Do You Like Machine Guns…Well This Is For You !
I must say, when I was in the United States Army, the best time I ever had, was going to the firing range and sending massive amounts of ammo down-range. There really is nothing in the world like it. That is of course, unless someone is shooting back at you, then that puts a damper on the whole experience. Luckily for these young Marines in the video below, nobody’s shoot back at them. When you fire one of these weapons, you almost experience a slight feeling of invincibility, because you know who ever is at the other end, isn’t going to stick his head up and if he does, he won’t have it for very long.
The video below shows U.S. Marines with Battalion Landing Team, 3rd Battalion 5th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit conducted machine gun firing tests with the Browning M2 .50 Caliber Machine Gun and M240G Medium Machine Guns at the Central Training Area, Okinawa, Japan. The training was designed to verify the operational effectiveness of the unit’s weapon systems and to improve the unit’s skills operating machine guns.
