    Old Tucson, AZ worth vsiting

    PIMA air museum and a tour of the mothball aircraft nearby is a must see. You can signup for the tour at the museum.

    Old Tucson, AZ worth vsiting

    Been there a couple times and got in free each time as I was dressed properly and showed my SASS information. Went healed each time and had more than a few take photos of me and with me. Also asked questions thinking I worked at the place. The northern part of the town burned down some time ago but there are still portions of the southern part that was used in movies you may have seen. Yes the set for High Chaparral is there. Its set up as a tourist destination, there are shows, tours, places to eat, a small train that runs around the entire perminter, there's an old steam train engine that has been used in many different movies. North of Benson which is on the interstate north of Tombstone is a western town movie set that was used to film several movies including Tombstone and The Quick and the Dead. The caretaker is the one that gives the tours. There are no amenities just the town and the caretaker.

    Your Garands

    All the M1 Garands posted are GREAT! This thread inspired me to update my group photo so I took them all out of the safe along with the appropriate bayonets for the photographs. Also updated the info for each which is cut and pasted here. As I was putting them away realized I forgot to put the M2 flash hiders on the 3 snipers so there is a separate photo of them. Oh and I also included the 1941 Johnson in the family portrait, hope you don't mind.

    Winter Range vendors

    Rent a larger trailer with a hitch in Phoenix and tow the smaller trailer behind it going home. OR you could ship back what won't fit and pick it up once you get home.
