    Hi all,
    In the last quiz I asked how the M1 Garand Clips were tested during the Endurance test. Ordnance testing in 1944 had one rifle per 5,000 riles do the Endurance test. Which was 6000 rds. The quiz is how was the test carried out, how was it setup?
    Have fun
    Thanks again

  2. The rifle was the first of the next set of 5000. It went next door the the ol brick building. Cooter Brown was hired to shoot the test rifle before his regular duties. He'd shoot 300 rounds a day and record the results.
    Hows that for a shot in the dark.
    How about some "Caddy Shack" questions.

    love the quizes, keep 'em comming.
