    Roger that DocBoCook,
    Agree: "We all know that the S.E.A.Ls don't count."
    They still use the M-60 as a 7.62 hand-held MG,
    IMHO that is heavy-duty fire-power. BUD's 4 life
    Never met a SEAL I wasn't running away from off duty, or in training.

    Tie for real fun...
    M60A1 firing a 105mm APDS...
    AH-1G firing the pylon mounted 20mm from the left inboard

    Worst US Mil Weapon
    M73 Coax, back on the big boys (M60A1's)....to say it was unreliable, jammed all the time and was worthless is to give it a compliment. Happiest day of my career as a tanker is when we were issued brand new Belgian made M240's....

    Most interesting...
    M3A1 grease gun...took about as long to load the mag as it did to empty it

    First Mil weapon fired
    M14 at Camp Pendleton

    Last US gubmint Mil weapon fired

    An the absolute most fun you can have while hanging it out there, scaring yourself to death....salvo'ing 2.75 FFAR during night diving fire, trying to hit the target without getting tgt fixation and burying yourself. Cobra's.....man they were fun!

    I was never as good as my brother with the M-14. He got to go to sniper school and use the M-14 sniper version in Nam. I really liked it when I got to play with it later.

  5. I was 17 when I qualified at Fort Ord with an M14. Went to Vietnam at 18. I spent some time in the back of a war wagon. 45, M16, M79, M60, and the 50 cal, 360 degree turret mounted. I forget, was that called an M50? My favorite was the M14. I had good eyes then. I had 60 out of 61 hits. Aim low can't miss.
