M1 Garand

Radio Appearance: Kate Krueger Talking Guns, KFNX 1100 AM Phoenix

This past Sunday, February 24, I was given the opportunity to be a guest on Kate Krueger Talking Guns, “Your Source for Gun News, Views and More,” a radio talk-show airing on KFNX 1100 AM (“Independent Talk”) on Sundays, noon to 2 PM, in the Phoenix, Arizona, area and over the Internet as well. The topic of our discussion was those U.S.-made South Korean M1 Garand rifles that are supposed to be coming back home and which I last blogged about here.

While I haven’t been able to confirm anything yet, the rumor I’ve encountered with increasing frequency in cyberspace is that a well-known U.S. firearms importer has the 84,417 Garands and parts in their possession. One seemingly well-informed Civilian Marksmanship Program forum poster even went so far as to say that all the rifles are back on American soil, the importer is sorting and inspecting the guns, and that they’ll be made available for sale sometime this year.

Like I said- this is all rumor at this point in time. But I’m hoping to get confirmation of all this in the coming days.

In the meantime, if you didn’t get a chance to listen to the show this past Sunday (where I name the rumored importer and share more details about this continuing saga), the link can be found on the Talking Guns website in their “Archives” section here (second hour), or just click on/download the following MP3 file:

About the experience? I was nervous (I’m realizing my thoughts flow better via the keyboard), but Kate Krueger was fantastic to talk to and made me feel right at home on the show. And boy does she know her subject material! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. From the Talking Guns website:

Kate has a strong firearms and martial arts background. Although she was not brought up around firearms her fighting spirit eventually brought her to that next logical step. She is an NRA Instructor and a certified Arizona Concealed Carry instructor as well. Her thirst for knowledge has led her to training facilities around the country, Smith & Wesson, Lethal Force Institute (now Massad Ayoob Group), Chapman Academy, Gunsite to name a few. Isshin Ryu was her style of choice in martial arts but she has continued to add to that background with ground fighting, hand to hand, weapon retention and other varients of weapon and empty hand techniques. Through martial arts and shooting competitions over the years she honed her skills.

This knowledge applied to the Garand as well. I was really impressed she knew so much about the U.S.-made rifle, whether it was being able to easily-answer the call-in question from “Tony” in Phoenix about detachable magazines to her discussion about “Garand Thumb” or “M1 Thumb.”

Talking Guns Producer Dana Desing Brewster was also excellent to work with. It was somewhat of a chore (of my making) trying to nail down a date/time for me to appear on the show, but Dana handled this like a real pro.

By the way, near the end of the M1 Garand segment I accidentally interrupted Kate. Kate had the floor, and I was all too happy to oblige. What I was going to say was that those who have been following the story of the South Korean Garands should thank Lee Tae-hoon, formerly of The Korea Times and now back in school from what I understand, and Fredy Riehl over at the shooting sports news website AmmoLand.com for the contributions they’ve made to the repatriation of these iconic rifles. Lee did a tremendous job tracking and writing about these iconic rifles over in the Republic of Korea, and sharing pertinent information with me via e-mail. Fredy made sure the story got out to a much wider audience than my blog currently reaches. The way I see it, I’m just along for the ride- a twisting, turning one with a little bit of mystery thrown in.

Check out the show if you get the chance!

What Next For Auctioned-Off South Korean M1 Garand Rifles?

Here’s a quick update on those tens of thousands of U.S.-made M1 Garand rifles that were supposedly coming back to the United States from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) to be sold to American Korean War veterans and their families in time for the 62nd anniversary of the start of Korean War.

Back on April 17, I mentioned an article by Lee Tae-hoon on The Korea Times (South Korea) that said 84,417 Korean War-vintage M1 Garand rifles had been listed on the state-run Internet auction site Onbid.go.kr in an attempt to find a pair of Korean and American brokers to market the old rifle.

Then, I happened to catch a June 5 press release from the office of U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) on the shooting sports news site AmmoLand.com that claimed the semi-automatic long guns would be sold in the United States through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

Well, the 62nd anniversary of the start of Korean War has come and gone (American Korean War vets- thank you for your service!), and as far as I know these historic rifles have not yet been repatriated to U.S. shores. In an e-mail exchange with Lee Tae-hoon right after the Tester piece came out the journalist noted that the Onbid.go.kr bid ended with the winner offering 30,821,850,000 won, or $26,109,148.67 for 84,417 M1 rifles and their parts- which comes out to $309.29 per rifle/parts. At least it sounds like progress is being made.

Tae-hoon has done a great job keeping on top of this story, and interested parties are hoping The Korea Times reporter will have something new about the deal soon.

Chicago ‘Wildings’ Are Back

COME TO CHICAGO for your vacation. We need your money. Spend it or we will take it.

