It was in the news this week about a son that gave his Dad an amazing gift. His 79 year old father would always talked about his M1 Garand. How he could hit a popup target at 500 yards with the iron sights, and how reliable it was during his service in the Korean War. He even remembered the serial number. His son decided to see if he could find anything out about the rifle. After talking to some dealers, he actually found the rifle and bought it for his father. They said that over 7 million M1 Garands were built during the Korean War, so this was quite a miracle.
