    I read the title wrong, I thought I was going to see some nice cake or something. Oh well, looks like you had fun even without the Cake.:D

    I love my M1, it was my grandfather's service weapon in WWII, you can pour 1000 rounds through it in one day and the last round will fire just as straight as the first. I got it as a present on my 18th birthday (7 years ago) and I have never encountered one single problem with that weapon. Same goes for my father who got it from my grandfather on his 18th birthday. You can still see where my grandfather marked my grandmother's name on the stock. It's a cool piece of my family's history.

    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.

    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;)

    That is very nice and I love the tradition. My parent are Jack Wagons and dont do that whole pass it down the line thing. I hope to someday be able to do something like that for my sons but who knows.

    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:D
