It shouldn't take a video. Anybody familiar with the Garand can tell you that there isn't enough room, with a full clip, to get your thumb in there.
You'd think, but....
You'd be surprised how often I hear this myth on various gun fora.
I did not get to see the original post, but I always figured thumbs were in the most danger when closing the bolt on an unloaded M1....and it is a *strong* spring.
Freakin' hilarious bro, thanks. I needed that.
The thumb, that opposable digit that helps seperate (some of) us from the apes
the instrument relied upon by hitchikers around the world
It used to signal life or death for a vanquished gladiator
it allows the playing of dozens of electronic game devices
a valuable part in the pitching of a baseball
but it absolutely, positively should not be used to muffle the sound of the bolt closing on the M-1 Garand.
