    I think it would. That bullet is striking the grenade (and detonating it) while the pressure is still high in the barrel. With the added energy from an explosion on the end of the barrel it could...

    Nope. Bad practice IMO. All my training (24 years just on the Army side) dictated if in a "Hot Zone" and on a little stand down time, personal weapons (rifle/pistol) can and should be loaded and...

    Remember the citation for each medal for valor is quite specific. And like an evaluation report it is written by the recommender for that specific medal. I made our state Sergeant Major mad once....

    There was this movie with Clint Walker, None But the Brave, and an M1 Carbine looks like a BB gun in his hand.

    I was an Army guy, but I know Chesty Puller when I see him. He deserved at least one Medal of Honor but he just ****ed people off above him.

    Horrors! I love biscuits and gravy. Though we don't eat out too much anymore B&G has always been a favorite.

    Once I was tasked with training and firing four other soldiers with the AT4 anti-tank rocket. I'd never even seen one before so I sat down and read the book cover to cover. They had to fire from a...

    I doubt that the bomb was dropped from a "Betty" type bomber. The "Betty" was a land based aircraft and the Japanese had no occupied territory where a "Betty" could fly that far. I believe the bomb...

    At the end of WWII in Germany there were plenty of armed 13 year old kids with rifles and Panzerfausts. The same thing is happening today in Africa and the middle east. We don't get smarter and...

    Mortar rounds come in a cardboard tube. Those tubes are packed in a wooden crate. So no, those big tubes have nothing to do with 60mm mortars.

    The card board shipping tube for ammunition for larger caliber weapons. Artillery bigger than 155 I'd guesstimate. But those 60's look pretty close to that wall to me. Bouncing a mortar round off the...

    Anybody that pays $99.95 for a reproduction M-1 carbine sling needs his head examined.

    Last year I helped a friend and club member to sell a CMP acquired M1D, it was a "nice" rifle. He sold it and I didn't buy it because we are both left handed. And from the day it was bought from the...

    Not my error, that list came from a site dedicated to the sale of M1 parts and clips and that is their list of manufacturers.

    **Note that most WW2 produced clips were used on post war production ammo as many were excess at the end of WWII or were reused by depots. IS coded clips are a good example as they were only produced...

    You'd be thinking right Ed. Ammo was distributed throughout the entire squad. Everyone packed more than standard issue for a rifleman. The M60 AG could only pack so much.

    My first issued rifle was an M16E1 made by General Motors Hydramatic Division. My last rifle was an M4 Carbine made by Fabrique National. I'm pretty sure I know the differences between them and the...

    Most of that has nothing to with the subject at hand, which is the M1 Carbine and what it can be chambered for. And just asking, but if .22 caliber hi-velocity cartridges are so bad why has virtually...
