So, I was out at the range today with a good friend and observed something I had read about, think I have seen discussed here, but never actually seen before: a Garand doubling when firing.
The long and the short of it is that my Garand doubled while my friend was shooting it. I went online to check out causes, although my suspicion was that he had the luck or misfortune (depending upon your point of view) to have dropped the hammer on a round with a slightly raised primer. It seems that the Garand equivalent of limp wristing can cause a double to occur, but, since I doubt that was the case, I'm convinced that a slightly raised primer on one of my reloads was the cause. I inserted another clip immediately after and fired it off without incident, so I don't think the rifle was to blame. For what it's worth, it was pretty cool to be there when it happened...So F U Wendy and all the rest of you sundry assorted gun control halfwits; I had fun.
