Changes And News
: It's been a long time since we did any M1 Garand Site updates. I went to
most every page on the site and tuned the language and headers a bit.
- 2004: Added a Frequently Asked Questions section
- 2003: Added a 'basic data' statistics sidebar to the main page and moved
some things around on that page.
August - 2003:
This site was beginning to get out of control with the addition of more and
more non-M1 Garand related stuff, so I have decided to break things up a little
bit. Everything that you once knew is still here, it may just be moved around
a bit. Please feel free to use the SEARCH
THIS SITE link in order to find links to whatever you may be looking for.
of what was once on the front page that is not related DIRECTLY to the M1 Garand
can now be found on the General Firearms Page.
- 2003: Have made a minor update the Gun Control
Humor section in that I took off the old firearm related header and sidebar
and given it a bright coat of pink paint. Someday we will redo the graphics for
January - 2003: After a LONG
time of saying I would do so I have finally converted over the "Our
Garands" and "Ammunition" sections
of the site from the old look to the new one. I also added several notes as I
went along but left it pretty much as I wrote it in 1999 and 2000. I did make
some technical corrections to the html which will make the site flow better. There
are also some additional highlights and cartouche information etc...
- 2002: Have added a couple more items to the books
and movies page.
August - 2002: MAJOR
CHANGES!. We are very pleased to announce that for
the second time this year the Civilian Marksmanship Program has decided to obtain
portions of this website for their own.
Little Site History
one of the staff members of MemorablePlaces Consulting
obtained an M1 Rifle from the CMP and created a small website to show it off to
his online friends. One thing led to another and by March of 2000 "The
M1 Garand Rifle An American Companion In Three Wars" site was complete.
More details can be found on the Credits
page and the Behind The Scenes Page.)
The "American Companion" site later
became known to many in the community simply as "Charles M1 Newbie Page"
or "Charles M1 Newbie Site" because of the fact that this website
depicted many many things that new users of M1 Garand rifles need to know. This
included a detailed field stripping section, a detailed nomenclature section,
an accessories section and much more. The site was
extremely popular among those who were new to the M1 rifle and to those who just
enjoyed the photographs.
In March of 2002 the
CMP became interested in part of the site and purchased all online
rights and responsibilities for the Nomenclature
sections of the site. This expanded the CMP site by roughly 100 pages and made
the CMP even more of a web-destination than they were before. Just this month
(August 2002) The CMP returned to MemorablePlaces and purchased all of the rights
and responsibilities for the last major portion of the M1 Newbie site namely the
sections on Field
Stripping, and Re-Assembly
of the M1 Garand Rifle.
increased the CMP's website by nearly another 100 pages and countless photographs.
