Stainless, I was thinking more along the lines of AR15.com members posting pics of themselves in action. Lumpys threads are mostly news photos from overseas. Unless there is a thread like im talking about, Post 'em!!!

I've seen a number of pictures of practice at sea like the ones you posted, but I've never seen the "receiving" end pictured. What do you shoot at during those drills? Do you just pick a wave and practice weapon handling, or do they actually float some sort of target?
