The questions do inspire me to wonder how folks from other countries would respond? How would someone who was on the receiving end of a Garand respond (if they could)?
What would the opinions of British, Canadian, Austrailian, or other Allied soldiers be? Same for Axis soldiers.
If you're participating in the forum internationally, let's hear your thoughts...

.303 SMLE,10 shot mag can be reloaded any time compared to the Garand,can use the Vickers ammo or the Bren gun ammo as well,great rate of fire being voted as THE best battlefield rifle on the Discovery Channel's best battlefield rifles of WW2 ahead of the Kar 98 because it only had a 5 shot mag.
The SMLE also came in a Jungle Carbine version with the same 10 shot mag and a bit shorter in length but it could still drop a enemy soldier at 600yds.
