I kind of felt the same way when I came back from Vietnam..........My father never got over it, I did.

I didn't - why I never have, and never will, own an AR, AK, etc.


My research indicates that commercial .30 Carbine ammo showed up shortly after WWII, when the Chinese Nationalists (Kuomintang) began receiving US semi-auto rifles and carbines (until 1946-47)

The ammunition supplied with the guns was either (both) old wartime stock (Military headstamp) or new Manufacture ( commercial headstamp).
