Thanks samD

very interesting i love the BAR

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Fine weapon

They're really heavy after you carry one for a few hours.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

Another great video..

The 1918 has always been one of my favorites.. What i didn't know was that uncle John came up with this in 3 months.. What a guy.. I believe the Marines continued to use the BAR till like 65 or so, when it was replaced by the M60.. For some reason they always picked the little guy to hump this big boy..talked to a lot of "sawed off" ex marines they all said the same thing.. The smallest guy would get picked to carry the 1918.. or base plates for the morter.. Whats the story here, sure its not an accident, and ive heard it so many times there must be truth to it..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
