    I downloaded the WWII era US Army training film on the positions used to shoot the M1 Garand rifle, enhanced the audio and video a bit. Added some music and worked on the transitions a bit. I did this in honor of, and in memory, of the men who used the Garand to defeat the enemies of freedom.

    Don't worry Trez, you'll find that Garand some day. Have you tried gunbroker, gun auctions, Garand collector forums/sites, ect?

    Trez, not sure where you are located, but have you consider purchasing a Garand through the Civilian Marksmanship Program?

    This is where all my Garands have come from.

    In face, just to show you how crazy this addiction can be. I purchased three "Collector Grades" from a guy who is so into Garands he got rid of those in order to generate funds to acquire...ready for this? World War II Garands, still in the original shipping wrapping...yes, mint/unissued WWII era Garands.

    Yes, it is a very serious addiction!

    :)

    Why does it have to be International Harvester? Do you like their "stalks" or something? :D

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    There "stalks" are great... I figure they've been "Harvesting internationally" so they live up to their name :p

    Why are you particularly interested in Harvesters? Just curious.
