    I just purchased a Glock 23 and cant wait to try it out. I liked the Glock 19 that I carried as a service weapon.

    even if you're not fit enough for them the least you could be given is a job ya could do somewhere here or at an embassy or something like that.

    I think what I'm going to do is go back to school and let them pay for it. The VA has a pretty good program called Vocational Rehab.

    I think I'll do that and open up my own business or something.

    Thanks for your sacrifice prplehrtvet. I got one of those medals too, but fortunately I am still good to go. Just some little pieces of medal in unimporant places.

    6 years paratrooper 11B

    Spent most of my time on the M4, and M249 (piece of crap)

    Carried all the other small arms systems and spent some time on a scout sniper team with M24s and Barretts.

    Loved the M24, M4, Mossberg, and 240B.

    Hated the M249, and Berretta.

    As a squad leader I would have rather had an extra 2 M203 systems then the overweight and poorly made M249s.

    This thread has been quiet for far too long! I would really appreciate hearing from our people in uniform. Tell us where you're at, what you're carrying and what you think. Please know that we have the utmost of respect for you and are proud of your accomplishments and service to the greatest country on the planet, the USA!! People that are on the other side of the big pond need to know what's going on. We don't get the straight scoop from this biased liberal media. You deserve a place to make your feelings known and I hope you feel free to share your thoughts here, on your forum. Without your service, our freedom of speech wouldn't exist.

    You guys and gals ROCK!!! I hope to hear from you when you get a chance to share your thoughts. God Bless you all and stay safe...

    Thanks, Tig

    Just found this site while tracking down the location of the Washoe County Range. It seems to be a great site.

    I'm ex Air Force, 16 years (53 thru 68), Security Police Instructor and Special Operations. I originally trained on the 1911A1 and M1 rifle, but eventually qualified to teach the Thompson SMG, M3 Grease Gun, M1 & M2 Carbine,M14, M16, AK47, and the Makarov.

    I've given my long guns to my kids but still have a Bernetta 92, S&W M&P, and Bersa UC 45.
