The officers liked the Carbine, as it was much lighter to carry in combat.
Last week, i attended our Army Reunion here near Pittsburgh, Pa. The Re-enactors had a alarge display of Army weapons and equipment set out on tables, so i went in to look at it.
Well, i must have been a whole lot stronger than i am now, because the M-1, Garand rifle, felt like it weighed a ton! But, i carried one across most of France, and never thought it was that heavy! Same goes for our packs, ammo belts, and everything else we had slung on our bodies, including a canteen, light field pack, and our "possibles" bag! That bag contained a gsa mask when we first got it, but very soon, the gas mask got ripped out and other things got stuffed into it! Very good for carrying K-ration boxes. Folks ask how we could possibly have eaten the things that came in those K-Rations. When you are hungry-they looked and tasted like Filet Mignon!
