Well built, kicks less than a S&W 500 revolver for obvious reasons, fits a 6'7" lineman of the Oakland Raiders better than it does my 6' scrawny ass
Expensive to shoot, campy, mystical, somewhat historical, and I don't think there was one in the movie Fargo, though I've driven from Fargo to the twin cities (though I believe they are now made in Israel but I could be wrong) once.
Best used to shoot malignant, narcissistic clowns and hay-wire elephants

I had a custom shop .41 mag Desert Eagle with a 12" barrel on it, used it for hunting (took my first whitetail with it). It was a cool gun, but the pimp-factor is off-the-charts with "Deagles".

Once I saw the first gold one, and three homeboys pointing and grunting at it in the local funstore, I knew the shark tank had been jumped hard.

The new trends in weaponry tech is fookin' mindblowing. But I'll still keep a good ol' .45 on my hip, just in case

.30 M1 Carbine ?

I'm thinking of getting a .30 M1 Carbine from the CMP. Anybody got one? What's your opinion of it? Ammo availibility/cost ? Accuracy?

Heavy as a tank, not all to accurate, can't find (good affordable) holsters for them, they are hard to shoot for most because of the ergos, as in BIG. Never liked them.

Me too .. I was wondering how they pack the powder in between the bullets to obtain the right pressure needed to propel the round downrange.The box design cant be too accurate but this technology is going to get better I am sure. Heckler & Koch has done some work on caseless ammunition in the past.

Ever tried the FBI Thumbs Forward grip? Adopting that grip ended the muzzle flip issue I'd experienced with the .40 cal. P229 I've carried for the past 13 years. Sig's DAK system replaces the decocker/safety you disliked. Give it a try, if you haven't already done so.

I'm partial to this. Custom 7x57mm on a 1909 Argentine Mauser action.

If you are getting a CMP gun I'd recommend the Garand rather than the carbine. The ammo for the carbine isn't all that plentiful compared to 30-06. You really have only one loading and that's a 110 grain slug of whatever flavor (ball, hp or sp) there is. It's not really cheap stuff now. It's not known for accuracy or effectiveness in the field. It was a replacement for a pistol so you could hit something at farther than touching range.

The carbine is a hoot to shoot and does have some history if you already own the Garand. It's great for smaller folks to shoot and is handy but given a choice of a M1 Carbine or even an SKS and I'd go with the SKS. Far better round and just as handy.
