Why is 8 shots from a Garand .......... is considered sub-par for a "go-to" rifle by most people
The Garand IS NOT SUB-PAR
to any rifle.
If you get to the point you fired your "8" rounds you best be headed for or behind cover.............if not, then 80 rounds wont help you.
Any body who knows how to work a Garand knows that it takes a spit second to have another 8 rounds in the rifle and ready to go.
