I just want to know which rifle you would prefer if you were fighting for the U.S. during the second world war. For Europe I would prefer a M1 Garand rifle. I would prefer a M1 carbine if I was fighting Japan. Although I know that soldiers (or at least most) didn't know if they were going to be sent to the European or Pacific theater. Please tell me which you would prefer. (Also, please don't tell me "I would want a M1A1 Thompson", that is not what I'm asking).
