I have been quite on here for a while but had to share my score today. I have been wanting a M-1A for awhile, shot the M-14 to qual awhile back and fell in love. So today took the wife to the range/gun store and sure enough they were having a black gun sale. Looking and looking, I see an M-1A Scout model on there shelf. I take a look, talk to the wife she says i have been good and should go ahead if it is one that I have been wanting...I didnt argue. She starts looking and says hey i like that, pointing to a Springfield XD 9mm, Sub-Compact. Short of it, we ended up buying both. Both of them shoot smooth a feel nice. Then my 14 daughter shot the XD, fell in love. Didn't stay at the range long, but we were all happy with what we got and what we shot. So after today, i can arm everyone in my house with at least one weapon. Good stuff.
