Older Daughter (the shooting instructor) and I were discussing the new Garand, and her general desire to go shooting.
I mentioned that I need a sling, cleaning kit and more ammo for the M1, and mused about trying to shop on the Saturday after Christmas, along with the hoards of those who found a) gift cards, b) cash, and/or c) new shootin' irons under the tree.
She pointed out that she has plenty of .30-'06, a spare sling, and cleaning supplies for that caliber.
Methinks she really, really wants to visit the range. :)
