Re: Springfield Arms Magazine?
Thanks Alpo - I like hyphens and furry little animals.
There have been at least 10 different times since the first of the year where I've heard stories about the 'Deadly defect' (the ping from an ejected empty M1 cliup). I think even on Top Shot Jeff or who ever the host is - mentioned it at length.
I never used a Garand in combat. We had M-16s and M-14s when it was my time, and my weapon was an M-60. Get a few guys firing and it gets really noisy. Kind of doubt if anyone could hear an empty clip ping at 75 yards, and if they did, I doubt they would know which squad member was reloading. Don't think I'd want to be the joker who jumps up and races a guy stuffing a fresh clip into an M1........
