Thanks.  Marines were my number one choice when I tried to enlist.  I've got a long history of Marines in the family and I was going to continue the tradition.  But ya, it's great to be able to go the ranges and fire shoot away the frustration.

To ad you couldn't join us in the marines, but atleast you still get to shoot your rifle. I love going to the range and shooting my m16...and the best parti is I don't have to pay for bullets to do it. lol.
That's me in the pic in case you were wondering.

Ya, must be nice not to have to pay for ammunition. lol.  It's not too bad.  I end up going to the range for two hours and spending about 30 bucks on 100 rounds of ammunition.  Since the range is indoors I have to buy copper .223 REM rounds.  It sounds like a small amount of ammo, but when firing a semi-auto weapon on single shot, its not that bad.  The range is indoors and has a maximum distance of 50 yards (150 feet).  There is an automated targeting machine that sends the target out to a selected distance so what I'll do is bring it in after every three shots, mark my hits and send it back out.  Doing it this way makes the time go by very quickly and yet I am still using a small amount of ammo.

50 yards... you need to find an outdoor range lol. When we shoot to qualify we shoot at 200, 300, and 500 yards, with the regular iron sights, then we move to the 100 yard to fire at moving targets then the 50-25-and 15., those we shoot on burst( which is hella fun.).

I agree 50 yards is nothing, but the weather was not favorable for shooting outdoors.  The wind was unbelieveable and there was a mix of rain too.  While I understand that weather conditions such as these may occur in combat, this is not combat and i didn't feel like dealing with windage and what not.  Ya there are a lot of outdoor ranges here, one with a maximum of 500 yards.  I've only fired on the 500 yard rangea couple times, but I've been using the 300 yard range, which is awesome.
