I believe the aim of many here is to have fun things to read and discuss.
I live in the best possible place in the USA.
It is a tourist trap, and most of my neighbors are snowbirds from up north. Most of them are OK, can’t blame them for moving here.
This past month a guy from California moved in.
He posted on Facebook he just got an M-1 rifle.
I did a web search on the M1 to learn a little.
I am familiar with the gun - some.
Back in the day “Clemson” was “Clemson A&M”.
ROTC was mandatory.
First day on campus they shaved my head and gave me an M1 rifle. All you ex-military understand how one of the main training things was cleaning the rifle (impossible). It was never clean enough no matter how one toiled. We had to be able to take it down and reassemble in the dark as ???. I know the gun inside out.
The M1 goes back to 1928 and was a hero in WW11.
General George S. Patton called it “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”
It came with an M5 bayonet.
It is 30-06, a round with power. Some say that is the upper limit of power that is tolerable to most shooters.
Before I go on, how many have had fun with the M1 or hope to?
