    USMC, interesting changes in riflery:

    I was always impressed with rifle training in The Corps. Looks like some changes are coming, and probably pretty good ones:

    "More realistic and challenging."

    I'm glad at least one thing in this world hasn't succumbed to participation trophies and ice cream for everybody.

    Looks like an improved and more relevant course of fire. Challenging. And sounds like fun.

    I would have Loved that over sitting cross-legged, "snapping in" for a week on a 'target' painted on a fifty-five gallon drum....

    Sounds more like a cost saving measure than an improvement.

    Longer doesn't mean better. I think realistic training is always best. Moving targets, good too. I'd like to try the course out. Looks like fun.
