  1. You and the rest of America who pays taxes are paying me $2,000 for me to sit around doing this all day. Know you know where all of your money is going. Any more questions? http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/862718

      2. @deadshot I don't care. The Marine Corps survives off of the Army's garbage. Basically since the Corps is a department of the Navy all of our funds are basically leftover funds from the actual Navy meaning we get significantly less funds than the other departments. So we use our funds to buy the Army's used gear (ex. Rifles, tanks, pistols, aircraft, machine guns). That means I don't care what the Army gets because the Marine Corps is still going to be stuck with Bretta M9's until the Army is done with their P320's and pass them to us.

          1. @deadshot I like them better anyways, yes. But I'm still waiting for the day Desert Eagles become standard issue. Or at least let me bring my own with me...

            1. @lcplazureblaze lol fair enough. I want to say the most common problems i have personally seen with the m9 (civillian 92fs) were worn out falling locking block (need to be replaced roughly every 6k rounds) and a worn out slide stop. both a pain but still relitivly easy to fix. no im not i gunsmith though i do tinker a bit

              1. @deadshot If you know how to load rounds into a mag the right way you're already better than 1/4 of us. I've seen officers load pistol mags backwards... It's embarrassing.

                1. @lcplazureblaze well how often do officers have to maintain a "combat rating" if there is such a thing in your branch?

                  1. @awl Everyone has to qualify on the rifle range once a year. Depending on your score you get one of three qualifications: Expert being the highest (me just to brag a bit), Sharpshooter, and Marksman which is the lowest. If you fail you are unqualified and have to try again. Same standards apply for pistol qual only certain Marines are required to qual with that. There are a number of different combat skill that need to be tested with varying intervals in which they need to be tested such as gas chamber and swimming which are every two years but we do them more often because we have nothing better to do. Most combat related skills are tested yearly.

                    1. @lcplazureblaze ah so you lot do that also. I don't remember if we had mandatory chemical training but marksmanship was the same, qualified yearly. As an officer you were more likely to be a field officer if you scored high enough. I think all the other field skills were yearly also but none of that stuff applied to me as we were in-field as is.

                      1. @awl NBC training goes once every two years but they normally send us out before that a lot just cuz we can. What branch were you?

                        1. @lcplazureblaze russian army. My battalion was mobilised for four out of five years I was in, so most of the qualifiers we'd have faced were foregone.

                          1. @awl I just want to go out of the way to say I absolutely love Russians. I'm trying to learn Russian myself. How was your time in the Army?

                            1. @lcplazureblaze really a mixed bag. Now with afterthought I don't like what we were doing but my time in the service is invaluable. I wouldn't trade it for anything even if I don't agree with the government then or now.

                              1. @awl Same here. It may suck now but I've done things nobody else could imagine doing... Made some really good friends and shared good times and bad times with them but we laugh at both of them either way.

                          2. @awl Also I'm trusting you to not use the information I share here to start a war with America pl0x. I'd get in so much trouble.

          2. @deadshot I have fired the M92FS on a couple of occasions. I found it to be a decent pistol, but truthfully speaking, I would much rather have a Glock 17 or a Sig Sauer P226/Mk.25 when it comes to a full-sized 9mm handgun.
