Number of carbine pouches???
« on: August 26, 2008, 02:17:37 PM »
What is the proper number of M1 carbine ammo pouches for a Marine impression?
I've herd either 2 or 3????
1 on the stock and the other(s) on the web belt....

I do a US Ranger impression, and I use 2 on the stock, and 2 on the web gear. I'm not sure about Marines though, we only do the European theater in my area. I would maybe check out Marine field handbooks from WW2 and see what the standard issue kit was.
