    Had some fun yesterday...

    I qualified to carry a weapon while on civil guard in my town in Israel. We qualified with what looked to me to be a Saginaw M1 Carbine. I had to fire 10 shots at a target that was about 50 yards away.

    I grouped all 10 in a tight group but all the shots were to the upper right of the target. So I guess the sights might have needed to be adjusted.

    So now when we do civil guard/neighborhood watch patrols, I can carry either the carbine or another weapon that the police have available.

    My Mom probably had a hand in building your rifle. She worked in the Gun Plant here in Saginaw during WWII.

    I am glad she did a good job. She is 86 now and has slowed down some, not much, but some.

    Stay safe.

    If the need arises that you must use your shooting skills may you shoot quickly and accurately.

    You couldnt get an AR or a Galil?

    The carbine is better than nothing, but its yesterdays technology. Lots of better stuff to fight a war with.

    BC, I thought you guys are issued M4s or Uzis in your country when you turn 18. just kidding...

    out of curiosity, how many rounds are you issued with your M1 when you use it with your official duties? I've been in some third world countries where they issue this to civilian auxiliaries along with vintage BARs and M1 Garands.

    What? You openly carry firearms for self defense? What's the world coming to?

    I gotta break down and get one of those carbines one day. Keep a sharp eye out for the BGs!
