Yes, this is fact. And to give credit to my Leather Neck Cousins, I am quite certain that they STRONGLY recommend that it is not used just for the reasons that I mentioned. Marines seem to be a little more affectionate of their firearms arms than most. Not sure why.
I appreciate your service!!!! Much Respect!!