-Anonymous comment about the latest instances of wildings on Chicago police blog Second City Cop this weekend

When will I win the lottery? When will I win the lottery?

The reason I’m thinking this is that something peculiar happened to me twice last week.

On Monday night, for no particular reason, I wondered about the auction results for tens of thousands of American-made M1 Garand rifles in South Korea that may be repatriated to the United States soon.

Tuesday morning, I opened up the shooting sports website AmmoLand.com and saw this:

Tester Says Antique Gun Re-Importation Moving Forward

Senator led push to allow American-made firearms abroad to be re-sold to U.S. collectors…

Yes, Senator Tester was referring to the South Korean M1 Garands.

Fast-forward to Saturday night. I managed to catch a TV news segment about the Chicago Blues Festival going on downtown, and with everything else going on down by the lake (crowded beaches, Navy Pier fireworks, the World Naked Bike Ride- And Skate), I thought about wildings (or flash mobs/mob actions, if you prefer).

In case you don’t know what a “wilding” is, from the UrbanDictionary.com:

Wilding- a slang term that refers to the practice of marauding in bands to terrorize strangers and to swagger and bully.

The way I figured, conditions were just right (lots of people downtown, hot weather, Chicago Public Schools breaking for summer this week). Curiosity got the better of me and before I went to bed Saturday evening I searched for recent bouts of wildings in the city.

Nothing.

Sunday morning, I pulled up the unofficial Chicago Police Department blog Second City Cop, and lo and behold, what did I see?

A Wild(ing) Night

Any word on 018 blowing up overnight?

Oh wait – here’s a portion of the story popping up on BreakingNews.com:

Chicago police this morning were looking into at least three separate downtown muggings that were carried out by separate groups of attackers, as the city gears up for its busy summer festival season.

The attacks occurred among hundreds of tourists and music lovers emptied out of Grant Park for the Chicago Blues Festival, which city officials tout as the largest free blues festival in the world…

Apparently, 018 (referring to Chicago Police Department District 018- Near North) did “blow up-” with wildings (the local media is calling it “mob actions”). Erin Meyer wrote on the Chicago Tribune website this morning:

An 18-year-old man was charged along with seven teenagers who were charged with mob action following a series of muggings carried out Saturday night by groups of attackers, including one that left a visitor from Michigan hospitalized with a broken jaw.

In the first attack, a group of young people beat and robbed the 40-year-old man in the 500 block of North State Street just before 10 p.m….

A second attack, which police believe to be unrelated, occurred about 30 minutes later near the Lake/State Red Line station in the 100 block of North State Street. A couple was accosted by an unknown number of suspects near the Chicago Theatre. A male victim suffered minor injuries and was also treated at Northwestern.

Police received a report of a third attack near Navy Pier, but police couldn’t provide the exact time of the attack.

Not too long after Meyer’s article, Chicago Tribune staff reported another wilding that took place Sunday night. From the Tribune website:

A man walking home from work was attacked and beaten by a large group of people on the Gold Coast late Sunday, police said…

The group of attackers was comprised of between 15 and 20 males and females, police said. Preliminary police reports indicated that they may have been teenagers.

Police are listing the attack as a battery and there is no indication that the man was robbed…

When will I win the lottery?


“3 hurt in weekend mob attacks”
WGN TV Video

From the comments I read on Second City Cop, this weekend’s wildings were worse than what’s being reported by the Chicago media. It’s alleged CTA commuters were also beaten, and naked bike riders pulled of their bikes and beaten/fondled.

Naked bike riders. You’ve got to be kidding me.

Over a year ago on May 4, 2011, I blogged:

I’ve been hearing more about kids coming together and forming groups for the purpose of carrying out criminal activities lately. Back on January 24, I wrote about an incident in which eleven of these “honor students” were eventually busted for shoplifting at three stores along Michigan Avenue’s “Magnificent Mile.” According to the CPD, they stole more than $5,000 worth of merchandise during their “shopping spree.”

I added this warning:

As long-time Chicagoans know, if Chikow thinks now is bad, wait ‘til summer. Furthermore, if City Hall “loses” downtown to the bad guys- or, in this case, bad boys and girls- you lose the tourists, their money, revenue… you get the point.

You listenin’ Rahm?

The question bears repeating.

South Korea Looking For Brokers To Sell 84,417 M1 Garand Rifles To U.S. Korean War Vets And Families

(Editor’s note: Latest update to post here)

March 7 was the last time I updated Survival And Prosperity readers about 86,000 U.S.-made M1 Garand rifles possibly coming back to the United States from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) to be sold to American Korean War veterans and their families in time for the 62nd anniversary of the Korean War (June 25).

While the deal is still on- there’s some good news and bad news.

The good news is that progress is being made to repatriate these legendary firearms back to the United States.

