I posted this in General awhile ago, but thought I'd put it here in Mil Surp as well as it's more appropriate here.

I wrote an article on M-1 Garand tips and tricks for my Michigan Firearms Examiner (http://www.examiner.com/firearms-in-detroit/rob-reed) column. I had to break it into three smaller articles due to article size restrictions at Ex.

I hope you find it helpful. Feel free to let me know what you think.
