Default not sure where to put this thread

I recently watched machine gun preacher and it kind of got me thinking...where could an american citizen go to get actual combat experience (not in the us military) without getting in trouble with the us government? Is that even possible in today's world? Not wanting combat experience, just one of those thoughts I can't get to go away.

Joining a militia/ minuteman group could get some good training but nothing is better than the real things. that sense of breaking you down is what makes training legit and useful.

Or, like the above said, go to Chicago

If you are serious, apply to a security contracting company that works overseas like Triple Canopy.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

Define combat.

Get a job as a Corrections Officer. Work as a bouncer. There are legal firms that perform armed security for US interests in foreign nations (think Blackwater and similar companies)- however, they are usually looking for Alumni of military combat. Join the Legion Etrangere.

Please note that serving in the military of another nation is fraught with legal problems.

Or go find the local paintballers if you want to spend Sunday afternoons playing games in the woods. There are worse things you can do.

Like I said...the thought came to me after watching machine gun preacher. At the end of the movie it said he still goes over there to fight to this day. I guess I just don't understand how a united states civilian is getting away with fighting rebels in an African country. With that thought came the thought about could any us citizen do such things, or is it because he is doing so much for the children that nothing is said to him about killing men in another country...

And c3, I have been in the army reserves (mp) and was a corrections officer for the commonwealth of Kentucky in a psychiatric center for the prisons. There was some definite "combat" in the psych center...it just usually involved fecal matter. And never saw any combat in the reserves...never left the states in fact.
