I chose the M1 Carbine over either the 9mm, or .45 carbine. I got 'em from the CMP. Nice light carbines. I use for Coyote, feral cats and dogs and any other light game in season. Though I have taken to using a Desert Eagle in .357 magnum I am not beyond taking a M1 Carbine with me. At Bow and Arrow distance I think the M1 Carbine could be relied upon to do the job on Whitetail Deer.
