We were issued M1's in bootcamp (1967)  to carry until went to firing range (M14). Also dummy (not same as blank) rounds to familiarize us if the need arose in Vietnam.  Didn't get an M16 until spring of 1969.

I enlisted in 1984 and started with the M16A1, but I remember that out in the maneuver areas it was not at all uncommon to unearth empty M1 clips when digging about. Later graduated to the M16A2.  Never got a chance to handle the M4, but for a while was thinking abut buying a civilian version (Colt LE6920), but have reached a life stage now where I don't need any more stuff - - I need to get rid of stuff.

I used to get something similar from those itchy, scratchy wool blankets while I was in my bunk at night doing the deed...:biggrin_01:

M14 is a great weapon.
