I actually used that holster for my issue Browning 9mm, when I deployed to the Middle East in the late '70's.
To me the M1 Garand is like the 1886 winchester - I think they're both beautiful, capable rifles, but I just have no interest in one. Not knocking it at all, a guy with either one could kill me; but they're just heavier than I like for their respective types of guns.There is still something about an M- Garand. The two I bought from CMP were well worth the money. And hey, I have a GI Tankers holster just like that.
Some of us know for a fact what we can carry, because unlike you, we do it. People have survived far worse than a single .22 long before modern medicine.what's the point of having a rifle that's not used for anything but big game? Don't you want to know if your loads are adequate? How about if you really CAN lug around the 60+ lbs of bs that you "think" you want to carry if shtf. you 'think" that 223's just bounce off of you at 400 yds, but they wont, I can assure you. Nor will subsonic 60 gr .22's at 100 yds. The fact is that ONE .22 in you, shtf, and it's all over but the crying, dude. To "think" you'll be out there, hunting, with a noisy gun in daylight, is pure bs. To do so will be the end of you. Get real and put some armor into your BOB, cause most people WILL have nothing more than a pistol, pistol caliber carbine, .30 carbine, muzzle loader, pellet rifle, arrows with target points, .22, shotgun, all of which 5 lbs of concealable armor will stop. 15 lbs and $1500 of rifle rated armor make no sense for shtf, but pistol armor does. You won't be using the rifle armor, cause it's just too damned hot and heavy, but you CAN use the pistol armor. I"m probably the only one that would bother to make a set of kevlar boxers, but anyone can get a kevlar vest, $200 or so. I"ve done personal testing and they last FAR longer than the maker's 10 year "limit", if they've not been removed from their plastic seal. Getting them wet or letting them get sunlight on them will weaken them, and sooner rather than later. because of the uncertainty of the armor's effectiveness, kevlar vests often go for very low prices.
So you start a post insulting the general reader? Good strategy for appearing knowledgeable. Great way to get people to take you seriously. Can you really be this clueless?John, i KNOW you know the facts. I dont bother to post anything (other than the occasional jibe) for those 2 twits. I mainly write to the general reader, nobody in particular. I couldn't care less what those 2 twits waste their time and money on. In fact, I hope it gets worse!
Bipod only? Fucks sake how fucking out of shape are you in IGMO?the 308 is a travesty, really, cause it's just a bipod only clunk when it's canned, and to not have a can will be the height of stupidity, if shtf.
