: I'm good with a pistol out to 50m, and with a rifle out to 200m. After that, the parallaz is too great for my fucked up eyes and I can't see.
: :( Hence Intel and not Infantry.

: You guys in the mil? What branch?

Arkansas National Guard. He shot competition 9 mils. They've changed the military format for competition since he retired. Now it's more like a real battle, whereas he shot from competition line to targets that rotated so that you had like 10 sec to fire your clip.

I made my first college A in Markmanship. I had my dad's talent I guess, cause I didn't know I needed glasses then, and I'm near sighted. I enjoyed shooting guns growing up, but I'm really glad my dad taught us what a weapon could do. We were never allowed to "play" with guns and were taught there's no such thing as a loaded weapon. I'm always amazed and appalled by the people who are for gun control, but have never taken the time to even load, shoot a gun, or underdstand gun etiquette.
