locked and loaded

  • John Wayne said "Lock and load" because that is the procedure used for readying an empty M1 Garand for action, not because he said it backwards. In order to prepare the weapon for firing, the bolt must first be "locked" back to the rear so that the en bloc clip can be "loaded" into the fixed magazine. Once the clip is inserted, the bolt snaps forward on its own as soon as thumb pressure is released from the top round of the clip, chambering a round and leaving it ready to fire.
