I'm busy and haven't had any time for shooting lately, but......

My wife wanted to throw out a watermelon.  I forgot to take it to the dump so I blasted it at home with a 12 gauge.  Fun times!

Are those new production m1s or wartime classics?   Im sitting on some ammo and i’d love an m1 but the new ones are hard to find, as most things are now days.  I found an inland but its the sniper version with the scope for $1800.  Im a fan of the 1945 version

The top one is a USGI National Postal Meter Carbine. It was a Blue Sky import.  I shot it for a while, then I sent it off to Fulton Armory for a new barrel, inspection, refinish (metal work) and trigger job.

The bottom one is a new production Fulton Armory.  Well worth the money considering what is available in the M1 Carbine market.  For new production, I only recommend Fulton.  I read James River was supposed to make a decent gun, but I haven’t really seen too many reviews.  Auto Ordnance/Kahr M1 Carbines have always been substantially sub standard in my opinion. The new Inland guns appear to be very hit or miss. Some are really good and then others have problems.  :dunno:

I have looked at the AMT’s but never followed through.  The closest “affordable” option for a .30 Carbine handgun seems to be a Ruger Blackhawk.  I would like to acquire a handgun in that caliber eventually.
I had a AMT to complement my QH/Standard Products M1s and 3 screw Blackhawk. It was a LOUD fire breathing beast but every time I brought it out it made me nervous knowing parts for it are made of Unobtanium and the replacement cost of the gun was beyond my comfort level, so I passed it along to another collector. Fun gun if you can buy one right

I appreciate the heads up on the nature of AMT parts availability.

Well, markets are closed. Might as well step outside and ring some steel with the frangible rifle rounds.
Yee haa!

I was able to grab some range time today with Triton186.  It was good to meet another CTGTer.  Good times at the range with the M1 Carbines and a Tikka T1x. Great weather too.
