Default How to spot a phony Seal poser....

It's already starting folks, the posers are coming out with the latest OBL events. I ran into one at the range just this morning. He asked me about my Cammenga AR mags and when I complemented him on his Seal trident hat, the conversation went into how he was a former Navy Seal. Well then, after talking about the OBL operation, I made a few referenced queries, and he started to look just a bit nervous and I could start to see the panic in his eyes. I asked for his BUDS graduation class number, he studdered, turned pale and just walked away with his AR and got in his truck and left. He left 200 rounds of 5.56 NATO ammo on the bench. I do thank you for the ammo there Jason.

BTW, have I mentioned I hate posers...and video war game, educated experts.

But again, that's just me.....

I agree man, good for you on calling him out.

It really makes me mad with these posers. People like me wanted desperately to enlist and serve only to be rejected on medical reasons. I would never dishonor our military by posing like that. It makes me mad when others do it.

Good for you Jack for calling him out and nice score on the ammo.

Never seen a poser my self... must be a not volunteer state thing. So many people who are currently serving or previously served that you run a real good chance of someone who would have served with you regardless of what you did. Hell, only 2 of my friends arent current/exmilitary. I would be right there with em if it wasnt for scoliosis. 88 asvab wasted because of a damn bone disorder

I had lunch with a former SEAL and a mutual friend once; nice guy, but obviously not the most "normal" person in the room. He was the strangest close friend of one of the strangest guys i went to college with. He said he quit/left due to the long wait between missions. I got the idea that he wouldn've gladly done shooters of adrenaline on a bet. I would NOT want one of those guys to catch me wearing their hat.


Lunch? It was sushi of course & no, i didn't make fun of that at the time.

If only you could've clapped your hands against your sides and made some seal barks as duder left.

I usually run into the "former Special Forces, but I was really an assasin for the CIA" types. Usually just tell them I never saw them at any of the meetings, or the potluck dinner.

But yes, the Seals are gonna be coming out of the woodwork. Gonna be so many members of Team 6 that I doubt that would all fit in Dam Neck VA.
