The M-1 "Ga-rand" was the weapon my dad used to fight the Japanese in the Philippines during the 2nd world war. When I was a boy he had an M-1 carbine. Don't ask me how he got it. I just remember him letting me play with it, supervised of course. The main thing I remember about it was it was extremely heavy. Someone broke into our home when I was just a little kid and stole it among other things. But they didn't get the shells. These I just found in a big box of stuff packed away years ago. Thought they looked kinda cool so here they are. (it's a "guy thing")
Oh, and by the way. I'm not the one who made the small corner tear to one of the two boxes to what it appears is to access the shells. Kinda sad one box has this damage. I know they won't get in any worse shape as long as I have them in my possession.
