does anyone know where I can get one (besides recriut training).

I'd say find someone near PI or MCRD SD and ask for a hookup. I'll be back in Beaufort in a few months if you can wait for me to pick one up for you. I got mine for 50 cents.

I'm curious, then.. why is it called the "Mickey Mouse" towel?

I like that pic!!I have a buddy in Pendleton, I'll ask if he can swing by MCRD to pick one up. Thanks for the offer though!!! 1108 is that a MOS? I wanna say something in the combat engineer. Thanks again Marine!!

When I was at MCRD we called them "Sesame Street" towels. It is a cloth with all the AR 15 M16 parts on it so you lay the carrier in the carrier shape and so on.

I think its a way to try to dummy proof weapons maintenance for recruits. so they don't lose the parts. mickey mouse, sesame street, barney, whaterever.

Don't mention it. I used to have a few of them, but I gave the extra's away at the range to fellow AR owners that had never seen them and wanted one. 1108 is November 8, 2000 when I finished the Crucible and became a Marine. Good luck!

Be a cool item for the guest bathroom.

I still have one from the Army for the M60 (Uh Oh...is that showing my age?). We didn't get ones for the M16s?

I have seen these at a few gunshows too.

Good luck in your search.

i have a breand new one i bought before i left PI, i thought it would be cool framed up in my home office. i always thought it would be cool to have one printed up on a real terry cloth towel to use.

That's because they didn't need them when you were in....................... how many pieces did the Mk-I Stick break down into when properly field stripped?

Which was soon replace by the MK-I-PI (Product improved), SHAPRENED Stick.

I can't agree more. I need one of these for my bathroom.

I would love to see the looks on my friends faces when they finish washing their hands and reach for the 'towel'.
