I have a Garand that i wont shoot,, well i shot a complete clip through it when i first got it but that was it. it was made in 1942 and issued to a coastwatcher who took it straight home. It sat there till i bought it 10 yrs. go, for all intents and purposes its brand new. Its a real shame that most European countries wont allow thier citizens to keep personal firearms, especially the UK, being an ex pat from there it saddens me to see that.
