Nah, everyone who graduates AF basic gets at least a day of arms training with the M-16 (probably M-4 now) and the M-9. I was also a courier, so I spent the day shooting officially every 6 months or so.NExd said:
BASH BASH BASH :lol:HardRockXD said:well being in the air force i dont think its fair for everyone to bash on us. i build bombs and missiles all day every day. I just got back from pakistan and I carried an m-4 everyday. had to charge it a few times but never had to fire. just because we arent the army or marines doesnt mean we dont go through tough training or get in the ****. wish i couldve taken my XD with me though.
Don't get mad, 'Toine. I was just breaking your balls.Man_In_Camo said:We don't all sit at desks, and for every USAF guy at a desk, I'm pretty damn sure there's an Army guy at a similar desk doing similar work.
Our combat arm is dropping bombs, not ground pounding. We soften up the target before you go in.
You want to make fun of the AF b/c a larger % of us use our brains? Go ahead. I'll go back to my AC room w/cable. You enjoy your tent. :roll:

Good for you, and the better for all of us. Good air support = happy soldiers. Aim high! (You're still using that one these days, right? :wink: )Man_In_Camo said:I actually respect all branches equally.NiK said:Don't get mad, 'Toine. I was just breaking your balls.
Most of my post was busting balls, but standing up for my service branch as well, thats why I signed it the way I did. Much of my family is prior service, Uncle served 3 tours in Vietname in the late 60's, USMC, My grandfather spent 20 odd years in the Army, including WW2, Korean War, and my father put in 26 years in the USAF
I have friends in every branch, and in jobs such as infantry grunt, infantry commander (2dLt, USMC) to N.B.C. specialst (2dLt, Army) and pilot(USAF) and then I have a buddy enlisted in the Navy, but I don't know what he does. I also have a buddy who graduated from the US Merchant Marine Academy also - but I don't know what he really does
Yeah, I did that in AF boot camp, '78. My "M-16" was a .22LR conversion. The stock was stamped "Mattel". No Kidding! Everybody shot 100 rounds at a silouhette target. If you had a crappy shooter next to you, your target got over 100 shots through it and you could get a marksmanship ribbon.Infidel#1 said:
