OK i got to pick up my rifle but only after being held hostage again by the state of
They no longer accept a DD-214 as proof of proper gun handling and training!
Only if you retire with 20+years do they acknowledge your DD-214 in Kami-fornia. SO Being on the spot they told me i had to take a 30 question test from the Great state of anti-gun Legal ownership CA. which wanted an addtional $25.00 out of pocket and the risk if i failed to pass I get a second chance 24 hrs later then the third chance would come only after 6months!!!
I told them bring on the test.
Second warning came from the gun shop keep.
Without studing for it??? yeah i think after 8 1/2 years of service and being active with reading and standing up against cailf violations of Constitutional rights of gunownership of the individual. They were not gonna stop this transaction unchallenged.
Took their test standing up i might add and scored a 100% on the spot. Got my new we'll let you purchase gun card and took my rifle hoem and sighend up for the 10 day wait on the high standard.
inside the my blue and white box
1 M1a synthetic black stock
us army tech manual 1963
springfield saftey manual
1 M1a 10 round magazine installed in the weapon
Bolt held open by 1 flag safety.
The weapon is very very dryly lubricated.
Instruction repeat constantly that weapon is desighned to operate dryly.
I attached the the M2 bi pod and Gi Sling to the weapon. what a sight!
Back in the box she goes until the ammo arrives
Seeing the garand action of the m1a reminds me of my ruger mini-14
now i have the best of both worlds.
