or was, in the 60's, for the so-wonderful garand? THIRTY inches? How many 30" ricefarmers or goatherders are there? Sort of tells you how effective the M1 ACTUALY is at such ranges, eh? They have to make the target SEVEN times bigger than it really is, or nobody could reliably hit it and they might have to actually be ready for the reality of combat, ie, most shots miss the enemy even it FIFTY yards, cause the enemy is using cover, using darkness, smoke, dust, snow, dodging, firing BACK and your ears are blown out, your buddy's brains are dripping down your face and you're freaked out beyond believe.
