    These days the army has automated pits. Marines still use pull targets. So that's half the range shooters pulling pits all day. It sucks

    You know the start of the thread was also the end of the thread right?

    Everything else in between is just filler; Marine Corps > All.

    For us, it depends on the range. Some places have the pop-up targets and some have the paper targets with different size targets to simulate different distances. The pop-up ones are a lot more realistic.

    Cleaning a weapon? HA! A folded up $20 in the ejection port meant my rifle was clean and I wasn't doing it :rofl:

    It would take you guys 3 days to properly clean firearm where it would take me one hour . Aircraft cleaning solvent was the best cleaner ever

    Wow that looks pretty bad for a barracks room here in the states. The Army was usually better than that, if not by much.

    The best part is, a PFC was forced to live in that for 1 1/2 weeks. He had to bleach bomb his shit every day, then when he started coughing up blood from a bronchial infection, they moved him out.

    Funny thing is, after all that, a few weeks ago the dude re-enlisted lol

    Yeah, our deployments are rough. I had to order a long sleeve PT sweatshirt during my last one, the Alaskan tent was way to cold (this was before we could wear civvies off duty). The dudes in the RLBs had it pretty rough too, they had to share their 10x10 living space with another dude, completely unacceptable o_O One time I even had to work an hour past my 12 hour mark since my replacement was late from steak and lobster night! Damn Marines and Army were hogging the line and kept going back for 2nds/3rds :mad:

    :D
