id love to own one someday.
as a product of WWII I have always loved them. But I love to shoot what I have and these are all 50 or more years old now.
Neat thing about the 30 carbine is you can take it to the indoor ranges as well.. Not much of a round, but i guess it served it purpose.. made it thru three wars..
love to have one of these...
.30 Carbine, and the .06 Gerand, I lust after both, my brotherin law had a .30 Carbine.
Then like the dummy i am i went and bought a blackhawk so i could have a pistol in the same caliber.. (i know, i was young and little on the slow side) .. One of the fondest memorys of mine was i had a bunch of 30 round magazines, couple of 15's but the 30's were a hoot to bump fire with.. Not to hard to change the sear out and convert to an M2 either..you dont have the selector switch.. but sure would be fun..

I always wanted to buy him a 30 but being a poor boy I never did
He is still alive (87) but not so interested any more.
He tells some good stories. He was walking with 2 buddies
bent over to light a cig and both buddies got killed. He says that
cig saved his live
raffy, I was shooting a couple weeks ago. An older gentlemen had one and was doing pretty good with it. I just stood back and watched for some reason I didn't feel like I should bother him.
like you were being very respectful
Hey CW. That is exactly why I stayed back. How are ya bud?
doin ok feel like a stuffed turkey
rainy and cold so wife cooked a
big pot of pinto beans with sausage
cornbread and potato salad
Damn that sounds good! I havent had a good home cooked meal in a very long time!!
Making me hungrey.. Got to tell you guys about something that happened to me back in the early 80's with a carbine.. I was a little "youthfull" so i did the whole customize thing to mine, put on a folding wire stock like an M2 has, and all sorts of "goodies".. So im shooting at the end door range, and im playing.. not really trying to get tight groups.. Just half serious.. So the manager who was an old korean vet. He's bout my age now, as this is 25+ years ago.. Takes the carbine, and procedes to fire this one hole group with it...I've got them sprayed all over the paper. He says, humble.. "yep, thats a good piece".. it was sorta tuck tale time..

You were talking about the sights on your new SA, and how narrow they are...i wish i could take a pic of the ones on the old Colt...you can see the gun by clicking the geezer..this is the one thats the pre positive i have to carry 5 rounds in.. anyway i promise you the sight blade and the notch are maybe like 1/16 of an inch... REAL narrow. no way i can see em..

Never have been much for optics on pistols tho, so what ever...
