    Thanks MNBurl,

    Yeah, the .30 carbine round is considered weak, but that's when compared against a rifle round like the .30-06 and .308. I consider it very effective out to 100 meters.

I now have to wonder where all those inexpensive commercial model Carbines went, because all of those I see nowadays cost around $800-900. I wish I'd held on to one or more of the ones I had, to say nothing of the M-2 Carbine my father-in-law brought back from WW II in a duffel bag!
