Great as always Lumpy.

Okay, I'm really going to embarass myself. I try to stay on top of things, especially 101st related since I was in the 187th. When the hell was the 506th re-activated? Am I just oblivious to things? How did I miss this?!?!?!?! Granted, I am in Texas now and have been for some time.

God strike me down now before the wrath of Arfcom cometh...

No, but I have shouldered my rifle while wearing my helmet. Unless you mount the optic WAY up there or use some kind of funky stock like the B&T gas mask stock for HKs, you are gonna have trouble getting a sight picture.

MG3 is mo' better-all the MG42 goodness, but made with higher quality materials and evil, evil 7.62 bullets that tend to break at the cannelure on impact.
