General Firearm Information And Website Features

The M1 Garand site as it once was contained many things not related to M1 Garand Rifles. As I developed little anecdotes, features, and news, it seemed natural to put it on the M1 Garand site since that was my only firearms related section.

This has gotten unwieldy however and now I feel it is best to have this page as a separate section in order to facilitate dissemination of anything I may want to say that is not M1 Garand related.

The buttons on the sidebar and the art is of course still M1 Garand related - at least until such time as I decide to devote the energy to this section which will be required to make it into its own section.

    This flag was produced as a political statement to the general community of gun owners, shooters, hunters, collectors, shotgunner, riflemen, handgunners, benchrest shooters, class 3 fans, and anyone else involved with the hunting and shooting sports. I am tired of the abject stupidity of gun owners who do not stand together when we are being presented with the greatest challenges to our rights. In addition to the free flag graphics there is a little diatribe I wrote regarding this issue.

  • Making Serial Numbers Stand Out (White Lettering techniques)
    Rifle White Lettering TechniquesEver since I first penned and photographed the M1 Garand site, I have been asked how I made the lettering on the rifles stand out. The white lettering techniques are actually VERY simple and I am pleased to present the way the I did so here. As with ALL of the website where techniques are talked about, you need to understand that this is an example of how I do things ONLY and is not a recommendation nor instructions.
