Re: when and where was your !st encounter with the m1 garand
August 1947. Basic training, US Army............Korea, 1951. Over the hills (mountains) and through the valleys. Ruined the day for a lot of Chinese and North Koreans. Nothing could beat it in those days. Today, I'm outclassed with all these sci-fi weeeepons.
Blessed are those who expect nothing....for they shall not be disappointed
