I do not own a Garand but would like to. I know I won't shoot a butt ton of ammo thru it. And when I pass away my wife and kids really would not care that it is a Garand. If I shoot 500 rounds thru it at short range it would be a miracle. Here is what I would be looking at::: The RM1 SERVICE for $750. Delivered to my door. And I would also be in for a bunch of ammo. For similar money I could buy a crap ton of decent .22LR and spend years shooting it up at my home range of 25~150-yards. I have several .22LR pistols and rifles. OR"""" for the same money I could get a HENRY Color Case hardened lever gun in .45-70 or .357 Maggie. And a $250 ammo budget for .45-70 to get into brass and dies and moulds. I can shoot .357 Maggie right now. Range is not that long. What Say You??????????
