Daniel, aka. AKNorthPolar sent us a photo of his 22/45. He wrote … A Ruger 22/45 Lite with a modified top rail that carries a Primary Arms reflex red dot, MaddMacs compensator, and all the usual internal upgrades. Volquartsen, Tandemkross, and the like.

Gman send us a photo of his International Harvester M1 Garand, with some of the ammo that was shot later that day. The Garand sure is one handsome gun.
