N 1984 I bought a CMP for $165, nice International Harvester with national match barrel and operating rod and bolt made in July 1952 same as my birthday. I shot about 6000 rnds, much of it at the NRA Whittington Center silhouette range in Raton. NM.I sold it for $1250 to pay copay for my neck surgery in 2018

That Whittington Center is impressive. We visited it at the height of the covid lockdown when we decided to NOT lock down. The Museum wasn't open but all the ranges were open. Great camping areas for RV's, not much shade but the views were incredible.
Certainly encourage a visit there.

I feel your pain. I sold my M1, oddly enough in 2018, to put towards medical bills as well (for neck surgery, seriously!!). I was told all was covered under my insurance. Well, apparently 'all' did not include the anesthesiologist. I got slapped with a pretty hefty bill after I paid my copay, and had to sell some guns to cover it all.
