Hello to all of y'all! This week has been a bit nerve wracking - lots of IDF and lots of strangeness out in the red - (Missed me again Mookie!) -
It looks like the Cav boys with the ....errrmmmm....help....of the IA and IP (collectively known as the ISF) are slowly stomping Mookie's ass for him - 1 block at a time -
(more below the fold)
My boys caught some SA this week - no PID - so no returned fire - - but I would like to say that the vast majority of the boys are Frosty like the snow man out there - there are only a couple that I have my worries about, but the vast right wing conspir...I mean majority - are turning into right operators - I am proud of them.
Our buddy Robear is *NOT* pleased with his duty assignment and regularly takes it out on me PSO work sucks when the principle won't leave the wire
I gave in and mounted a ACOG (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight) on my rifle instead of the Leopould CQ/T -
It took some convincing as the aforementioned ACOG - *I* thought was *not* a zero paralax system for close in use - mainly because of all the crazy add on red dots and iron sights that you see bolted to ACOGs- these things are so popular that even Trijicon (the makers of the ACOG) is selling the things with a mini red dot pre-mounted -
HOWEVER - this is really unnecessary as the ACOG can be used (and actually is *intended* to be used during CQB work as a "red dot" - not to mention the reticle is set up to shoot both eyes open out to 200m. The "issue" ACOG has a range finding reticle that is VERY quick to aquire and seems to *always* have just the right amount of intensity - regardless of the conditions - this is thanks to the dual illumination system - Tritium and fiber optics light it up at night and daylight (respectively)
Anyway - the point is - we went out to the range the other day and I zeroed the thing - and OK - so I like it - I like it enuff to leave it on - in place of my CQ/T for a bit - hmm....we'll see - the only problem I had in zeroing is I was a bit rushed becuase of the circumstances - so it is battle zeroed - but not pinpoint zeroed like my CQ/T - I know with my CQ/T headshots out to 300m were easy peasy - with this ACOG...well, suffice it to say that I will want to go back and confirm zero with a proper target and take my time - BUT for now I am confident of a "center mass" hit out to 300m easy - 500m if I take my time
