Rikoshay. Great too see you back. God bless you and thanks for serving.
Our M16s in Nam we still had the 20 round clips. The old timers told me to only put 19 rounds in my mag or it would jam. O.K. sounds good to me.
They put me on a chopper. Dropped me off on some hill in God knows where with no ammo, no cleaning equipment, no sight in of the weapon, no freaking idea of what the hell I was doing. HMM. This is gonna be fun. Oh yeah.
The next morning I was on patrol with my new found friends, yeah right.
Hey you guys don't mind me asking like a dumn question "Uh who the hell am I supposed to be shooting??" HAA HAA Ha you FNG if you don't like the son of a bitch kill him. HAA Haa. Holy S$%^#T Gezz Mom where are you when I need you.
My buddy was a Marine and they dropped him off in the middle of a battle with NO weapon. Told him to find a dead Marine and use his. He don't need it no more.
Only once in 12 months can I remember cleaning my M16. It never failed me. Even without cleaning it. It was not that we didn't want to clean them. We got dropped off in the jungle and stayed there for 12 months. Plus no one gave us cleaning equipment.
For that I rate the 16 good. For stopping power yuk doo doo nah. Our troops need a better round.
