This is a close stereo recording of a M1 Garand blast with echoes.
You have to know one important thing: in my country, military weapons are extremely prohibited. Thereby, I'm forced to record some audio from videos, on YouTube, about weapons (for gunshots). Afterwards, I clean and improve the recorded sound, with filters, reverbs, compressors/limiters, etc...
In brief, this sound was not really field-recorded by me, but recorded from a YouTube video. However, I think I did a very nice work on the sample (I added some stereo echoes, impact/blast and removed some ugly background noises, for example). So, I wanted to share the result with the Freesound Community.

Reminder: I'm NOT the owner of the original/raw source!
