If you were infantry, it should be thousands. Upon thousands. If that was your specialty.

Most target practices are done in semi 8 rounds at 400m and then 2-3 p/year are done in automatic 18 rounds.

It’s not like you get to fire as many as you want.


No but you should get out in the field.

I think our boys go out for 2 weeks at a time or more, living off the land and eating witchety grubs.

Even I had to do 2 weeks once trying to get away from them and not get captured. And they had Aboriginal Trackers which look at your poo and foot prints and stuff. :roll:

Those are special forces that train living off the land and all that… I was just a normal infantry dude.

I was talking about Infantry too. They would go out in the field all the time. Only food they had is what they can carry in ration packs, then they're on their own for days at a time.

So you even go hunting for your food, at the risk of capture. You would fish, try all kinds of berries and exotic fruit from trees (poisonous stuff too), find water and all kinds of stuff. A bit like Bear Grills. Survival.

Aboriginal Trackers would kill Australian natives and you would eat that too. All kinds of stuff including Snakes as Kleftiko. Emu, Kangaroo, Crocodile, and even bugs and maggots.

yes lots of Kleftiko because no smoke.

I guess everyone’s infantry training is custom designed for the land they’re meant to defend. Cyprus is small and there are no jungles or remote places so we mostly do defend/capture slopes and urban training like defend/capture the building etc.

That looks like an M16 on the right for sure...
The gear?
It's all American funded isn't it?


Also, can you please refrain from directly addressing threads to me please?

I don't find the attention welcome.

it would be greatly appreciated if you can address any threads to the forum at large and not me.

It's starting to get very ridiculous and I am pretty much on the brink of quitting the forum permanently because of all the personal threads.

i'm not having a go at you as you probably did it innocently, unlike others, but my patience is starting to wear very thin at these kinds of threads.


:lol: Idiot :twisted:
