I've been in the gun business on and off for 38 years and most people don't know it but my first "real" gun was a Universal M1 carbine.  Yeah, not a real-deal wartime gun, but it was a big step up from my .22 LR guns!  And it started a firepower quest that has yet to end... In my collection I currently have a Rock-Ola, an IBM with Korean rack numbers and an M2 that's hiding around the shop somewhere.  In the pic below the Rock-Ola is in the foreground.

Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to hearing more about your carbines. On a side note, I actually grew up in Tampa close to the Town & Country area.

Welcome to the CCC Forum!  I'm in Tampa as well and I just sent you a Private Message. I tend to favor Rock-Ola's as well Smile
