    The worst piece of TA-50 i have by far is a set of trigger mittens, i've had them forever never worn them, don't know where they are, lost the liners.

    My M-16 when my M-9 is more than enough for my line of duty. Oh and my radio holster that puts my radio antenna right under my damn arm so it can snag on everything from my M-16 sling to my seatbelt. One better, my load bearing equipment harness that rides up behind my neck with my IBA on...it is all a bunch of crap. I am quickly learning to hate this job.

    motherfucking dot. Any fucking hat that takes more than 10 seconds and one hand to put on in a non-combat environment is stupid in the extreme.

    The next most worthless piece of equipment I've been issued has to be the helmet liner. For the older-type helmet. My helmet is the new Kevlar type. I looked at the supply guy with both of them in my hands and a ":hsugh:" look on my face. He gave me a ":hs:" look and told me to not lose it.

    O yeah i forgot, the old sweat band for the old kevlar with the metal clips rather than velcro. Is it even possible to attach those things into the kevlar?

    I like mine, it's all pretty, silver, and new. Way nicer than the hat I had for JROTC. The leather band seems to make all the difference in the world, and the silver.

    Correct. When we deploy we'll have stuff like a weapon and flak jacket issued. The day to day normal ops stuff we pay for.

    I dunno...I wore a Beret when I was AFJROTC because I was Drill Team and Rifle Team, but I hated the fucking Dixie Cups in the Navy. I was glad when the uniform regs made the switch to a "Command Ballcap" instead for wear in Dungarees.

    Dress Blues/Dress Whites. i hate these fucking uniforms, gay ass flap, bell bottoms, and a fucking neckerchief. hey navy, it's the 21st century. you think we could possibly upgrade our 230 year old uniforms?

    but they're so functional.:rofl:

    appearantly they expect you to fall into the sea at some point in your dress whites ao you have to use your oh so stylish pants as a flotation device. I dunno what the flap is for and the neckerchief is another questionable item. I'm sure it had it's reason back 230 years ago when it wasn't about tradition.
