I'm prior Army Infantry and just because someone is in a combat arms MOS doesn't mean they know anything about firearms past pointing and shooting and your typical holdover stuff.

Now there are classes one can take, such as sniper school, that will teach a soldier more advanced things. Don't get ahead of yourself you have yet to graduate

Never Forget.

There are so many hogs in east Texas they had a helicopter come in and shoot them the helicopter crew shot 1800 pigs in 3 days and didn't even put a dent in the population around here
