This is what happens when the Army lowers their standards even more (which I didn't think was possible)

No doubt, they manage to slip thru the cracks everywhere. But the crack is much bigger in the Army

Probably right ,But I'm guessing the Army has a lot more people on the payroll than the AF.

so, if you tied a small hammer handle to this and gave it to home intruders would it make a good home defense weapon

I am actually in the RTC west right now and the pin is actually not hard to put in and pull out. I saw this in the one of the slide in the class of M2. I shot it. Did you? We shot M249, MK19, and M240B. It was fun. I'm glad I'm in the Army and I don't see any substandard in the Army. This event is just plain individual and do not generalize it. I saw worse during my deployment in Afghanistan and they weren't in the Army. Did I say any branch? We work as a team. No reason to do this.

You people watch you are saying.

I've trained and deployed with the Army, so I got to shoot a bunch of stuff (although not the M2). Regardless, branch rivalry is nothing new, and this is CLSB. Figured in the 4 years you've been on this board you'd be somewhat desensitized
