Machines Don't Fight Wars. People Do, and They Use Their Minds.~Col John R. Boyd, USAF


Sergeant Padron of the U.S. Army's Dagger Company, 2-12 Infantry, 4th Brigade hangs upside down while blindfolded as he practices reassembling a gun at Michigan Base in the Pesh Valley in Afghanistan's Kunar Province July 24, 2009. Afghanistan will hold a presidential election on August 20, 2009.

Maybe in the future wars will be fought by machines like in the sifi movies, but until then, it will be our young men and women doing dirty, frightening things for us.

Bytheway, He's putting a 9mm M9 (Beretta mod 92 in Civilain terms) together.
It's so easy and caveman can do it.
For a challange, I'll take apart an M9, M11 (SIG 9mm) and M4 and throw all the parts into a box and blindfold myself and put them all together.
Try it at a party sometime.
