    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    The first shot grabs them but it's the ping that locks them in!

    I was a teaching assistant at RIT while completing my engineering degree. One of the younger classmates was a left-leaning fellow. Took him out shooting at the club with an M1icon. It has been 12 years now and recently heard from Dave about his memorable experience that day. He got an M1 for himself and stated that it was the first of many firearm purchases that he has made over the years.

    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    Proselytism is what we need, bravo!
    I almost consider it a mission to bring anti-gun folks to the range. A few come, but they're worth the effort.
    They never come out of there the same persons, guaranteed.
    Maybe they will not do a U-turn, but they sure open their eyes on our world and on arms enthusiasts.

    Applies to more than just Garands. Every old rifle I've worked on, if the bolt is in the white, the knob gets a mirror polish so the shooter can see their big goofy grin ear to ear after each shot. It never gets old.
