Very cool.. Didn't know you could go out in the desert in California like that. I thought those of us in Nevada and Arizona were the ones who had that priviledge.

We here in CA can still have a little fun, just have to know where to find it!

Cool tradition on the M1!

That much sand without a body of water makes this MS boy nervous; i'm glad you guys enjoyed it.

You should email the coleman can pics to Mythbusters. IIRC, they had trouble setting off propane canisters & fuel tanks with a rifle, perhaps an M1.

That's the beauty of living in the Inland Empire here is SoCal, I'm 60 mins away from the beach, mountains, or the desert, just a question of where I point the car and hit the right pedal. I'm never far from anything

For those of you who wanted some more pics of my M1...

My M1 family


My grandmother's name etched into the stock of the M1 garand by my grandfather during WWII (She was his girlfriend at the time.)


Location of the etching on the stock


If you want more pics just let me know.

This is all my family has ever passed down My dad was the only boy out of 4 kids and I'm an only child. Good thing, if there was another male sibling, I'd have to kick their a$$ and take the heirlooms anyway
