Hi everyone, I've been lurking about the forum for quite awhile, decided to finally jump in and join. I'm a semi-retired class III dealer, started in the early 70's. Now mostly into collecting WW II stuff, vehicles, cannons, etc.

Wanted to put a good word in for Merle, the drum doctor. I had found a 39-rd drum at a gun show that had the locking rails ground off, got it for $10. Sent it in to Merle, just got it back, it's like brand new and just purrs through my '28. Also own an M1A1, and a bunch of other NFA toys. My new passion is my restored M3A1 armored Scout Car.

Welcome aboard. Would love to see (and take a ride in) your M3A1. Can you post a picture for the rest of us to envy?

Welcome! The M3 Scout Car is very nice. There was a good article in the current issue of "Military Vehicles" on those. I'm also a long time member of the MVPA. You probably are too?

Thanks for the warm welcome. I live outside of St. Augustine, Florida and am a member of the MVPA. I'll try and post some pictures of my toys.

M3scout,

Welcome to the boards! Lots of great people here.

I am moving in February from VA to Jax, FL. Do you have a recommendation of where to shoot Class 3 stuff in North Florida? My internet search has been pretty unsuccessful so far.

Best wishes,
Earle
