There is no sound like forty men slapping the upper handguard of an M1 rifle in unison!

That is pretty awesome. I am too much of a sissy to do that with any of my guns. I give them mad respect.

I was gonna say if you are going to toss one away..... toss it my way!

Awesome video. I personally would prefer if the crowd would shut the hell up and listen to the music of the drill, but nevertheless it is a cool video.
