Y'all guys know all about this..
But you ladies? Y'all have your female issues. Here's a male issue for you...
One of the worst things about being a man, is that moment when you get out of the shower, not a stitch on, and decide that now is a good time to sit down on that hard kitchen chair, leaned over in preparation to clip your toenails. Then you discover that chair suddenly has squishy padding. Damn.

I picked up a New England R73 with 6 inch bull barrel.....the twin to my New England R92 22lr with 6 inch bull barrel. Now if I can just track down the 22 mag version i'd have the complete set!

with the 6 inch barrel & it only being a 5 shot it's not my choice for carry but I can use those 85 grain JHP's & load them for my snub nose 6-shot 32 S&W long. haven't shot the 327 but hear that's just a nasty little bugger, power & speed comparable to a 357 mag.

I've found a new fun game at the range, I let people shoot all 9 out of my R92, then I go back to the car to "reload" & hand them the R73. They are identical in size & weight & so far nobody has noticed the difference 'till they fire the first shot. Then there's usually a pause & then a "what the hell just happened" look on their face from the extra noise & recoil. good times

Well congratulations! Be prepared, your first Chief is going to be brutally honest with you and tell you, "you still don't know ****.... Sir."

And he'll only be about 30 years older than you!

By the way, I forgot to mention this.

Congrats are in order, Cinder scored 100% on her shop test today. That puts her at 100% for that whole phase.

The way I understand it, the course is broken up into several phases, dealing with several different areas. She's just finished the driveline (?) portion I guess? Going from the transmission to the wheels pretty much.

I don't know much about it, really. Except that I couldn't do it.

Thanks trip. I have heard that advice already, multiple times. I guess the good thing is I am going into aviation so I have a few years of schooling ahead of me. By the time I actually get to a deployable command where I will have people I'm in charge of I should be a Lieutenant (O-3)

Not trying to bring you down or brow beat you man! Senior enlisted like to mess with new officers. The good new officers get pranks and jokes pulled on them, so you know you're doing something right if they're laughing at you occasionally
