    • Getting ready to embrace the suck...

      Been retarded busy, trying to get school stuff taken care of before fall break and then during fall break I was occupied with a bachelor party for one of my brother's friends that I'm good with- Went to Athens and for the first time since my 21st did the whole go "downtown" to the bars thing (since bars in Columbus are only blah compared to Athens, apparently). Got to see UGA crush Tennessee. Then the rest of the weekend was full of excellent SEC games. Also ran into a buddy that whose band was performing at a Frat House, and a buddy who was on a weekend off from IOBC that graduated from school last year.
      Sunday we woke up hungover as hell after walking back to the hotel at 3am and went to some seedy joint in Atlanta known as the Pink Pony- and then me and my brother headed on to Birmingham to see Daniel Tosh perform-
      Made it home a little after 1am and found my concealed carry permit in the mail box-


      Only thing that could have made this weekend better would have been my drink buying to success with the ladies ratio being better-

      Tomorrow should be my last day with internet comms til Sunday, Thursday afternoon starts our Ranger Challenge competition- there has been a real black out on information from cadre and the people that are running it- other than knowing that supposedly the shooting competition is gonna be more useful (instead of being static shooting prone/kneeling) we know that is to be a stress shoot at Krilling Range- which I know has lots of steel targets and is normally used by the Army Marksmanship Unit for pistol stuff. We also know through our connections (having our cadet BC being an old RI) that Ranger Training Battalion is providing Zodiac rafts that weekend...
      We also know that instead of during downtime that we won't be sleeping at one of the basic training companies on Sand Hill in an off cycle and that supposedly it is to be 31 hours of competition culminating in a reverse order PT test. (run 2 miles at a 6~ min pace then while winded do situps and pushups)

      Going to mellow mushrom @ 2100 for my brothers 26th, then meeting my buddy for a 21+1 mile birthday run @ 0200, then grading a PT test @ 0700, then immediately going to the Mogadishu Mile 5K sponsored by the Ranger Assistance foundation/3rd Ranger Battalion @ 0900

      I think this qualifies as sadistic behavior-

      Quick update since I have 2 things due in 4 hours-

      Woke up Tuesday with pain in my stomach went to PT anyways, went into retard strength mode and made it passed the kettle bells in our circuit training before I started vomiting uncontrollably (and continued to do so until until our LTC who was with our PT group said that I had to go to the hospital-) I was in so much pain from the constant stomach spasms they thought it could be appendix issues- Turned out it was just Salmonella. Made it to school for one day of classes this week because of that, so I'm waaay behind, spending more hours in a hospital than a school in a single week tends to do that.

      Friday decided that I was feeling normal enough to get back to PT so afternoon included running through Malvesti (twice) and once we getting soaked and getting sand in my pants doing ruck run down to Yankee Land Nav.
      Saturday had us doing a Leaders Reaction Course. The obstacles wouldn't be difficult if you had a squad of people that could support their own body weight, or weren't afraid of being more than 8 feet off the ground (I kid you not), or were to question the knot tying ability an Eagle Scout and graduate of the Basic Mountaineering Course (Of course your 200+ pound ass can pull an inch or two of slack out of my knot).
      Failure to follow instructions carried the day and while I was the squad leader and was leading from the top of an obstacle after safely lowering 6 people down the opposite side of an obstacle some asshat ignored the commands and decided to go down before I and the other guy were ready and my hand wasn't in place and because of that a nail head hung up on my second knuckle of my middle finger and ripped it open-

      Sooo, I got my second visit to the emergency room in 4 days... after numerous tests of bending my finger, irrigating the wound, bending it some more (ow) to ensure there wasn't tendon or nerve damage since it was so deep and at a knuckle. Ruined my current high speed boots (the ones I wore through Alaska and Air Assault) with blood along with one of my nicer uniforms that I accidentally grabbed out of my for garrison use only pile... super.

