty, eye, all that. Fell in love with the M-14 in my Navy days, and to the eye the classic walnut cannot be compared to. However, I shoot mine, and like the ability to fit it to me, rather than the other way around. It FEELS beautiful. Love my 7.62, just now asking myself "I wonder what a replacement barrel goes for..."

I love 6.5 Creedmoor. Never shot it, but itís popularity appears to pressuring 7.62 prices downward. I shoot a bunch of that, so keep on loving on 6.5.please!
