Depends on where their duty station is too, I believe . As of 5 years ago Okinawa was still issuing A2's. Pendleton is issuing A4's. It's a boom stick. Put it through hell. Clean the crap out of it. Name is Suzy. Let your wife get jealous. Then you shall have a Marine weapon.

Don't forget to become familiar with the "6 inch barrel". All the Devils on here will never forget theirs lol.

And for the love of the Corps. Don't buy it for a range queen. Please? Lol.

Then make sure to back off of the PC gaming and get into some serious PT gaming.

Three miles, push ups, pull ups and look up the combat fit test.

You'll get an awakening when you get to Boot. No more pansy time. No more "you time". You train,eat, and sleep for 3 months straight, just for Boot. Your outlook on life will change.

Get in the best shape of your life. You'll still come out stronger. You'll learn to think critically when you can hardly stand or stay awake.

But hey. It's the most fun you'll ever have in your life!!
