Re: Will Gov Shutdown hold up Form 1 applications?

Howdy, Update on Form 1 times. I filed on 7-12-19 and kept wanting for the email with the fingerprints cover sheet. Finally on August 1st I called the atf and was told I would not be able to see the attachments on an iPhone or iPad. That’s what I use. So I had to use my work laptop to retrieve my em...

Re: How much does a sound suppressor really silence a rifle?

Howdy, The suppressor/silencer on a rifle changes the pitch of and reduces the muzzle blast but doesn’t effect the boom/pop/ whatever of the supersonic crack from the bullet. On the battlefield this makes it harder to locate the position of the sniper/shooter because the bullet will continue to have...

Re: If you want to be combat arms...just do it!

Howdy, B- Women have some crazy stories, too. I had a female friend who was an AF computer programmer during the '90-91 Gulf War. She was cross-trained as SF and later told me that her job was to kill all of us Intel guys if the Base was ever overrun! :shock: Her revelation didn't shock me a bit. If...

Re: If you want to be combat arms...just do it!

Howdy, I used to tell everyone that I was the rarest thing to come out of the Vietnam War. I was the only known support troop to serve in SEA. Every one else was a Seal, Green Beret, Recon, Tunnel Rat, Sniper etc. You don't know how tired I got supporting all those guys by myself. Seriously, I think...

Re: If you want to be combat arms...just do it!

Howdy, One of my former co-workers always talked about being with the 5th. Special Forces and I always assumed he was 18B because he looked liked a badass, kinda tall, muscular ( but not a meathead ), faster than a scared cat and extremely athletic. Turn out he was a humvee mechanic. Go figure. I wa...

Now that's funny!

All kidding aside, I work for the FAA as an Engineering Technician.

So, no spy satellites.

Re: Do you carry at work?

Howdy,

I work for the Federal Gov't so the answer is "No."

This really sucks because I travel all over the state of Arkansas by myself to remote Communication sites.

Yesterday I was in an area w/out cell phone service and could hear banjo music off in the distances.

He did have a pretty believable "story" and had done a lot of research about being a sniper. He got a lot of info from several of us from HS ...

Wow! You can own/build a select fire suppressed SBR but you cannot reload and ammo is hard to buy.

To make it to E-6 in the boatswain's rating in less than 9 years means he was a pretty good butt kisser. His ribbons come fr...

The .300Blk is a short range round and that extra 100fps makes the difference between a humane kill and a wounded deer that runs off and dies later. It also increases yo...
