Garand Thumb - Imgur
Some of you might have heard the term “Garand-Thumb” or “M1-Thumb”. That is the name for when the bolt of an M1 Garand slams closed on your thumb. A Garand-Thumb often occurs when you try to close the bolt on an empty magazine. To close the bolt on an unloaded M1 Garand you need to push down on the magazine follower before the bolt can close, and if your finger doesn’t get out of the way in time it’ll be caught. Often people will get a Garand-Thumb because the bolt has not been pulled fully to the rear. When the bolt is to the rear it is locked in place by the bolt catch and won’t be released until you relieve the pressure on it. However if you don’t manage to get the bolt all the way back it might rest on the magazine follower instead of the bolt-catch, and it might slam shut without warning.

High-Speed footage of a Garand-Thumb.

Here is a clip of me purposely giving myself a Garand-Thumb, recorded at 1200 frames per second. As you can see, the bolt was resting on the follower and released as soon as I touched it with my thumb.



Not being completely satisfied with the previous clip, I recorded one more. Don’t try this at home (unless you are recording it)




Here is what the clip looks like in real time, to give you an idea of how suddenly the bolt can slam shut.


Garand thumb is no joke. I had my Saiga-12 close on my thumb during a competition while loading a single shell. The extractor went into my thumb a bit. I finished the round but got blood all on my gear. these gifs hurt to look at.

The Extreme Domestic Abuse Experiment!!

People joining in with the domestic abuse of males is so highly fucked up. It needs to stop. Fighting for the equality of male victims does NOT detract from feminism AT ALL.

Feminism = equal treatment of both sexes.

Stop making out feminism to be bad because you don’t understand it.

"Fighting for the equality of male victims does NOT detract from feminism AT ALL."

You might want to tell the VAWA that. It uses the Duluth Model.

As of 2006, the Duluth Model is the most common batterer intervention program used in the United States.[2] It is based in feminist theory positing that “domestic violence is the result of patriarchal ideology in which men are encouraged and expected to control their partners”.[2]

Yup, there’s grate eqwaleetee theeer.

You know what equality would look like? Gender neutral laws. I can’t think of any time Feminists have fought for that when it might result in disadvantaging women.


Feminists threaten to kill woman for saying men need abuse shelters.
Feminists shut down forum for battered husbands.


What happens when men try and talk about their problems? They are shouted down with loudspeakers, and then fire alarms and bomb threats.




I admit it. Feminist are right, inequality does exist, and its created, upheld, and perpetuated by feminist.
