I've always found it funny that the 1931 Officer Handbook lists in great detail the best method to employ the BAR, the Springfield '03, and even the Platoon Leader's 1911A1, and yet at the time M-1 Garand was being stonewalled.
Every thing listed in said Officer's Guide, with the exception of the rifle was semi-automatic, but giving average Private Dogface a semi-automatic rifle will suddenly lead to a tremendous expenditure of ammunition?
