I am a relatively new Garand collector, and I could not have been happier to see that a newsletter is available online now. I am developing an insatiable appetite for anything Garand, and the newsletter fits the bill. Keep up the good work!!

As always, great job on this publication.  Particularly liked reading about Dan Jordan.  I'm in rehab and love seeing things like this.  Shows the others you just have to get out there and make the effort.

Can't believe I haven't pulled up "The First Shot" before this. I"ve been back and forth on the CMP Forum for a couple of years! This year - 2004 - was my first Garand Shoot after waiting for...20 some years. It was terrific! The staff, the facilities, the organization, scheduling, most of all the fellow shooters...made it a memorable time. My wife went with me and she is already asking if I"ve made plans!
