or use GI ammo in one, or the most commonly encountered commercial round, or carrying 500 rds for it, or using it one handed, asyou drive, ride a horse, or bike, run a boat, etc. :)

Again,I don't see your logic.I'd think that you'd want to mount a platform on it.Think mini grill.It'll probably take all of 500 rounds to thoroughly cook a CAN of soup.You might get the hot dogs done faster though if you strap 'em to the muzzle or put 'em where the upper handguard goes.
Now if your really serious then I'd just recommend putting your CAN(s) on the trucks exhaust manifold.That'll do a much better job than sticking it on a poor rifle.
Use the right tool doncha know.:wavey:

That's right M1's a pretty poor tool for

anything these days. 50 years ago, for a the guy who did NOTHING but play soldier boy,it was ok, but it's been quite inferior at the job, for many decades now.

The 30-06 round is available on every continent, with the possible exception of antartica.

You keep trying to define everything in terms of your narrow view of requirements.

Guess what, you're right about ccw or putting a can on the garand.

but also guess what?

who cares - not everyone shares your OPINION on gear or shtf. Not everyone is as dependant on everything going exactly their way.

You have zero flexibility.

I would have no problem whatsoever if I had to face shtf with a .223, a .308, or a garand.

if I was stuck with an 11" car, the first thing I'd try and do is get a better full sized .223 so as not to limit the effectiveness of the weapon.

To say that the garand has no value is a pretty ignorant statement. Just like to say that the .223 is the ultimate is also an ignorant statement.

It isn't a one size fits all world. everyone will choose according to a number of factors, including what they simply like.

that's the way it works, that's reality. And prattling on about the can and the .22 unit is just your OPINION.

doesn't make it right, doesn't make it wrong, just makes it your OPINION.

period.

say hello to 223 fan when you see him next.

223 fan said:
TRY mounting can on Garand,
You're right there, but some people don't have to rely on a crutch.

or ccw one
You won't CCW an AR either. If you try to, you won't get it reassembled in time (probably won't even get it out of your drawers TO reassemble in time)

or use GI ammo in one,
No, not .223, but you CAN get .308 Garands, so you CAN use that GI round. Also, you'd be hard pressed to find any store that sells ammo that DOESN'T carry .30-06.

or the most commonly encountered commercial round,
No, but turning your primary fighting weapon into a less reliable rimfire, in a SHTF situation, is stupid.l

or carrying 500 rds for it,
Of course you only want to carry 80 rounds, so unless you're a complete weakling, you can carry as much .30-06 as you plan on carrying .223.

or using it one handed, asyou drive, ride a horse, or bike, run a boat, etc. :)
Of course, using an AR, especially a completely destroyed, hacked up POS with a 11.5" barrel (oops, down to 10" now) that way, you won't hit anything, so who cares if you can fire the Garand in a way in which you won't hit anything, with any rifle?

It has been 16 years since this thread was started and one thing we never considered back at the time was how both governments in North America are trying very hard to ban AR's. Up here the government has banned use of over 1,500 models and variants of firearms while they establish a "buy back" program. Since AR's are registered up here, and have been for over 30+ years, the government already knows whose houses to visit if the are not turned in.

May people are looking for alternate firearms for 3 gun matches and such, the Garand is still seen as a politically correct rifle. Yes it does have its limitations but in AO's where you have lots of open space, it is a good alternative. Melvin, you need to accept reality of what the left is trying to do us. Simple fact, if they want my AR, I'll sell it back to them. I will then take the money and invest it in a firearm to replace it. Mean while I will do everything that I can to maintain my rights and privileges regarding firearms. Its only a rifle Melvin, it can be replaced. Look where breaking the law got you Melvin. The important this is that you have firearms available for the purposes you require them for regardless of the discipline.

Yet they will still kill you dead. Are they the best tool? No, but they shouldn’t be discarded out of hand.
