Saturday Morning Johnson Blogging

I was watching Gunny Ermey giving a history of infantry rifles last night on 'Lock N' Load' and this oddball weapon came up.

Johnson M1941 semiautomatic rifle (USA)

See a close-up of the magazine and loading arrangement here.

So why do I bring this up? The thing was a piece of crap. As the lady who runs the historical armory at MCB Quantico said on the show:

"You'll never find a Marine who says he likes a Johnson."

I just couldn't let a line like that go to waste!
