I noticed that you don't have rails on your M4s either.

 

Not everyone is lucky enough to get rails!

Could you please give them a light coat of break-free? fear.gif

 

In that environment, wouldn't giving the outside of them a coat of break-free that just make the sh1t stick to them more???

Thereby increasing the chance of a stoppage not decreasing it think.gif

hawkdriver - Nope, not any more. Back in the guard I was Med. Now I'm in a VIP/C2 company in a GSAB. I tried to get over to Charlie Med but to no avail.

 

Manchu Warrior - Yep. We have a CONEX that is right next to our CP with a doorway cut into it. The arms room is in the back part of the CONEX.

 

Varangia - Dang it,we don't have any WOJGs!!! Just W2's and above, our least ranking W2's are up in Mosul too boot.

 

Mr-X - We have some folks who do carry an M16 still. Everyone jokingly referes to the M16 as "the muzzle loader" or "the musket" because its so darned long compared to the M4.

 

 

Just a general note. Our M4's go from hanging on the arms room wall to sitting in the back of a helicopter. Aside from the range way back in Kuwait of last year I don't think a round has been put through them. They may appear dirty on the outside but I'm pretty sure they're dirty on the inside as well. hehehe At least once a month the armorer will sit down and have a cleaning party for the M4's. Whoever is in the CP at the time gets to join the party.

The 240's on the other hand get test fired at least every other day and they are kept clean by the crew chiefs. Since they are the main aerial defense weapon for us they are kept in tip top firing condition. When it comes to the 240's, dont' let the outside appearances fool ya.

You are aware that taking pictures of a unit's arms room is a bit...against regs. If you look at the sign on the front it says something specifically about not taking photos.

 

 

My 2 cents

You'd be surprised at the amount of rules and regulations that fall by the way side in a combat theater.

If you follow that rule, then you can't take any picures just about anywhere in Iraq! You can't take pictures on any COB, FOB, or LSA, but show me a single GI that follows that rule. Just go on You Tube, Iraq is probably the most photographed country on earth.

 

Swag, take care and keep the place clean, I don't want a Sh%^hole when I come back for my vacation!

Oh, but this is the new Army math, with FSXXI and unlimited setbacks: W2+PI=WOJG.

Hey hawkdriver, I've found that CPT's really don't like being called 'First Lieutenant Second Award.'

I forgot how many soldiers these days don't care to follow the "rules". It's too bad things are going so down hill. It's amazing the sad change in the 13 years I have been in.

do you guys keep 30 round magazines loaded? do you down load with less than 30 rds to keep the springs more reliable?

 

how long do magazines stay loaded if they are not used? do you rotate them or keep records how long they have been loaded?
