    Yeah, it's been a while, had to check. The gun itself is only 72 pounds, but the containers are the big mofo, 64lbs each. I think I was thinking of the .50 cal with everything on it and a box of ammo as 168.

    ****, I'm getting rusty.

    Shitty pay, long deployments, and Bean Burrito MREs already do that.

    I thought that the bean burrito was one of the better ones. Certainly a lot better than beef steak with mushrooms or that jambalaya mess.

    Bean Burritos taste like plastic-covered turds. Beef & Mushrooms is awesome.

    I think we got a bronzed 60 in a trophy case at work. The kids in the gun teams carry the mk48 now.

    And bean burrito? What about ham slice? I wouldnt even feed that **** to a fuckin dog.

    I'd rather choke down Ham Slice than Bean Burrito. Granted though, I actually liked the "Four Fingers of Death."

    Dude, can you even fucking fathom a guess as to how old those m&ms and skittles packages are??? I would say at least 10 years

    I bet you still eat them though, right? :D

    I gotta say, maybe it was being hungry or just none other to compare to at the time, but the peanut butter in MREs was always damn good. Not too many commerical brands can compare.

    Since you guys are talking MRE's, i'd like to ask you an army cuisine question.

    Just got through a piece of pulp fiction, main character in the book raved about army coffee.

    Is it actually good? or was that part of the book fictionalized too?
