I actually used that holster for my issue Browning 9mm, when I deployed to the Middle East in the late '70's.

To me the M1 Garand is like the 1886 winchester - I think they're both beautiful, capable rifles, but I just have no interest in one. Not knocking it at all, a guy with either one could kill me; but they're just heavier than I like for their respective types of guns.

For that matter, not knocking all heavy guns either. I have a heavy-barrelled AR in 223 Wylde with a nice Zeiss scope on it and a heavy-barrelled .308 bolt action savage, both of which I like a lot.

Geographical area, 365 day temperature fluctuations, ranges encountered, bullet variety, federal firearms laws, availability & combat reputation have all contributed to making a decision.

As for my 14.5" AR, I see it mainly as a 150-200 yd defensive weapon.
