I have been extraordinarily busy in "the Real World", I will post about it in a day to 'splain what is going on....Nothing bad good news actually but it pulled me away from my blog.
I snagged this off "American Rifleman" It was fascinating read. I thought it was a different take on the Garand, I do know that the Germans had a different opinion on the Garand, the German Army Ordinance people didn't like the Garand, they hated the sights and they considered the 8 round clip limiting. But we American considered the Rifle excellent for our needs and the rifle served us well. I know, I owned one until my untimely Kayak accident *Sniff, Sniff*.
