Default Picked up a few things today

Well,

I've been at the range for the past two days for quarterly qualifications and to attend a mandatory class for the M-4. Do you realize how boring and painful it is to sit in a class for 4 hours and try and follow along with an instructor on something you can do in your sleep but you have to stay with the class so you don’t come off as a sh*t head know it all.

The only good thing is I got to keep all the brass for the class. Here is the bucket I brought home of Federal once fired brass. Not a complete waste of time.

Well I guess it wasn't a total loss!

I'm estimating about 2500 to 3000 rounds.

Well, that will keep you busy for a while. (Like you really need to be busier. )

I do know how tiresome it is to sit through a class like that. But I didn't get a bucket of brass out of the deal.

Every year at work we got to attend the same class on fire extinguishers.
Finally, the last year the division was still "in business," we got to take the class on the computer.
Gone from a 30-60 minute class to about 10 minutes of pressing the next button to get to the questions.