The bad news is that we’re only talking about 84,417 M1 Garand rifles now.

Lee Tae-hoon wrote on The Korea Times (South Korea) website this morning:

The Ministry of National Defense has started an online auction for 84,417 M1 Garand rifles used in the 1950-1953 Korean War, ministry officials said Tuesday.

The ministry is trying to find a pair of Korean and American brokers for the deal that will market the old rifles, bought by the ministry at the end of the war, to U.S. veterans. Each rifle can fetch around $500, pushing the total price to more than $40 million.

The ministry plans to have the proceeds directly go to Daewoo Precision to pay for K-2 rifles, each of which is priced at $727.

“All of them are expected to be shipped to the United States for sale,” a ministry official said.

Onbid.go.kr, the state-run Internet auction site, says that the bidding is open until the end of the month.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

While South Korean defense officials confirmed the deal for the M1 Garands is still a “go,” they reminded everyone that anything could happen. Tae-hoon added:

“Though the United States has agreed to allow the importation of the M1 Garand rifles from Seoul, there is a slight possibility that it may reverse its earlier decision if there is a change in gun-control laws or a changed political situation,” an official said.

Gun rights supporters will be watching, I’m sure.

Lee Tae-hoon and The Korea Times have done a great job keeping on top of this developing story. I’m sure American Korean War veterans and their families are most appreciative of the work they’ve done. If you read the whole piece, you’ll even notice yours truly was quoted. Tae-hoon wrote:

Many American gun enthusiasts, including Christopher E. Hill, an editor at Survival And Prosperity, have responded positively after The Korea Times reported on Jan. 19 about the Barack Obama administration’s reversal of its 2010 decision to block the import of the wartime rifles.

“First and foremost, it’s understood that revenue generated by the sale of these M1 Garand rifles will allow Korea to acquire more modern, locally-made Daewoo Precision Industries K2 assault rifles,” he said. “Upgrading Korea’s defense capabilities in light of recent developments in the region might not be such a bad idea.”

He also noted that the M1 rifle has tremendous historical value in the United States as it not only represents American ingenuity in that it outclassed many of its adversaries when it first entered service, but it also symbolized America’s coming of age on the world stage.

Now, I wouldn’t go so far as to describe myself as a “gun enthusiast”- I familiarize myself with firearms-related material as it pertains to my research/blogging about personal safety issues. And here is my full response to Tae-hoon’s question as to why I think U.S. citizens should be able to buy the South Korean Garands:

First and foremost, it’s understood that revenue generated by the sale of these M1 Garand rifles will allow the Republic of Korea to acquire more modern, locally-made Daewoo Precision Industries K2 assault rifles. Upgrading South Korea’s defense capabilities in light of recent developments in the region might not be such a bad idea.

Second, the M1 Garand has tremendous historical value in the United States. John Garand’s creation, which served American troops with distinction in World War Two, Korea, and in the early days of the Vietnam conflict, not only represents American ingenuity in that it outclassed many of its adversaries when it first entered service, but it also symbolizes America’s coming of age on the World Stage.

Third, I understand that other U.S.-made M1 Garand rifles used by America’s allies during the Cold War were repatriated and turned over to the Civilian Marksmanship Program for sale to the U.S. public. Proceeds benefited the non-profit CMP, which along with its predecessors, has been striving “To Promote Firearm Safety and Marksmanship Training With an Emphasis on Youth” since 1903.

Finally, in part due to its historical value and availability through the Civilian Marksmanship Program, the M1 Garand is incredibly popular today among firearm enthusiasts in the United States. According to the CMP website:

“The popularity of the M1 Garand continues to grow as hundreds of new Garand ‘Fun’ Matches are being held all over the USA each year. In the past ten years, the M1 Garand, regardless of condition, has become a very hot collectors’ item and sound financial investment.”

Will the M1 Garands make it back to the U.S.A. and be offered up for sale to Korean War veterans and their families by June 25? Stay tuned…

Update On M1 Garand Rifles From South Korea

(Editor’s note: Latest update to post here)

Back on February 17, 2012, I blogged about recent declarations from South Korean defense ministry officials suggesting 86,000 U.S.-made M1 Garand rifles would be coming back to the United States from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) to be sold to American Korean War veterans and their families in time for the 62nd anniversary of the Korean War, which falls on June 25 this year. As recent as February 6, Lee Tae-hoon wrote on The Korea Times (South Korea) website:

Washington recently gave the green light to the sale of some 86,000 M1 Garand rifles that were used by allied forces during the Korean War and kept in the South Korean Army’s inventory for the past six decades.

A South Korean defense ministry official even went so far as to tell Tae-hoon weeks earlier that they planned on announcing a bid in January or February for the selection of agencies to sell the M1 Garand rifles to Americans, and that the U.S. government has been reviewing legal procedures for the approval of a third party transfer.

