It's quiet in here. . .too quiet. Here's some filler while people think of more important things to say. And no, I haven't forgotten about my response to my own question about women in combat - it's coming. I'm just stupidly busy here. I'll be glad when my Command and Staff course is done!


Marine Corps Rules:


1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.

3. Have a plan.

4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.

5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a '4'

7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)

9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.

10... Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

11... Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

12... In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

13... If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

Ya, it sure is slow. This month has been pretty abysmal for new posts and replies. It reminds me of years ago. SLOW!!



Thanks for the filler aka laughs! :armata_PDT_01:


Funny thing too, we've had a bunch of new people sign up and I'm still waiting for many to make their first post. They keep telling me they want to find more info, but unless they take an active role, there's not much I can do for them. Seems a pity...


Ya, I've been busy as usual with multiple projects, inside the house and out.


Here's to you finishing your class. :wave2:

Ya, sure has been slow here, everybody must be out mingling with the 3D people. :zzzz:

That was too funny...3D people! So what do they have that we don't?? Oh ya, another dimension!
