First posting. I am also a fan of Milsurp world podcast.. it's the only one I've found just about Milsurps... It does make a long commute go quicker. My first Milsurp was one my Dad purchased in 1964. Quality Hardware M1 Carbine. Used to love shooting that as a kid, and I still do today. It's something i would never part with. Just took it to the range with another one of its relatives.... and check out the original price tag!
