M1 Garand semiautomatic Rifle with leather M1917 sling - .30-06

The M1 Garand was the main battle rifle for the US forces in World War II and the Korean War. It would be a great weapon of choice when in a zombie offensive situation; World War II soldiers said it was the only friend they could trust to keep them alive, and they respected and honored their M1 Garands. Being a semi-automatic, the rifle can be fired quickly, without having to cycle a bolt. Although it does have a tendency to jam in boggy and muddy conditions, the M1 Garand is very accurate, reliable, has a lot of stopping power, and can also be used as a melee weapon (during World War II, Allied soldiers used the rifle's buttstock to bash in the skulls of Imperial Japanese Army banzai chargers). The M1 Garand is a good hunting weapon; it can kill any North American game from bear to deer to moose. On the weapon, the 8-round ammunition clip pops out when the clip is emptied making a loud ping. The rifle's .30-06 (pronounced "thirty aught six") round is also sold at many stores, as it is a common caliber used for hunting. It could easily tear straight through a zombie's head. The disadvantages of the weapon are its weight, limited ammo capacity at 8 rounds, the clip popping out with an audible ping.

The M1 Garand is recommended for use in medium to long range engagement, where its adjustable sight will bring an advantage. The rifle can also do well in short range engagement, however be aware that when clearing buildings the length of the weapon would be a disadvantage, as it can be grabbed by the undead or the living.
