One of my favorite tricks is to keep an empty clip in my pocket, somewhere during the fight, you take that empty clip out of your pocket and drop it or strike it against the action of the M1. When the fellow your shooting at hears that ‘pling’, he knows (thinks) you are down for a bit reloading, that’s when he’ll get stupid and you take him out…….during a fire fight NOBODY counts rounds expended.
Phy: The actual trick is a little different, in the “real” world. The Garand clip hold 8 rounds. You do keep an empty clip handy. Here’s the skinny. In a W/W II firefight the enemy is anticipating your reload and will expose himself for a better shot when you stop firing. Here’s the “trick.”
You fire only about six rounds out of the eight, and then toss down the empty clip on a hard surface so he hears it clank. When he pops up into the open you turkey shoot him between the eyes.
Basically that's what you said but I explained how it actually happens and not just how you think it happens. You're welcome.
With the variety today, it would be unlikely that the person you are firing at would know the intricacies of that rifle since it is no longer used by any military as their primary weapon. The range and accuracy of the weapon still makes it good for decent range sniping, rather than just throwing lead downrange to keep the enemy head down.
PHYDEAUX, CONTKMI, and SARGE, I think you are all regurgitating an old fable. The reality is that in a real firefight it is way too noisy to hear a clip drop in the middle of it all. And that also includes the particular "ping" sound made when the clip is ejected too.
Heisen: Let me clue you in. The empty clip is dropped during a PAUSE in the firefight. A PAUSE is when it's quiet enough to anticipate a reload and hear the "PING. I would also advise you, before you contradict your elders you should "PAUSE" and reflect that there's no substitution for experience and that a few of us have "been there and done that."
My father was a Marine in WWII. He fought his way through the Philippines and China using the Garand. He told me they would shoot 7 then quietly eject and palm the clip then reload. They would throw the empty clip and when it hit the Japs would attack. I asked him how they could hear it? He said it didnt make sense but they sure could. Dad said it, I believe it, and that settles it lol.
The original of this story is as follows:
During the early "island hopping" campaign in the PTO, when the '03A1 Springfield was still in use, Garand-carrying Marines would fire five rounds slowly, they hoping to catch a Japanese sniper unawares. When the enemy sniper popped up to fire, he thinking his target pausing to reload his '03, the gyrene would drop him with his remaining three rounds.
The M1's "ping" became the distinctive herald by which enemy troops knew their target held an empty rifle.
SARGE, "been there done that" myself. Even in the lull of action one's ears are still ringing from all the previous noise.
And I have talked with WWII vets who steadfastly debunked this myth too.
Gramps was in Europe. Based on his stories, I'm not sure the sound of an ejected clip was distinguishable in the chaos.
Maybe the islands were different, but he said it was unbelievably loud. Especially in the towns. Probably why he was mostly deaf.
Unless your familiar with the Garrand, most people wouldn't even know how to load it. It uses what's called a stripper clip, feeds through the breech.

The best thing about this, is there is one……at least she didn’t use one of them evil guns, just think how much worse this could’a been if she had’a used a gun, she could’a kilt 44 instead’a just injuren 44.
Count your blessings…….
and remember, your mileage may very…..
Better yet, how about 250 years (Even if they cut that in half for "good time", he's screwed.) without the possibility of parole or pardon...and the stipulation that when he dies, he gets cremated and his ashes get mixed into the concrete for the foundation of an outhouse.

I just wanna say that Beyonce did it better. - Kanye.
I too think she is one of the most vile pieces of garbage on the planet, but not because of her support of the fur industry.
Kardashian Book Signing
That only brings up two questions.
1) Is it a picture book?
2) Does she sign with a big X?
Time to take out my Fir coat
A friend educated me many many years ago on the subject.
"Vegetables are what food eats. And fish are fast vegetables."
One thing vegetarians never consider. Plants are living organisms too. So when they chop up and eat a carrot, are they not also killing it?
As for the definition of Murder, it means "the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another." Therefore killing an animal to consume it cannot be considered murder.
If we are not supposed to eat animals, then why are they made of meat??? LOL

I have two double action, semi autos. One is a Walther PPK/S, the other is a Beretta 90two. Both have hammers and safeties You could drop them, beat on them with a hammer or a rock or anything all day long and they WILL NOT discharge!
Know your weapons, know your surroundings, keep your wits about you, three excellent to stay safe.
Boy, it’s a good thing that the kid didn’t use one of those evil guns……he might’ve really hurt somebody…..

Several years ago in the area I live, Johnny Carino’s closed 11 places. The franchise owner was spending money faster than he could take it in, debtors and IRS yanked him up by the short curlies and he took the cowards way out and ate a 357 slug……
Some years ago a chain of mexican restaurants closed all but 2 places because of franchise issues and some employee lack of caring what kind of service the did.
All the while, local places, mom & pop places were doing fine. No higher wages, just better management……..except for one BBQ place where the parents gave the business to the kids, all they saw was the money. Went out and bought big boat, fast/fancy cars, Vegas trips, (obummer voters/supporters) almost wrecked the business, Mom and Pop took it back and it is doing fine now…..
If you don’t learn from history, you are sure to repeat it.

I really hope that Obummer gets off his a$$ and gets Pires and Rev AL and holder and the rest of the gun control crowd over there in his real home to do some gun control. He might have more luck than in Detroit or Chitown where the only thing he/they are interested in is expanding the voter fraud…….
The democrats will go as far as to let terrorist in our country as long as they can vote for them.

I remember when I was in high school (back when we had to watch TV by coal oil lamps) my bookkeeping teacher said that the IRS was, then, the only “thing” that operated outside the Constitution. You were presumed guilty and had to prove your innocence.
50 years later we have another three letter agency that has trashed the constitution……TSA. They ‘get to’ paw through EVERYTHING you have, even your pants and shirt, then they paw through your luggage and take whatever they want and sell it as additional income…….
I wish David would’ve used the TSA as the example for the Fourth Amendment.
