Looks like we need a 1943 Remington 03-A3 in the mix. It's my favorite tack driver! [smilie=pdt_xtremez_13.gif]

My newest addition - even more beautiful when seen in person. Made the long trip to the CMP South Store yesterday and picked up some LC surplus - they were out of the Greek despite what I'd been told the day before. Didn't feel like waiting 2 months that CMP states is the wait time for having an order filled.

Joining the club as of yesterday, starting out with a shorty. Hopefully I can add a full size M1A to join it by the end of the year.

Nothing fancy just yet, looking to get a sling and some sort of Scout optic in the near future.
