Yea, Raffy I guess I don't talk enough. I've noticed there are alot of Chechosovakian porn stars lately...or....uh...I mean, you told me there were...yea, that's it....you'd think if you went to Czech, you be surrounded by a bunch of hot women, however, I bet if you went, they'd all look about as hairy as I am and just as handsome.

Raffy, Well, I don't think I'd let just any of them rape me. But a czech AK is awfully tempting. I've only held a m1 carbine at a gun show. I had a friend who had a M1 Garand and he let me borrow it for a while. I love that rifle. Very heavy though. It made me have a whole new respect for those guys in WWII lugging that thing around all the time.

That's cool. That's the other thing, if you can get one, they can have a great history to them. By the way, how did you post a picture in a forum on the other thread? I've tried to do that before and was unable. Maybe it's a feature that you can only obtain after hitting 1000 points.

M1 carbine

I hafta vote this as my fav for WWII guns. My father also used and admired his in Korea (full-auto version, M2 I think).

The M1 carbine hits a sweet spot for capacity, power, light weight and compactness. For a majority of engagements, military or otherwise, it is adequate and has power/range to spare when compared to pistol-cal subguns.

I'm thinking of getting the AO/Kahr tactical version....side folding syn stock w/rail. Mainly for the wife, but if she doesn't like it then woohoo I have a new gun!

Had one, mine was a Universal.. ran well, i bought a Ruger Blackhawk in 30 carbine to go with it, (was thinking of punching metal rams at the time) Didn't like the cartridge in the Ruger, but sure did like the rifle.. weight is always a factor and a 30 round magazine in 30 carbine is a lot lighter than an AK, or AR.. I had an underfolding stock on mine and closed down to nice size..

Another benny of the .30 carbine (obvious disadvantages) is most indoor ranges will let you shoot the round..

Why the Springfield over the Mauser? Just curious-- they're pretty similar and I always wonder what makes someone choose one over the other.

Hmmm true, but the Springfield basically used a Mauser action. I tend to group them into the same family, along with the FN and Austrian Mausers, as opposed to, I dunno, like the Lebels and Mosin-Nagants, which have a related mechanism.

The PPSH-41

It saved Stalin's Russia and probly the war. If the russians didnt have the ppsh-41 when nazi germany tried to take stalingrad, they could have broke through and who knows what would have happend. But The PPSH-41 is an amazing weapon, and I think it is not a recognized as it should be, i guess we all know of the m16 ond the 1911 cuz we live in america, but the ppsh-41 is a russian icon. Screw the AK, the ppsh is what I want