      Without bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all-

      Edit:
      Really nintendo? You think your bitch-made attempt at a live action commercial for some lame Metroid game is gonna cash in on the success of the Halo (ODST and Reach) live action viral marketing success- shits bush league (at best)-

      Well today I finally signed my contract. So I can safely say I now have a 10 year plan (2 more in school, at least 8 in the Army), a classic Dilbert comic comes to mind...
      2871_1067320239353_1116450107_30163720_6
      Should get sworn in on Monday at PT. All of this in the midst of me wading through the gaggle fuck of being the cadet CO and having to make a roster, as people quit the course, add the course, the cadet Battalion XO and SGM okay it, BC changes his mind I make changes XO okays it, assistant S3 adds more crap for me to change, I make changes, S3 says those changes were wrong my assistant is an assclown it was this different thing, the cadet BC changes his mind and I have to make more changes. I'm now on my 7th revision and we've gotten rid of a platoon and now have overstaffed platoons of people with people in leadership positions that are still not registered in the course or the correct course. Awesome. I also got another task added to my list of stuff to do, to be the captain of the ROTC intramural league ultimate frisbee team. Potentially the best voluntold scenario for me ever.

      Its gonna be a long year

      About to order my holster. For the gun I haven't bought yet. Which I'll carry with the GFL that I haven't applied for yet. But the holster should be the one that takes the longest to get. Why can't it be my birthday yet.

      Home from Alaska and the Northern Warfare Training Center and school is starting to whip up now. It was weird so many of the cadre I had were former 82nd and 101st guys but were just like meh in regards to the skill sets that those units stressed. It was crazy to see how dead serious they were about military mountaineering and the fact we've fighting in mountains in for nearly a decade now without a emphasis on preparing soldiers with skills to operate more effectively in a mountain environment. I've been climbing and rappelling since I was about 12 through the boy scouts, but there were still a ton of things in regards to anchors/retrievable rappels not even to touch on the stuff in regards to military operations around the terrain-

      We head 3 or 4 of the 12 cadets in the course carry a camera, I have 2 cameras worth of pictures on my photobucket, I believe the album is set to public for access- the pictures are in reverse order so go to page 9 for the beginning and halfway through it will reset and it will be a different cameras pictures-
      The guy in the orange jacket is the head safety guy, that I heard rumors is a retired Sergeant Major with time at one of the Ranger Battalions along with 24 years of climbing experience, all the guys in acu pants and normal jackets and hoodies are from some company that sent people up from Digital Outpost on behalf of the Army to document our training and make a like 5 minute video about what cadets do there for recruiting or some such- I'm with holding judgment until I see what they come up with. Speaking of videos here is one from one of the rope teams. I was in the cluster of people on the rocks eating during this, but captured my sentiments for the glacier fairly well. It was rainy, then it was snowing, then it rained again, then it started sleeting on the way down back to base camp. It was absolutely miserable- before I had equipment failures (broken weld on right crampon, and two snapped rivets on the left that ended up being held together with 550 cord for 4 miles).

      This semester should prove to be interesting with the course load I'm taking,but my schedule is perfect I finish before noon 3 days out of the week and have the rest of the day for doing stuff. The way I see it I have to wake up for PT every morning so I might as well finish the day as soon as possible. As a side note it seems like every year the freshman get cuter.

      Lol, it happens. For an air box it is rather puny, it looks to be about the same size as the airbox on my motorcycle (with exactly... no really, EXACTLY half the engine). The tank surrounds the airbox, so it really looks like motorcycles should hold more gas than they really do.

      That's actually the exact ammo I bought. I paid $52.xx after tax at the gun show, so it seems I got a decent deal. Thanks for the link. Moreover, thanks for telling me I unwittingly made a smart purchase! smiley8.gif

      Nearest Sonic is like an easy hour drive. Maybe more, I am not for sure.

      Yes, I lost about 10 pounds when i got my wisdom teeth out. It was HORRID. But, its better than having them come out sideways, or grow back into your jaw (like 2 of mine were).

    • Havoc1

      11 years ago

      At this point, I recommend any ammo you can afford. Bringing up the Russian stuff is like arguing religion in a bar. Some guys will swear they wouldn't shoot the stuff if you paid them because steel casings are bad for the rifle. Others will tell you they've fired thousands upon thousands of rounds of it without a problem. Personally, I've fired about 1500 rounds of Russian Brown Bear because it was cheap. No complaints, but I don't shoot for accuracy. Most of what I do is stress-fire and CQM. I've only had one bad round so far. The biggest complaint is the stuff stinks--it doesn't have that same familiar cordite smell you're used to. Oh, and the red lacquer used to seal the primers makes cleaning a slightly bigger pain in the ass. But, for the money, it's worth it.

      Edit: Shit, it's out of stock in the first 3 places I looked. The lack of 5.56 is reaching crisis levels! smiley2.gif

      awesome, someone reads those. i was beginning to wonder.

      anyway, peachtree city is a fairly new city, roughly about 40 or 50 years old. it started growing quite rapidly in the late 80s and throughout the 90s, and since it wasnt that big before that they had a chance to implement some new wave transportation managemant. they built golfcart paths all over the city either next to the roads or through the woods connecting neighborhoods and businesses while they built the city up, so now there are golfcart paths everywhere (im not sure but im fairly certain we're nearing 1000 miles of path) and everyone can drive their golfcarts around without wasting gas, unless they have a gas golfcart, in which case they dont have to wast MUCH gas. that and its fairly fun too. there are no speed limits that i know of, either that or golfcarts in general are just not fast enough for anyone to care (yet. muahahahahaha! i have plans) and you get to fly through the trees and through tunnels and stuff. its like a little race track sometimes, though im sure the police would love to hear me say that. i dunno, its fun, cheap, we installed a 4 speaker stereo system on my golfcart so i got my tunes. its nice. i really cant explain why but its nice

      and have fun reading all that.

      It turns out on our local radar stations, the highest level of reflectivity is Black, right after a very dark purple.

      It goes: dark green, light green, yellow-green, yellow, bright yellow, yelow-orange, orange, bright red, dark red, darker red, lightish purple, hot pink, purple, darker purple, darkest purple, black.

      Sometimes, the Black is replaced with White, and sometimes light blue and dark blue are added underneath the greens, as with NOAA.

      Seeing big areas of Black on the radar with tornado indicators al over the place is fucking scary.

      I go through State Farm for the insurance, and my bike (650cc), with my horrible record, runs me about $900 per year. Now, I have to pay that $900 up front, but i cancel the plan after 7-8 months, which makes it quite reasonable per year. On a 250 cc motorcycle, with a reasonable driving record, I would bet you would be paying half what I do.

      State Farm can be good, and can be bad. My family gets a family discount because we have about 10 vehicles insured with them, along with the house and property, a few life policies, basically everything thats insured is insured through S.F.

      If you go with a new bike, I would have full coverage plus comprehensive on it. Comprehensive is going to cover anything like if it falls over, you drop it and ding the tank or break the fairing, whatever, so I would have a low deductible on that part. You will drop it (slow speed maneuvering is a bitch), trust me.

      Geico is a rip off. Progressive will probably rip you off since you are young. they tend to like older people. So, I recommend S.F.

    • burgundy

      11 years ago

      Yeah, I have been thinking about building an AR. But it seems that my dad is going to confiscate mine and rebuild it. Fine by me, but that means I won't be able to buy it from him like he had promised me when he bought it from my brother. the agreement was I would buy it from him for $200 when I had the money, and i just keep putting it off.

      I have also been thinking i would like a range gun... super accurate, single shot, bolt action whatever caliber I feel like getting.

      As for motorcycles, I still recommend the Kawasaki Ninja 250. $3500 new... can't really beat that. ESPECIALLY for a commuter bike with its 85-ish mpg.

      Yeah, It's a bit more up my alley, most of the people that go in there are going to be complete noobs and need help, or already know what they're doing. Just going in there a couple of time the staff seems really relaxed and cool, the sell all kinds of gear, kayaking, canoing, snow skiing, and backpacking of course. I think I would actually enjoy it.

      Employee discount would be sweet, I would load up on so much gear. Probably wouldn't need it, but I would tongue.png

      11 years ago

      Yeah, I want the most accurate round I can get. The next gun I want I want to pound itself at 200+ yds (though I would rarely take it beyond 200 yds). I knew the .308 has been used in sniper rifles, but I know I want something heavier than a .223 so the wind doesn't blow it around as much. A 30-06 might do the job, but I haven't done any research as of yet.

    • burgundy

      11 years ago

      Actually, in Illinois, I can't hunt deer with a rifle. Period. Its shotguns with slugs, or huge pistols, therefore I don't bother hunting.

      As for the ammo, I know its going to be a PITA to get started, but it isn't something I will be doing weekly, I bet at the maximum I will get out to the range an average of every other week when its nice out, for probably an average of 2 hours. And in that 2 hours I will want to shoot my AR and my pistol along with whatever else I get. My dad gives me the AR-15 loads (for some reason), so I really won't be too hard off on ammo. I don't expect to go through much other than the .223 for the AR.
