Ain't nobody laughing here, that indeed, was some valuable and seriously important training and skills, administered at the right time in your life.

USAF Security Police Combat School, Camp Bullis, TX circa 1974....with many thanks to a couple of instructors who took the time to do some additional training.

I did that at Lackland. It was intense. The SERE training I did at Fairchild as well as here at Langley has helped too

Wow...inadequacy to the max, guys


Great to hear what sort of intense training people have had; there's a hell of a lot of very skilled people here. Consider me officially impressed

Asian Zone Readiness....Air Base Ground Defense....it's still Combat School. Live fire training with handguns, full-auto rifles, shotguns, .30 caliber and .50 caliber machine guns, grenade launchers and even mortars. Land nav, patrol and perimeter security, assault and evade tactics....etc etc. Semi-primitive living conditions (tents and outhouses) when I was there.
I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I could.

LOL, did it in 1974 also, November. Brrrrrrrrr. Then went and flew security on the 141's out of Anderson and Clark into Ton Son Nhut Air Base during the pull out after the baby lift C-5 went down. Had TNT (terrorist neutralization training) July of 1975 at Fort Bragg, NC. Good times.

I have to say that my worst firearms training was in the military. I wasn't infantry or special forces, but I was still expected to be able to shoot if necessary. I only learned the basics, which is why it's called "basic" training.

I'm very happy to know that you guys who went in for the guts and glory are extremely pleased with your training. I have no doubt that you learned from the best, and I'm proud of, and for, all of you. Thank you SO MUCH for your service! (insert missing salute icon here)

By FAR, my best instruction has been private instruction. I have also learned a lot by simply hanging out on the range interacting with other shooters, and watching and entering formal matches.

You got that right.
Considering the barrel time a pellet spends in an air rifle vs. a bullet in a high powered rifle - that really teaches you to hold hard on a target. Shooting an air rifle is one of the best things a highpower shooter can do in the off season IMO. Especially for off hand. I sunk $800 into a Beeman rifle to use during the winter for practice and ended up with a reward of 96% - 97% in my offhand scores.
