Hi, I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. My dad is military so we have moved around quite a bit. We have always been WW2 fans and gun guys. We have a small collection of surplus rifles in the mainland, hopefully will be back in about a year.

Just wanted to increase my knowledge on the M1 Carbine. It's my favorite rifle, followed by the .45-70. Ever since I was 7 I have been shooting the M1 Carbine, however we did not have a gun range so it was just an every other week/every other few weeks type thing. Not as much as I would have liked, but we made up for the missed days by emptying hundreds of rounds.

I think my favorite thing about the M1 Carbine is the history and controversy. Myths, legends, and stories surround the gun. That is what I like, there is always something to look into. The different variants also are pretty interesting. I didn't start looking into the history until a year ago, haven't even stepped into the different factories yet.

In that case I'll recommend the "War Baby" series by Ruth. They are a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Welcome to the forum.
