    Returned war surplus firearms

    Not 100% sure, but I think I read something about U.S. Laws not allowing U.S. manufactured Military firearms back into the country.

    Also, some of these Garands may have been cut down one inch off the buttstock to accomodate the smaller statured Koreans. That was a common modification. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    .
    Be Warned! If you bother me, I can make it to the front gate in 3.2 seconds. Can you do it in 3.1?

    Did you happen to see para. 6 of that:

    "The second Obama administration objection is accidents. But in fact, increasing gun density in the United States has been associated with steeply declining rates of gun accidents. In 1948 there were .36 guns per person. (That is, about one gun for every three Americans.) By 2004, there was nearly one gun for every American. In 1948, there were 1.6 fatal gun accidents per 100,000 persons. By 2004, the rate had fallen by 86%, so that there were .22 fatal accidents per 100,000 persons."

    Mine was Danish and in excellent condition.

    With a new weapons ban about to begin in the United States I wonder if Canada will get some of these Korean M-1 Garands.

    I emailed John at Marstar about 10 days ago or so and have not had a reply. I asked if he knew anything about this situation. Hello John?
