    Apparently the reserves still use M1icon carbines, M60's and finally, the grand old Cadillac of them all, Garands for target work and marksmanship training, now that shows a certain class to me...

    On a wider note in the early 90's, they were certainly still using M113 APC's and UH1 Hueys, I remember seeing both in use around Tan Son Nhut.

    I think a few Chinooks were still operational at that time, parked on the old military dispersal apron and appeared to still be airworthy.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.
