I've been in the fence about joining the military for almost half a decade and after spending those years aimlessly pissing potential careers away, I still think about joining - I am however a dual national and have the option between U.S and U.K armed forces.

It's my understanding that you leave the British military with very little in terms of 'benefits' but it's a much more 'humane' form of existence versus the hell that is the American military which however provides better long term benefits.

Benefits being future qualifications, monetary compensation and programs (education etc).

I'm not particularly well versed in if this is the case but I'm looking for some enlightenment. At the end of the day I'm looking for post-service pros like working qualifications and potentially contracting.

In Americas case I think they do, but I'm born U.S, dual U.K. Given that U.S is my primary I shouldn't have to revoke if I join.

Britain isn't too concerned IIRC, but if it were the case between revoking I'd have to stick with U.K.

IIRC you can be an enlisted and have dual citizenship in the US military, but the DOD won't offer any security clearances if you hold dual citizenship. Being a UK citizen almost certainly won't be an issue but they will make you renounce it depending on what you do.

I'm coming up on the end of my contract with the Guard and have been thinking the same thing. It seems that no, there wouldn't be a problem. You'd probably get a conditional release because you're joining an an army that's allies with the US.

That said, I've talked to some IDF vets. They tell me that due to the state of warfare there, politics and the military are even more connected than it is here, and that people are always out to get you. But the people I talk to were draftees, so they may be coming from a different place than someone who volunteered to do it.

I say see where it goes. Go Guard and who knows, maybe we'll be going back to the sandbox soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Spoonfeed yourself, retard.

And OP, see >>33442701. Kicking you out of the class for it was stupid, but the instructor was right, don't hold it that way.
>>
I think OP is saying that he learned to keep his trigger finger wrapped around the grip under the guard until ready to shoot, unlike his picture, which is what everyone who knows what they're doing does.

OP, you're even more of a retard than you let on to begin with. Listen to your instructor.
>>
Since I don't hold a gun like a retard, I don't ever loosen my grip while holding a gun, so I never drop it nor reflexively tighten my grip. You're creating the problem you think you're solving. The instructor is right, you are wrong. Stop being retarded.

>Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with this logic.

the entire concept is fundamentally flawed.

Development of more advanced metallurgy has nothing whatsoever to do with the abandoning of armour.

That is entirely down to the development of more efficient corned gunpowder that produced sufficient energy to punch through armour, irrespective of its thickness. late medieval armour was bullet-resistant - many harnesses have a dent mark showing they can stop a bullet - the "proof" mark that is the origin of the word "bulletproof".

17th century siege armour, used in the 30 years' war and English Civil war was, bulletproof. But to be so, it was also so thick that it made the wearer severely encumbered - 70+lbs of plate, compared to the 40lbs of a 15th century harness which was not restricting in mobility or agility. It reached the point where the human skeleton was unable to support the extra weight and still fight effectively.

As such, the harness was abandoned, not despite metallurgical advancement, but because metallurgical advancement was insufficient to allow effective protection against the weapons in common use - therefore meaning it was more effective to abandon it entirely, than be completely impaired by its use for no gain.

Despite later hints in favor of the Airbus' AS532 Cougar, army experts are strongly recommending the purchase of UH-1Y Venom, that might be later complemented by its sister model AH-1Z Viper.

Having already experience with Bell-412s from the police service, Czech Army would nonetheless become the first foreign user of the Venom.

Work at a gun store and here's my 2 cents
I'd avoid any scope rifle combo unless the rifle you want is the combo, then ditch that scope and get a decent one. Usually the scopes on those rifles are trash.
Remingtons are okay, not great and not God awful. That being said their QC has gone down significantly over a decade ago. I'd still recommend it for a first time user but if change a lot of their stuff like bolt and stock. Their 5R barrels are decent
Very basic level of say savage axis and maybe ruger American in .308
Best option is Tikka t3, such a great rifle for the price and it's 1 MOA out of the box

But, just as your choice of rifle is important, your glass is just as important if not more. I'd much rather have a 1000 dollar scope on a 100 dollar rifle than the other way around. Some good brands are Vortex and Leopold, vortex for the price and quality. Diamondback is a good series but Viper is even better. I spend at least half on glass than my rifle

Also take into consideration other costs and things like ammo, scope rings, mount, possibly a bipod. Also don't be that dildo that spends 1000 on their setup to only use fucking Tula .308 ammo. You don't have to buy match but just don't buy fucking steel case and complain to me why your group sucks

Nigger it's LEUPOLD. With a U. If you work there at least spell the damn brand right.

And as to why to NOT shoot Tula/Wolf: Their bullets are way undersized and all over the place on weight. Pic related was pulled from an old lot of Wolf-rebranded Tula (Wolf WPA 55gr FMJ "5.56"). Supposed to be .224", came out .208".
