    I'm sorry, but I don't see any guns in that pic. As far as I know your fly is still buttoned (thank god!).







    What's with the hippies holding rifles though? :tongue1:

    This is my rifle..there are many like it but this one is MINE!!!!

    Being in the Air Force and getting guns is pointless considering most people dont shoot one but every 30 months LOL.

    I own 4 guns back at home and shoot regularly. I am a Marksman shooter in the Air Force. But ya your'e right, half the people here don't know WTF to do with these weapons. Hopefully the Italians can keep them off the base:D

    If it came down to it and the AF went into a fighting war, I'd end up shootin the people I work with and take there ammo, because they'll just be wastin it.

    Yea, when I was in TAC and MAC they gave us a M-16 once every couple of years, let us shoot 100 rounds and then took it back and locked 'em back up. Wow, musta been afraid we might hurt ourself's.

    Where I went to basic if you called your rifle a "gun" you got to know your "weapon/rifle" very well while doing Rifle PT!

    Maybe in most situations. I had two uncles in Nam. One in the navy and one in the airforce. My uncle who was in the airforce at one point was defending a hanger/runway with his auto .45 handgun from a foxhole. So you never know when you may need the gun they give you ;)

    Now this is one thing I have never really understood. Going to a desert environment, you know with sand and all. Theyissue you desert Cammies and all your accessories green. Yeah they make covers for them but its rare you see them. Your Goretex is green as well as your pack and all Duece gear are green. OHH BTW nice reflective belt.........

    True. You do never know, but, like I said, mos tpeople in the AF dont shoot but one every 30 months..now how you gonna remember a damn thing every 30 months. Was talking with one of the combat arms trainers and he said most people average under a score of 22 outta 40 possible shots. I dont think the AF needs to shoot as often as other branches for obvious reasons but to stay smart and know what yer doin, 30 months just aint cutin it.

    It depends, There are 3 different "groups", what you do depends on which one you fall into. It follows at 30months, 25, 15. Cops shoot like eveyr 15, people who have more of a chance deploying and seein sand go like every 25 and "every other" shoots every 30. As far as scores I cant remember but that too depends on the class. I think 20 outta 40 is the very minimum and thats for the "C" group"(every 30 mo) "B" group I wanna say 25/40, and "A" is like 30/40.

    That all sounds right but I am not 100%, but I will find out tomorrow and make any corrections.

    wow! I didn't know there were different groups. I wish I could read your info tomorrow. :haha: I'll be away for a while though so I will miss that. In the army as a truck driver (thinking the army is all the same standard but not sure) I had to qualify with a min of 23. I like the m-4/m-16 better than the m249 (SAW )that's for sure. Probably due to back issues. I cannot qualify with a SAW to save my life. Funny thing is what'd I carry in Iraq? Yeah you guessed it a SAW! :yikes: Good thing they have a lot of rounds I guess. On average with the m-4 I shot right around 30 out of 40. But the army is imho more retarded than the af (shoulda joined af like i really wanted to in the beginning :doah:)
