Re: What would you take to battle?
I must agree, Mike, the Garand is far superior to the SKS, although it might be said the SKS was somewhat cheaper to produce, and that was certainly a factor in Soviet thinking when they adopted it. I too like the SKS and own two of them. They're great plinkers, but for battle use, give me a Garand every time.
