    That video was awesome, made my day.

    As for the interchangable magazine bit, yeah the M249 does have a place where you can slap in one of your 16 mags if you run out of ammo with the drum. The shitty part is, it tends to jam a lot easier using a mag than a drum though. The 240 can be pretty heavy after a while, if I remember right it weighs somewhere around 27 pounds. Definitely better to hump one of those fuckers around though compared to a Mark 19. The gun alone weighs 168 or so, add in the ammo and the tripod and you have a group of very unhappy Marines.
    The Mark 19 is only about 80 pounds, but it is also the coolest thing ever.

    Bean Burrito MRE? Jambalaya? What in the blue ****?

    When I enlisted we still had the Omlette with Ham and Chicken ala King. Both were mysteriously tinted green if I remember correctly.

    I was at a range in Panama where a female soldier picked off a crow perched on one of the metal range border signs using a MK 19. It was beautiful... *thwunk*, *pop*, *feathers*.

    I've had the jambalaya.

    It's decent.

    The vegetarian meal sucks though.

    EDIT: I'm not sure I'd trust a bean burrito MRE.

    Since I've been running MOUT training for the last 2 months I've been using the SAW and love it alot. When I have a squad come and and the SAW gunner is jacked up or thei idiots fail to use him properly I kill him and its Dual SAWs (aka Tony Montonya Time!) LOTS of fun!

    I'm not sure when they phased em out, I know we got a batch of the older ones during SOI and I got fucked with the omelette. Nastiest **** ever.

    I have never heard of those either, but I got out in '95.

    Back then, when we were out in the field, guys used to fight (literally) over the chicken a la king. I also remember that the dehydrated pork pattie MRE was to be avoided at all costs. I hope they shitcanned those evil fuckers.

    Does anybody still refer to MREs as meals refusing to exit? Or are they better now?
    Shut the hell up and train.

    People still like to badmouth them; but they really aren't all that bad. The cold weather rations are actually really good.
