But I got to hold an M1 Garand last weekend, ran through the manual of arms ...
- That is a well-made, solid, machine, brother.
- I want one.
- The difference between my M16 (7 pounds unloaded) and an M1 ( 9 1/2 pounds unloaded ) was surprising. As in 'whoa, that sucker is heavy'.
- I get the Baby Boom, now.
After lugging an M1 all over the damned world, over beaches, up the hilly willies and down the hilly willies ... GI Joe was a buff mother-f*cker.
Mary Jane from back on the block just couldn't help herself.
