...I've heard that redcoat targets will listen for that ping- and as soon as they hear it, they'll charge you while your reloading! Be careful.

Not a garand - carbine instead, so the ouch was not as bad.  It's ok, he was already flubbing the shot:

CMP Garands now start @ $630...and up.  Long way from $165 back in the day.
Will be giving out LAST printed CMP catalog (2013) @ Albany Gun Show starting this evening...
only on-line catalogs from then on.

 For participants in the Instructor Purchase Program - the 2015 Ruger list is out, and has expanded by about a third.  Send emails address for copies.

Excelsior,

for only practice will make you perfect.
Finally, you will hit the bulls-eye of success."

There was an old timer at an event once that talked about modifying his to hold an extra round. It would ping, the redcoats would charge, and everyone in his unit would shoot another round. The redcoats got hip to it and stopped charging after the ping.

He got courtmartialed for altering his issued equipment.  :slap:
