    This week has been THE worst fucking range week ever.

    Every morning we have to be there at 0415 which is nothing new but sucks none the less.
    7 Relays-
    Monday we had 30-40mph winds blowing taking out about 22 targets during the course of the day and blowing numerous things over the berm. We didn't get done until 2130 :mad: :mad: and all I got to do was do a bullshit bzo on my weapon in the wind around 1830 when I finally got out of the pits.

    Yesterday same shit but less wind only more rain.

    Today (Qual Day of course) less wind, but lightning and rain then some sun broke.
    I should have just not showed up and been a range drop rather than go unk today. :madfawk:

    You have to qualify every year with your weapon


    1) Got issued new weapon
    2)waking up early sucks
    3) Horrible weather
    4)Stuck at the range for three times the amount of time we should have to be there
    5) Failed to qualify

    :dunno: I think that sums it up for you civilians

    I got a new weapon issued to me. Now I just have to wait for an open slot for them to send me before the deployment.
