    That makes two of us. Being a retired Air Force Combat Arms instructor I've taken more classes and have more practical experience on weapons than the average person. Anything from a 38 S&W revolver to a MK-19 full auto grenade launcher. Repair and maintenance, instruction and providing tactical training to SP's and qualification training to all other AF personnel. As an AF instructor we had to maintain a higher proficiency on all weapons and courses of training that we provided. Anything less than an expert rating on was not acceptable. I still pop off a mag or two every day just to get my fix of burnt powder! ;)
