I just got the opportunity to watch "America's Rifle - The M1 Garand" documentary produced by the Garand Collectors Association. This was sent to me by the GCA as part of my regular membership, but I would have gladly paid for it.
What a fine piece of work. They did right by rifle, and by those who used and depended on it. If you're a fan of the gun, this isn't to be missed. The stories are told by those who actually shot it in combat... to see them cycle it, shoulder it, hold it, show how to avoid "M1 Thumb"... outstanding, and humbling.
And its full of neat little tidbits too. I thought I knew a lot about these guns, but I still learned several new things I hadn't known before.
