I never really like the M4a1 because it didn't have enough ammo for my liking.
I'd like either one if I got a full auto!

The two pouches were carried on a black hawk gear belt with my M9 in a drop holster.

I also had a mag in my pocket. Back up.
Yep been there.
I don't know about the Marines, but the Army like to but the smallest male or female carrying the SAW. I would see this at the range or at the bigger Base camps. I would have to laugh .
But then again every one is small when your 6'6"

I was considered "small" when I was in shape. 5'11" and about 170 pounds (155 in Afghanistan).

One of my instructors is 6'6" I was working on a tune up yesterday, I have to practically sit on top of the engine to see the valve train, he walks over to check it and his shoulders are practically level with the top of the engine, so frustrating.

In other news, the only thing that seriously sucks about having to move back into student housing is not being able to keep my guns here. :'(

No that's average. I am talking 5'4" to 5'7" type.

Maybe it's because most of my friends were bigger than me.

We had a butter bar Louie we nick named "headshot". Like 7 feet tall I think...

It's even funnier when you see a shot person with a 240B. The dam thing drags the ground all most.
