I had the Garand out to the range today. It is dialed.

This may not sound so good to some of you guys. With Greek M2 ball, I was shooting groups that I could cover with one hand at 100 yards with iron sights. ...and I don't have very big hands.

I'm happy. I really worked hard on the basics today, cheek weld, shoulder position, sight picture, breathing and trigger pull. This is an excellent rifle. Now, I just have to practice, practice, practice.

Sounds like you have it dialed in pretty good, especially with surplus ammo.. Remember these rifles were built to hit man sized targets

Thanks Orlando. Now that it's set, I have to really start working at offhand, kneeling and prone positions. I want to be able to use this rifle to its full capabilities, not sit at a bench. Anyway, if I ever have to use it for its intended purpose, I doubt there'll be a bench handy.

Practicing is the fun part! You have a sling and that's almost as good as a bench. Don't forget to keep the bayo on it for extra fun....

Sorry, I got you confused with the other new Garand owner. Bayos aren't really that expensive if you get the shorter ones. Try to find a sixteen incher, that's where the prices go up.

I've checked out the shorter bayonets on SARCO. I'll get one when I get some extra bucks.

I've got a new in the package Eickhorn M1 Carbine bayonet and new M8A1 scabbard if someone wants to trade.