(Editor’s note: The Korea Times claims that the U.S. government rejected Seoul’s proposal to export some 600,000 M1 Carbines back to our shores)

Now, unbeknownst to me, two days before I published my post about the Garand rifles on Survival And Prosperity, Emily Miller discussed President Obama’s proposed 2013 budget on The Washington Times website and wrote:

Mr. Obama’s budget contains other gun-grabbing surprises. The White House is looking to reclaim authority to destroy surplus M1 Garand rifles and M1 Carbines. For 30 years, the Defense Department has been blocked from scrapping these collectible firearms that served our soldiers well in World War II and the Korean War.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

The senior editor for the Opinion pages was able to identify where in the 2013 spending bill language currently prohibiting the destruction of such firearms would be removed upon passage.

So on one hand, the South Korean press is reporting the surplus rifles are coming back to the United States for sale to American Korean War veterans and their families by the summertime. On the other, a member of the American press is claiming the Obama administration is looking to destroy the historical long guns.

That’s all I’ve got for right now, but I’ll keep digging and report back on any new developments.

86,000 M1 Garand Rifles May Be Coming Back From South Korea

(Editor’s note: Latest update to post here)

Recent declarations from South Korean defense ministry officials suggests there may be hope for the repatriation of tens of thousands of U.S.-made M1 Garand rifles from the Republic of Korea (South Korea). For those of you not familiar with the legendary firearm, from the M1 Garand rifle page on MemorablePlaces.com:

The M1 Garand Rifle is best known for its role as the United States Armed Forces’ main battle rifle during World War Two and Korea. The M1 also saw service in Vietnam, especially during the early years, until it was replaced by the M14 and the M16. Indeed the ruggedness and ‘real’ appearance of the Garand Rifle made it a favorite of many soldiers and even 40 plus years after it was replaced, many still consider the M1 superior to the ‘plastic fantastic’ guns that supplanted it.

For some time now, it’s been thought the Obama administration would not permit importation of the historical long guns back into the United States. From the FOX News website on September 1, 2010:

The South Korean government, in an effort to raise money for its military, wants to sell nearly a million antique M1 rifles that were used by U.S. soldiers in the Korean War to gun collectors in America.

The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates.

A State Department spokesman said the administration’s decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.

“The transfer of such a large number of weapons — 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines — could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes,” the spokesman told FoxNews.com.

“We are working closely with our Korean allies and the U.S. Army in exploring alternative options to dispose of these firearms.”

Fast-forward to January 18, 2012, when The Korea Times (South Korea) reported that the decision by the U.S. government to restrict their importation had been reversed. Lee Tae-hoon wrote:

Washington has agreed to allow the importation of M1 Garand rifles from Seoul, reversing its earlier decision to ban the shipping of the weapon used by South Korean and U.S. soldiers during the 1950-53 Korean War, a senior defense official said Wednesday.

“The U.S. government approved the imports of some 86,000 of the rifles,” said Lee Sun-chul, deputy defense minister for force and resources management.

“The historic firearms are expected to be sold to American Korean War veterans and their families in time for the 62nd anniversary of the Korean War, which falls on June 25 this year.”

Kim Mi-sung, an official of the force and resources management office, said the defense ministry received an approval letter from the United States on Sept. 2 last year that stated Washington agreed to allow the importation of the M1s.

She noted that the U.S. government, however, rejected Seoul’s proposal to export some 600,000 M1 Carbines, which were also used in the Korean War, as they come with a magazine that can carry multiple rounds unlike the Garands.

“We plan to announce a bid later this month or in February for the selection of agencies to sell the M1 rifles to Americans,” Kim said. “The U.S. has been reviewing legal procedures for the approval of a third party transfer.”

The return of these South Korean-based M1 Garand rifles to our shores isn’t a done deal, however. Tae-hoon added:

A senior defense ministry official, however, raised the possibility that the U.S. government may cancel the plan to allow the purchase the M1s, saying Seoul has yet to finalize negotiations with Washington.

“We have yet to receive confirmation from the United States over our proposal,” he said. “The U.S. government may change its position at the last minute due to political considerations.”

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Yet, in a follow-up piece from February 6, Tae-hoon repeated:

Washington recently gave the green light to the sale of some 86,000 M1 Garand rifles that were used by allied forces during the Korean War and kept in the South Korean Army’s inventory for the past six decades.

I haven’t come across anything yet from our government confirming these M1 Garands are coming back to the States, but I’ll be contacting some very knowledgeable parties in the coming days about the status of their return. Of course, anything I turn up will be posted on Survival And Prosperity.

And in case you’re interested in the price of these rifles, Tae-hoon noted that according to one ROK defense ministry official, the Garands “currently sell for around $220.”
