I've shot much more modern military weapons, but the M1 Garand can still hold it's head up in the best of company, as an auto loader.

It's accurate and reliable. I have pulled off some of my most spectacular moving shots with this rifle, all over open sights using standard ball ammo.

Yeah.... sure there are lighter rifles and rifles with greater magazine capacity. But nothing beats the pure satisfaction of squeezing off a few rounds from this weapon, the 30-06 round has beautiful ballistics and arrives downrange with enough punch to do what's required of it, well out past my maximum shooting capability.

I served my time using the Australiam manufactured FN FAL commonly called the SLR and it is a fine weapon which earned me my crossed rifles (marksmans badge) but in a long range sporting role I'd still defer to the Garand.

I haven't one single photo of me with my beloved Garand so here's one of the SLR my second choice. Female dingo, taken at approx 600yds on the move

Favorite Firearm, Hmmm.......

Well, I've layed with so many it's really heard. I'd have to say my GLOCK 23C.

Played with everything from Ruger 10/22s to 20mm anti-material rifles.

Please tell me more, it intrigues me that you would select a handgun as a favourite firearm. Personally I have always regarded them as weapons of absolute last resort. Police work excepted perhaps, where they need to be handy at all times.

I can conceal carry pistol and take out most game in my area with a well placed shot. Can't conceal a longarm with not being able to draw and use it in. Can with a pistol. Besides, my pistols are used for getting to my longarms.

I thought the non-compensated GLOCKs were better?

Over here in Australia carrying a concealed weapon is a Federal and State offence and would earn you a long stretch on the inside looking out. Even our Police must carry them in plain view.

I have never heard of anyone being able to convince the authorities here that a handgun is suitable for hunting game of any sort. Although I must admit I have dropped the occasional kangaroo with my old .357 Python, but only because I wanted some dog meat and had no other weapon in the vehicle at the time.

That's why I am 100% thankful to God that I live in the Great State of Florida.

Compensated GLOCKs work great. Reduces muzzle climb during a long string of shots.
