Respect for 'The Greatest Generation'. Shoots good too.
My Dad and 6 Uncles depended on one of those things to get them home. They all came back physically whole and they're all gone now, but whenever I handle my DCM Garand, I think of them. Later on, it'll beat a shoebox of faded black/white photos that my Kiddos/Grand-Kids will never recognise.
Bread and Circuses don't pay the Bills.
