You're right there, but some people don't have to rely on a crutch.223 fan said:TRY mounting can on Garand,
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 ccw 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 use GI ammo in one,
No, but turning your primary fighting weapon into a less reliable rimfire, in a SHTF situation, is stupid.lor the most commonly encountered commercial round,
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 carrying 500 rds for it,
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?or using it one handed, asyou drive, ride a horse, or bike, run a boat, etc.
I stole your sig line for other places, hope it is ok.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.
say hello to 223 fan when you see him next.
Yet they will still kill you dead. Are they the best tool? No, but they shouldn’t be discarded out of hand.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.
