  1. This is what the shooter himself has t osay about that. From the link I posted...
  2. "Mercenary Sniper in Iraq" Seems to be a bit of a negative title. Anyway, this video was originally posted on ar15.com. The guy you see in the video is actually a member there and comments on various things in this thread.
  3. I've noticed they recieve good reviews on amazon as well. I hope to read them in the near future.
  4. I had not heard those before, thanks. Well they sounded... INTENSE! I hope they release video to go along with those.
  5. Yes, it's very cool. The nail gun is my favorite though.
  6. AMF shooting something which I can't ID, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't made to be fired unsupported... Clicky
  7. I'm recently finished reading Michael Shaara's novel about Gettysburg, The Killer Angels. I hadn't picked up a single book on the Civil War before reading this. Heck, the only reason I even started reading it was because it's required reading for school. At first I didn't think I could get into something like the Civil War, it didn't seem interesting. I was dead wrong. The Killer Angels is a masterpiece. Since finishing it I have been looking into other books on the Civil War, and I've been reading up on guys like Col. Joshua Chamberlin and General Pickett like there's no tomorrow. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone interested in the military. Even those of you who only read things on Delta, SEALs, SF, ect. You will enjoy the book. Amazon has great user reviews that cover all the stuff I forgot to mention. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...311929?v=glance Have a safe night, Chuck.
  8. Wouldn't call PSD's "Merc's". They provide physical security for clients, train security forces, ect. Defensive roles. PBS did a thing on them not too long ago, you can watch the entire thing online. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/warriors/view/ By the way, Blackwater does indeed has several state side training facilities that millitary, LEO's, and even civilians can receive lessons. Blackwater even has it's own air wing! http://www.blackwaterusa.com/
  9. I was just going to post this, hehe. Anyway, it's a must read. I was in tears because I laughed so hard.
  10. What's the status of the HMS Ark Royal? Will she be decommissioned soon as well? If she hasn't already... I only ask because I got a tour of her when I was about 6 years old and I enjoyed it very much.
  11. Yes, specifically by Aussie's and Kiwi's. http://www.britains-smallwars.com/Vietnam/SP.htm
  12. I think the guy holding the L1A1/FAL is an Aussie. Perhaps SASR.
  13. Looks like some Diggers in those screens. Perhaps SASR. I just watched the video, looks like the game is coming along well.
  14. Better link, no need to sign up... http://www.armytimes.com/story.php?f=1-292925-976420.php
  15. Good going so far dude! Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.
  16. I enjoyed the book. Especially the stuff about the 10th Group in the North.
  17. Woot! Anyway, I hope it's not released while I'm at El Cid.
