Just need to share. Last night I was at the Grand Masters Reception. After we all had are meal, which was out standing by the way, and all the awards were handed out the president gets up and starts to honor the Grand Master. He starts out by tell us about the Grand Masters military background and what he had done. After which he presented him with a gold inlayed M1 Grand. You had to see this gun it was the most beautiful peace I have ever seen. The Grand Master was speechless and everyone could not believe how nice the gun looked. Not one person had a bad word to say. This set me back some as most of the time there is someone that freaks out when a gun is in the room. Thanks for letting me share.
