Thank you for educating me on the clips and M1 - appreciate it. I've heard the "ping" that you're talking about in a number of movies and figured that it went in with the rounds and ejected on the last shot but wasn't sure having never had any experience with the Garand. Thanks again - enjoyed the "tale" as well!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
