Re: No Subject M79

was a tanker with 1/4 cav 1st inf division 68-70.

all vehicles of the pltoon had m79s by aug 1969 the tankers used them mostly for H&I at night arround our laagers and especially in the rubber plantations

we called them 'thump' guns due to the noise made at firing

Replying to:

I am a collector of anything M79. I am an avid reader of nonfiction books about the vietnam war, particularly those discussing or showing soldiers using the m79. Anyone with any good sites, links, photos, mpegs, etc. having anything to do with the m79/40mm could you please let me know. or list on this message board. Also would be interested in a painted M79er miniature if anyone was selling one. Thanks, Cory
