Hey, don't laugh. Have you ever fell asleep while trying to rub one out? I didn't think so. A buddy of mine got a Major + in Florida phase for beating off. The RI caught him and asked him what in the Hell he was doing, and my buddy told him that he was trying to stay awake. The RI laughed his ass of...

I was always a fan of the jock strap and shower shoe combination. Why weigh yourself down? Afterall, speed is security. Right?

A lot of things have changed since I came home, so much of my answer may not be accurate in today's Regiment. First, I will answer your question about how long it takes to get the slot. I began my quest to be assigned to the sniper section my first week in Bat. I sought out the sniper section leader...

You shouldn't be worrying about this right now, but since you asked: 1. Either dip the coffee packet like snuff or throw back the grounds and chase it with water, drinking it it one shot. 2. Tie or bungee cord your knife around your chest - point up. When you drone, and your head falls, you will pok...

Hey, we had a few of those in 1/75 too! Once, we were all out on squad extavs, and for us, it was the night we had to do our road march. We were at the shoot house, so we were going to get hot chow before the road march. Guess what the spoons brought out to us. Goddamn liver. The only sombitch in th...

If I'm right. my bro's P90 with decocker is a single action weapon. BUT, if you engage the decocker, the first round is double action (i.e. longer pull), and the following rounds are single action. For my purposs, I prefer a single action because I don't want to have to pull my weapon to save my lif...

Leatherneck: I have the black frame, 5" tactical model, in a .40 cal. Yeah, you can't get one with a decocker, because it has a single action trigger. It actually has three safeties on it. The first is the grip safety. The slide will not operate unless the grip safety is depressed. The second is the...

Leatherneck: This may be a little off topic, but you may want to take a look at the Springfield XD series. I was recently trying to decide between HK and Sig myself. At the time I was shooting a 1911. Then, I started reading articles about this "new" weapon from Springfield Armory. Then I tested one...

My definition of a glory hound is a person who seeks admiration from others by associating witha certain group of people. Glory hounds want to be CALLED Rangers, or SEALs, etc. They want to have stories to tell so that everyone thinks they are a tough guy. The guys that are the real deal don't care ...

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner.

There's nothing like a book to let your personal biases run free. It is too tough for the other side the get their arguement heard.

rbarger, I understand your arguement, and even agree to a certain extent. There is a lot of difference between an operator and and cherry PFC. But in the book and the movie both, they illustrated that inherent difference between an operator and an E-6 Squad leader that just got promoted to chalk lea...

I will try to answer this without going over the line. Your gut reactions are pretty much right on. Look at it this way: if this particular unit does in fact exist, where do they get the soldiers that make up that unit? Off the street? Leg units? I don't think so. Something tells me that if I were l...
