Ok, so first off, in the Marine Corps you have to qualify on the rifle range every year.

I have not in 2 because I was busy, and also, a bunch of other people I am currently with have not because they just got back from Iraq.

So, were non infatry troops right, and our unit decides because its convenient to send us to qualify at this huge comptetition, which is legal and all, but its like........wtf.

The targets are smaller, some of the positions are changed for certain amounts of rounds.....

We have to pistol shoot with one hand like a cowboy.

Another unit was over heard talking about how they fire thousands of rounds a day and got a week of just pistol training while we had barely a morning.

A fucking military exchange program flew in the Royal Marine shooting team....lol....

All of these guys are so about this competition and we were like, were just here for our yearly shooting.

We're fucked, heh. So, anyone just have random experiences like that?

I've never heard of the Army Infantry doing any shooting competitions, but I wouldn't be surprised. I never did. However, I did shoot thousands and thousands of rounds, do months at a time training rotations in stock houses and field problems, and I've done out of state, on site training missions. I still wake up some times and swear I smell gunsmoke.

Why? Guns are beautiful. I mean, they're nowhere near as fun as blades, but, they're still fun.

Yeah they have inter branch competitions and the army has their own comp. Some retired marine master sgt is some teacher for some part of the army. Teams maybe I forgot.

The British army loooooves pistols. When Germans ask the Royal Marines to surrender, they don't shout fuckin' "nuts" they throw boomerang pistols. That's what you're up against.

Nuts was the best line of the war.

"Nuts" became a cybernations meme, sort of ruined it for me.

A few of them are not too hot but a few are also really good so far. Their bad shooters though are better than our bad shooters.

We have our Presidents 100, though I never met anyone of them.
