Default Korean M1 Garands to be imported

US allows import of 86,000 M1 rifles from Korea
Quote:
January 18, 2012 - Washington has agreed to allow the importation of M1 Garand rifles from Seoul, reversing its earlier decision to ban the shipping of the weapon used by South Korean and U.S. soldiers during the 1950-53 Korean War, a senior defense official said Wednesday.

That is very good news. How will they be sold? The Dems and Obama sure tried to stop this. I know NRA members wrote tons of letters to our Politicos.

Default Twofer........

This will coinside with the flood of surplus ammo coming from russia......So where are the other rifles, out of 1 million thats only a drop in the bucket.... Besides Fast and Furrious will get thier hands on them and sell them to the Drug Lords in Mexico.......

I thought Oblama had blocked this? I have always NEEDED a Garand. If this comes to pass, I think I will get two.
