US Marine lets loose with his M1918 Browning Auto Rifle somewhere in the Pacific. Chambered for the .30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge, the M1918 was the light auto weapon at platoon level that was supposed to be deployed in a “walking fire” mode — blasting from the hip. In practice, the M1918 was mostly fired with the help of its bipod or like a conventional rifle, provided the shooter could withstand the recoil.
