My wife was taking some pics of me shooting one of my Garands on our range and got this one. The last shell casing is visible ejecting at the top front of the picture and the en bloc can be seen ejecting to the rear just above/in front of my head.

I have 2 Garands. Both are Springfields. The one in the picture came from CMP - and is a June/July '44 production. My other is an April/May '43. They are both pictured here.

I still continue to look for the Springfield my Dad is holding in this picture - SN 2860035. This was taken while he was in Boot Camp at Parris Island in the summer of 1944.
