Rem 700

I recieved a 700 with a "Modified" trigger. Still wasn't happy. I pulled it and polished the sear and contact points with fine stones and J-B boreshine to smooth to a mirror finish, then set to a 3 1/2 pound break. No complaints or issues after that.

that this is a "tactical" training center made for sillyvilians who want to pay money to feel like a soldier for a couple days.

Go get 'em, guys. Capitalism at it's finest.

Yeah.....

It is most likely...

But why they would come here to ask for feed back on the 700 triggers is beyond me if it is the real deal....

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

True...

Would think they had enough shooters of their own, or worked with agencies that could provide the imput....

"It's been our experience that after pulling the trigger assembly and polishing the sear and contact points with fine stones and J-B boreshine to a mirror finish, then setting it to a 3 1/2 pound break, we had no complaints or issues. Good job, ronin. You have helped to create some expert firearms instructors. Expect your check to be arriving in the mail in, oh, NEVER!!!

When I reclassed to MP, I made a comment to one of the MP drill sergents that you can't spell "Wimp" without "MP", and he replied "Yeah, well you can't take a shit without a GRUNT". Pretty funny.

LOL

Yeah that is actually funny...

reminded me of Pauly Shore in "You in the Army Now"

Lady drill Sgt calls him Grunt and he leans in close and "grunts" at her like he is getting a nut.

LOL

You're an FO?

So you get to see the results of the cannon cockers' efforts, huh? I learned a lot about CAS and calling for fire from our FO when I was a younf infantry RTO. I don't know if ya'all still deal with CAS, but I assume so. I actually learned how to change the settings on my SINCGARS with it still on my back without looking from our FO. Good shit. I have to say, though, that when I called an Apache to kill some bad guys in Iraq, I didn't use any sort of format. Then again, Apache pilots have no idea what proper radio procedure is.

And they all sound the same on the radio. Weird.

LMFAO!!!

Don't they! That crazy...arrogent,cool,laid-back voice... Helo pilots are good to work with, be it little-birds or apaches. Fast movers can be sticklers for protocol... And they are actually increasing our training with the aviation. They sent me to Nellis AFB to learn from the airforce. GOOD TIMES!!!

Yeah, that's perfect

Cool, laid back. Perfect description. Shark 06, the guy who killed 4 or 5 hajis, finished up his engagement and said on the radio "Yeah, they're all fuckin' dead". Never changed the inflection in his voice. I was awfully happy to have big brother in the sky when I was EOD escort.

helo pilots

we get the SOAR guys in Chinooks out of Joint Base Mcchord Lewis flying through the valley I live in. My kids really like watching them so they will go out and wave up to the choppers.The pilots will stop and hover at eye level to our porch and wave back at the kids then take off. I figure if chopper pilots are cool enough to do that for some kids then they are probably pretty cool guys.

Greasy

In my experience, as a rule.... yes, they are. and the guys we had covering us in Iraq stayed till we needed them, none of this "we need our manditory rest" crap... They stayed till job was done, or until they were Bingo on gas.

You give a 3 x 5 card to the crew to confirm LZ location and PAX. We used to give them an extra card that said things like "Your momma sucks goat cock, make us puke." Man, talk about some wild fucking rides.

Going to college?

Congrats, man. Get some education so you can replace those wrench callouses with paper cuts and a bigger paycheck. Get some, brother.

We just asked if they had the balls fly Nap Of the Earth like last crew did, or were they just not that good.... They showed us some amazing flights, but almost had a mid-air collision with a cow once. LOL! Talk about low!

Fuckin' nice.

Nap of the earth in Panama was better than any fuckin' roller coaster ride on earth. One second, we see treeline, the next, we see sky and out guts are pushing on our assholes. I'd love to be a chopper pilot, but I'd be one of the few UH-60 pilots with an M4/M203 and 2X combat load with mags and HEDP, waiting to get shot down and having fun with the locals.

Went to the jungle survival school in panama while it was still going. Had the old Vietnam vets flying us in Hueys... I was sitting on the floor with my feet on the skids. Had freakin tree branches slapping my feet at times.

November '97, I think. We had a blast, with a battalion beach party where everyone except the chaplain and the CSM were shit-hammered drunk. Green Hell was the coolest fuckin' obstacle course ever invented.

Well shit, that sucks

All we had were monkeys. Mortar section sergeant got his PC knocked off his head by monkey shit because we pissed 'em off by shooting cleaning rods at them with blank rounds.

Time to go to sleep, all. Got arms to do at the gym tomorrow. Goddamn beer and vodka's gonna have me dehydrated as fuck. This is gonna suck. 'Night all.
