Distinguished Reader Garand Porn

Robert ( B.F.I. volunteer, Distinguished Rifleman[.pdf] & all around nice fellow) sent me some pics of his latest acquisitions from the CMP.

A word though; earning the title of Distinguished Rifleman is no easy task. For more reading on the subject look here. here & here's a list of Distinguished Riflemen. If I recall correctly about 1800 people have won a Distinguished Rifleman's badge since about 1884. Robert's badge number is 1659 & he received it in 2003. Needless to say it's an honor to have such a shooter read this site.

Without further adu:

Now that makes me more than a little envious. Great score, if these are just his latest acquisitions what does his whole collection look like?

I've got bolt envy! You got anything against the M-1 carbine? What's your take on it? I was raised on old Sprinfields, Enfields and Garands, but I am not a collector. I just have my self-defense rifles and pistols.

Anyway, interesting blog.
