I went shooting today. Took my M1 carbine. I had just put another stock on it, as the stock needed replaced. I laid it on the table, and was just getting ready to load it when "The Expert" stopped to look at it. He proceeded to inform me that my carbine was a commercial copy (Nat'l Ord), and that the stock was for a G.I. Saginaw. He said it was people like me that caused problems for the "purists", as he was sure that someone out there was looking for that exact stock, and wasn't going to be able to get it because I had put it on a "copy". I politely asked him if he knew of the guy looking for this stock personally. Of course, he didn't know him personally, but he "just knew". I informed him that if he would like the stock, he could buy it from me. WOULDN"T BUY IT BECAUSE HE DIDN"T OWN A CARBINE!!!!! Is that funny, or what?? I just picked up my carbine, and started tapping away.
