Re: 30 Carbine Ammo for my M1
While I agree that saying "M1" brings a picture of the Garand to mind, saying "the carbine" is as helpful as saying "the pistol", "the shotgun" or "the car". Carbines were around for centuries before the M1, and are still being made today. "M1 Carbine" is very helpful in figuring out just which carbine you are speaking of.
Also, the shooting world speaks of the "Trapdoor", but that is technically the 1873. We speak of the "Springfield", but that is the 1903. We speak of the Krag, but that is technically the 1892. I don't believe I've ever heard anyone call their .45 a "pistol, self-loading, caliber 45, Model 1911A1". And many, many, many of us say Garand. Newbie my Aunt Mathilda.
