Well, this guy claimed that everyone in the Army knew all about John C. Garand and that they almost always called the rifle by his name. I don't know how old he is, but in my experience no one old enough to have carried one called it anything but the "M1". The ones who call it a Garand seem to be the generations who never carried one and often have never actually seen one outside books.
