    So I'm headed back to Hawaii and I just found out that I have a little bit more training to do. But the good kind!

    Once I get back to base I have to go to school again for SLAMC conducted by Pu'uloa Marksmanship Training Unit at Kaneohe Bay Range Training Facility. I am so excited I can't even begin to explain to you guys. If I qualify, I can carry the MK 12 or M27 IAR on my next deployment. So I'm going to be gone for a few weeks after Friday for this class because it starts Monday, so I wanted to leave you guys with a question for debate while I'm gone. :)

    If you could create a round for a semi-automatic handgun, with any characteristics such as caliber, penetration, size, weight, anything; what would you create? Something in between a .380 and 9mm? Heavier than a 338 lapua? ;)

    You tell me? I'll check back till Friday at 0900 but then I gotta catch a flight. :D

    Anyone gunna miss me? :confused:

    I don't know much about calibers, penetration, size, weight, etc. I am pretty new to firearms and I'm here to learn.

    But, yeah, I'm gunna miss you. You are a MARINE. What more could one ask for?

    Is it possible to fall in love with a hypothetical gun?

    You kind of killed it with the originality statement. I've seen a semi auto Barrett .50 made into a pistol. Also read about this being done in a sci fi book. I'd want one for each hand, so long as I could handle it (doubtful). I've played around with some 2 gun mojo a few times and discovered that I'm actually pretty good at it (relatively speaking).

    Some of us fall in love with imaginary women (or men, if it applies) all the stinkin time. My wife did. She married the uniform and not the man wearing it. It's all good though, 7 years later and I've kind of grown on her.

    Sorry, it was my parents M&P .40's. They were matching at least, 2 mags through each. 2 different targets, 42 hits out of 52 rounds.

    I was really surprised by how accurately I

    could shoot both at once,but I am a big

    guy. It seems like Hollywood BS,

    but it was very do-able, and

    sick fun...

    The problem I ran into was reloading. There just really is no good way to do it. I can't find any of those spring loaded magazine rack thingys that Angeline Jolie had in Lara Croft. But lets face it, there's only one reason I watched that movie anyway.
