. I never used it for anything serious but had fun shooting glass insulators off the abandon power or phone line between Dong Tam and Tan An.

The ARVNs used a lot of .38 specials. I traded a couple "C" rations cases for a couple a 50 cal cans of 38 Spl ammo.

I am surprised some on hasn't mentioned https://www.vintagegunscopes.com/ for old scopes.

Been a while since I did business with them. They seemed like a decent operation at the time. Picked up a Weaver 6X AO and put it on my 700 VLS and killed coyotes with it.

I see and read the flyers they put out, on occasion, neat to see those old scopes and be able to still purchase them, if a person wanted.

This reminds me of an old friend, now deceased. He was an Aussie Commando during WWII fighting the Japs in New Guinea. He told me one day when I asked him about what weapons he used and said he used an M1 carbine. I was a bit surprised by this and asked him where he not only got it from but how the hell did he get ammo ???? We didn't use the M1 so no ammo through Aussie stores. Said he swapped his SMLE 303 for the carbine and whenever a new arrival of Americans turned up he would just walk amoungst them asking for ammo. He said those GI's were the most generous blokes going. Would give him as much as he wanted. I also asked why the little M1 and his reasoning was that when they came under attack he could get off three rounds as he was diving for the ground.
