How to Avoid “Garand thumb.”

Yes, indeedy. I’m talking about the dreaded & painful experience one gets when one loads up an M1 Garand rifle with John Garand’s notorious “en bloc” clip system.

Notice how is holding his hand? Make sure that y-o-u do it that way, too!

You try pushing those en-bloc clips in using any other method, you are probably going to get your thumb trapped between the bolt and the barrel because the very second that that clip is fully-home, the slide latch releases. Heh, heh, heh.

Mucho gracias to Old_Painless for the pic.
