M1903 A3 Springfield Bolt Action Rifle[]

The M1903 A3 is the primary weapon used in JROTC drill activities. It weighs approximately 8 LBS, and is non functional as a firearm. It is unable to fre due to concrete or other substances placed into the barrel to prevent firing. Plus, the magazine well is permanately shut.

M1 Garand[]

The M1 Garand is not used often at Carver, but there is one [which is not real] in the Armory. This was the primary weapon used by US forces in WWII along with the M1928A1 Thompson Sub Machinegun.

Both of the above are always referred to as 'weapons', and on occasion as 'rifles'. Never call them a 'gun'.
