I use a coffee mug like this (or the M1 Garand, or M1911A1, or M1 Carbine coffee mug) every morning. It brightens my day to start with hot coffee and a beautiful outlook on life! Simply go to my M14 page and scroll down to the bottom. Link: http://www.nicolausassociates.com/m14.htm.
Department of the Army Pamphlet No. 23-2, 7 January 1959, M1 Garand. 74 pages, front to back, covering instruction, coaching, holding, aiming, zeroing, positioning, trigger squeeze, and rapid firing the M1 Garand service rifle. This manual consists of numerous pictures and cartoon-like illustrations to help the shooter understand the fundamentals of shooting the M1 Garand.
