    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    BRASS
    Breath
    Relax
    Aim
    Stop Breathing
    Squeeze

    Clear front site tip.

    Squeeze the trigger slowly don't jerk it its not your dick.

    When you shot goes off it should be a surprise don't anticipate the discharge.

    Learn to strap in correctly. Find your natural shot then adjust. Move your body not the rifle.

    Shooting with iron sites is like learning to drive a standard transmission. You never know when you will need the skill.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    If my EOTech, EL-CAN, and visible and IR lasers all stop working, I am pretty sure my situation is going to be fucked up enough that it doesn't really matter if I have iron sights mounted on my weapon or not. And truthfully, I carry my iron sights mounted and zeroed behind my EL-CAN, but very few people in the community do.

    Survival in my line of work has not actually come down to iron sights when other optics come into play. Ever. Learning to shoot with iron sights is fine, but its silly to waste much time working with them regularly after that.

    If you're going airforce then learning how to shoot probably isn't the highest on your list, especially if your joining because of the quality of life.

    Go outside, find a big piece of **** and pick it up in your bare hands. Don't want to? That's the average sentiment of an airforce dude picking up a rifle.
    Why? The rest of them joined for the same reason as you want to.

    I hate instructing students and have them say I already know how to shoot. I already know how to march. I already know first aid.
    They ALWAYS feel the need to pass on advice to other recruits. And I know you're going to say "Well don't worry about me, I'll just keep my mouth shut".
    Wrong. Everyone says that. No one keeps their mouth shut, the need is just too much for people to keep it to themselves.

    If your dad is a former marine (didn't you say force recon?) and champion pistol shooter then listen to him.
    As far as getting ready just work on PT. (Something everyone also already pretends they do, but don't)
    When i first started training at my school, my instructor showed me an armbar from guard. I drilled it, and learned it, and he asked if i already knew it. I told him i'd seen it a few times. Armbar from guard was the first sub I ever learned, but i learned the importance a long time ago of keeping your mouth shut.

    That being said, I do find it very hard, when i see someone doing something i perceive as wrong, to not try and "correct" them. I'm slowly getting out of this habit, but its hard. I'm hoping the fear of God will keep this nonsense from rearing its ugly head.

    As far as not wanting to pick up a rifle...Hell, I love firearms. Hell, I'm 17, and learned how to take apart and put together a ar-15 blindfolded (in less the 20 minutes...but yeah, its really not that impressive, as its not complicated...)


    I mean, the more i think about it, the more the Army seems like it'd be a better fit for my type of personality (ie, i'm not interested in being a, "sissy who galavants around pretending to be in a branch of the military" as someone put it so delicately)

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    If you choose the equivalent MOS in the Army, you will end up somewhere shitty. You're not old enough to be picked up by a SOCOM unit.

    I'm not sure what I'd want to do in the Army, admittedly.

    During the day we shoot on the run and have very few chances to get a good site picture, steady position, controlled breathing, etc. And at night we shoot at muzzle flashes.

    I understand the basic principles of marksmanship but the reality of things in Iraq or Afghanistan puts things back in perspective.
