Finally got some digital pics to pass.
Here's me firing this morning on the range reconfirming the EOTech.


Last week preparing for convoy duty. I was a .50 cal gunner with my M4 on right side of turrent as backup. Left turrent side held my M79.


My other rifle...

Why the ACOG behind the Eotech?

Maybe I'm missing somethng but I don't see an ACOG behind his EOTech... However, I do see an ACOG on the shooting bench.

Combat_Diver,

Thanks for your service. Stay safe and watch your six!

I really like the "old school" picture with the M14 and the 1911 45ACP the best, Rock On.

First rotation I had both a M9 and a M1911. This time only have a M9. Thats a M9 under the armor.

As far as the ACOG behind the EOTech in the second picture what I had in mind a precision shot if needed and not with a .50 cal. The EOTech was turned off and I could see straight through it with the ACOG. There's a slight blur from the EOTechs housing (like the front sight post of the M4 through the ACOG). Just ignore it and focus on the target. Don't have to keep trading optics and rezeroing. ACOG was a bit off when I put it back on this morning. Ran through a course of fire with the BUIS, EOTech and ACOG to check POI.

So, gunshields are coming back in style for the ring/pintle .50? Dusted off from storage or local fabrication?

re the M79: what's the reasoning on bringing them back out of storage? Seen a few in news pix from Iraq.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 6:55:49 AM EST
Either out of storage or new manufactured on the gun shields. On the M79, well I'm in HHC and all our TOE M203 are down with the war fighters. So we got M79 to make up shortages.

Can you pick me up some of those French guns, never been fired and only dropped once?
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 7:09:21 AM EST
Hell 4th POG (Only Active Duty Psyop Group) didnt turn in their M79s till like 97-98 Time frame.

Great Pics CD, Stay safe in HHC, them PAC Clerks can be dangerous

Thanks for the pics and be safe!!

Just curious how are the M4's holding up over there. Reliability wise, and how often do you clean them.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 7:58:14 AM EST
I guess I shoot the most here and its holding up fine (I'm our unit range meister and get on the range every thrid day or so). I wipe mine down every few days and we have weekly weapons cleaning.

Look again at the picture of the rifle hanging next to him behind the .50 cal. The ACOG that was sitting on the bench in an above picture is now mounted behind his Eotech.

I kind of suspected as much. .....Does the Eotech not rezero as well as the ACOG? Is that why you take it off instead of the Eotech?

Thanks, watch your six. Take care.

Great pics. I've seen quite a few M-4s over here, the Air Force SF airman that I asked yesterday said that they zero at 300 yards. I'm not familiar enough with the optics to know what he had on the rifle. Are they issuing a light for you guys?

So far, I've seen in the DFAC (Modern Army for Dining Facility, or Chow Hall to you and me):
M-16A2
M-4
M-249
AK-47 underfolder
M-14 (complete with Special Ops Army patch on the shoulder)
Steyr-AUG
Beretta M-9
Sig (Unsure of the model)

They don't even let most of us Air Force types carry around an M-9. Kind of funny, guess I'll stick to 20mm.

Nice pics. Stay safe.

Nice setup CD...but hey, we wanna hear about the mini guns some of SOF trucks have installed.
And just for a moment there in the 1st pic I thought you had a 10.5 barrel w/suppresor...then realized it was your torch....

Keep your head down and your powder dry CD.

Good to see that you have some Gypsy Rags turret armor...btw, if you can send me an offline or IM, have a team here that needs 2 for their trucks...have a 18B that is feeling a tad naked w/o a turret.
Thanks
