    i am too damned old to squat down like that!! i like to shoot the old warrior offhand with sling. i have a match garand with enough goodies to be illegal for the john c. garand match, if anybody looks.

    The instructions are probably outdated anyway.

    How many people can afford an M1 Garand, or the equivalent?

    I do think it is incumbant on anyone who owns a rifle to learn how to shoot it properly.

    When I learned to shoot in basic training we shot the old M16A1's, which I believe is an excellent rifle and round, and although it is underpowered compared to the .308, it is able to fire more rounds than a .308 in the same amount of time.

    Just my .02
