I'm new here, but not new to guns or gun forums. Some of you might recognize me from other forums. Growing up in a Navy family, I've been shooting for most of my life. I took a break when my sons were born, now I get to take them shooting. A few years ago, when my Grandfather passed away, I looked through a box of photos of my Great Grandfather. He was a master marksman who competed at Camp Perry and other places. It sparked my interest in Springfield 1903s.

I'm interested in vintage military weapons. I shot my first Garand competition at Chabot Gun Club a few months ago. I had a blast and plan on shooting at more competitions in the future.

Welcome to calguns. You have an interesting heritage. Besides the pictures, do you have any of your great grandpa's medals or trophies?

Thanks. My folks gave me one of the remaining cups from 1911, 2nd place. It doesn't show the name of the competition. I wish some of his rifles (Krags and Springfields) were still around. Apparently he had a house full. His son sold them all. :(
