Good for you for taking your Dad shooting! And thanks for that visual of shooting seagulls off a fantail with a BAR. Made me laugh.
I've got a family member with a BAR...hmmm, might have to see if he is up for a little seagull hunting.
Another one here with much love for the M1 carbine. It was the first rifle I ever shot / learned to shoot on. Spent many a summer day at my grandfather's place out in the middle of the Mojave Desert as a kid. Back in the day when it was ok for a grandparent to give their grandson a rifle and a few boxes of ammo and told "just over that way and watch out for rattlesnakes." Good times.
Still have that M1, as well as 2 IBMs I picked up from CMP. They're about due for a range trip, may have to take one next time out.

Its a great rifle. I'm not sure why I never considered one long ago when they were plentiful and cheap. I have a second USGI Inland that's in an aftermarket Para stock. The rear sight is loose enough that it falls out...need to figure out how to secure it.
|fugitive from reality|
The rear sight shoud have at least gwo stake marks in the rifle side of the sight dovetail. If it doesn't then thre is very little holding the sight in place.
'I'm pretty fly for a white guy'.
Oh no, this one has been messed with. You can clearly tell its had a file down the dovetail. This will need extra-ordinary help to fix...staking it won't work. I'm thinking a set screw under the sight through the body or I've seen a writeup about using thin tin sheets under as proper mil-spec repair (field expedient)
