Save the M-14

Anyone who has had the opportunity to shoot an M-14 service rifle will probably agree with me that it is a great weapon. The top link is an on-line petition to encourage Congress to sell de-militarized (i.e. semi-auto capable only) M-14s through the DCM program instead of using taxpayer $$ to destroy them. Probably not much chance of this happening (IMHO), but if you agree that it should be done, please take 15 seconds to sign the survey.

Second link is to the DCM. Looks like they still have M-1 Garands for sale but they have almost doubled in price since I got mine.

It is a great weapon. It can be stripped and assembled in seconds; bury it in the sand, shake it off and it will fire. The spotter in a USMC sniper team was armed with a customized M-14 shooting match rounds. Very accurate and that .308 had some punch. One of the reproduction companies sells a knock off, I think they call it M-1A1, not sure though.
