    Great articals. Survival tips, food, and how to shoot and so on. I prefer to choose the red laser sight with gun mount and telescope. LOL.

    Thank you for your kind words.. and BTW...

    X5L (Gen 2) Veridan Green is the way to go if you like lasers... not only does it strobe it's a twofer... also comes with a 154 lumen tachlight.... that also strobes... with that irregular pulse that the dazzlers uses... as for scopes my fave is my Zeiss 4.5-14x50... that puppy rocks... still with all the bells and whistles... with a standard M16 and Iron sites... I put every round in the black on the 500 meter targets...

    and just how big is that "black", and from what firing position? How long did this string of fire take, and how many shots were needed to get on target? :-) Were there witnesses, wind flags? Was there any heat mirage, or up and down hill problems?

    Back when I joined the Marine Corps... 1977 every recruit was issued an M16 A1... back then part of your qualification with said weapon was the 500 meter long range fire... a man sized silhouette... I still have my old shooting book somewhere...

    this is training every Marine goes through.... just ask any vet... he'll tell ya...
    the old A1's were zeroed at 150 meters... the rear site could flip up and that site was set to 500 meters... Nowadays the flip on rear sight on an A2 is to comp for gas mask or night fire....The M4 is only good out to 300 meters so no long range for that gun....we fired kneeling and prone... as for witnesses yes lots of them... my entire company, but it was no big deal as we were all shooting...for score... that was recorded and went into our offical SRB... as for up and down hill...
    we all know point of aim changes with grade... meaning you your bullet will always hit high of point of aim.... but I never really understood why that is?

    Keep in mind that the Marines are well known for training the best marksmen in the world... just look at two of our most infamous members... Charles Whitman.. a former Marine who killed 16 people and wounded 32 others during a shooting rampage... not to bad for a Remington 700 6mm bolt-action hunting rifle with a 4x Leupold Scope

    Lets not forget yet another well known former Marine... Lee Harvey Oswald... in 8 seconds with a crappy bolt action rifle he managed to get off three shots two of them killed JFK also wounding Governor John Connolly and a bystander...

    Might not be the best example but it does go to show you what a motivated well trained Marine can do with a rifle...

    The Army was a lot more realistic, a bit of practice at 500 yds but no shots for qualifications were beyond 300 m, and if you hit every torso at 150 yds and less, you qualified, HUGE torso and head targets, too. No, you can't add 350 yds of range just by flipping up the other wing of the rear sight. It adds at most 100 yds of zero-range.

    Yeah, you were in the Army like you are an IPSC competitive shooter.

    Google for IPSC and The Columbia Conference. Look on the IPSC charter for my name, dip. I volunteered for Nam in the fall of 1971. got an Article 15 for having a 1911 and Colt .22 unit with me during MP training at fort garbage, GA. they didn't find my Llama 380, tho. :-) Actually, they didn't find the Colt .45 either, but they WOULD have found the 380 the next morning, with police call around the barracks, and I figured that the match 1911 would go over better with the CO than the pocket auto would, so I surrendered the 1911 and then recovered the Llama later.

    Felons are not allowed to possess or own firearms. Lies, one and all. Scurry off, little cockroach.
