The instructions are probably outdated anyway.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
