Would it be wrong to carry/shoot a 6.5x55 Swede and wear a German Army helmet so I can look like my avatar?

or do I have to go with a German Mauser?
Heck Allans Armory has mausers for under $400 that are supose to be russian captures.

I have never bought a weapon off the net...too shy about doing it, I want to see them in person, I just don't trust what you see on the internet....I do have my C&R but have not used it yet...might try something small first.

Maybe an unfair advantage.

Would certainly throw the competition.

Two classes, sniper and stock battle rifle. But why id 1953 too late? Bolt class and semi class or just say no semis? That seems like it would count out a lot of Garand guys who would love to play.

How many Garand guys do you know that don't have a bolt battle rifle?

One more little thing. Finding a 600 yard range is going to be a problem for a lot of us. 300 will be stretching it, too.

My gun club has a 600yd range. Come here and compete! And I don't think ANY Garand guys are boltless.

I'm sitting here tapping my foot for my 20 week wait on my Baer. One of the best value guns around, especially if you get in on one of Crazy John's sales....
