I'm pretty sure that's not a .50, looks like a 25mm to me. Cool pic regardless.

I thought that was pretty serious mount for a .50 but don't know no better. I just noticed the ammo belt, yeah - bigger than .50.

Yea the rounds are about the size of a Budweiser bottle, if I can ever find my camera I have some pics of a 6'5" tall 240lb hamfisted gunners mate loading a similar weapon mount. The rounds make his hands look small, and he can palm a coke can and make it dissapear.

Since I'm bumping the appropriate humor thread and not adding anything, I will give you this! Here's a hint, he's a radioman and his new call sign is Headshot.

Why is this marine so happy? Well he just got shot in the head! No that's not a joke about marine intelligence, you would be happy too if you took a shot to the head by a 7.62x54r Dragunov and were still able to smoke a cigarette 15 minutes later. His helmet took the impact and deflected the bullet, full story and a pic of the round they pulled out from next to his spine here http://marinecorpstimes.com/news/2011/0 ... e-040511w/

He walked to the medivac under his own power, and after arriving at the hospital, was quoted as saying this “It’s one of those things where I feel like I’ve been given an unearned vacation,” he said of his 30-day recovery. “In the surgical ward, I was only one of two gunshot wounds. Everyone else, they’re all guys who have lost legs to [improvised explosive devices]. I look at those guys, and I think, ‘Do I really deserve a Purple Heart compared to these guys?’ ”

Uhh yea, I think he does. :lmao:

Normally, I HATE it when something bad happens & people say "You're lucky, it could have been worse." Or in a case like this, "You're lucky you were almost killed."

If this were me, I might be willing to let it go this time :laugh:
Here's to a speedy recovery :patriot:

There is a Veteran's Sanctuary at ISU, one of the members is a guy named Ahu.
I was talking to a veteran in my speech class, trying to get her to come down, say hi & see what we can do to help her out. She said she knew about the sanctuary from a guy named Ooah. Yup, she's a marine :laugh:

It says in the article the army and marines are testing new helmets designed to stop those types of rounds. Test confirmed I guess. I think if he decides to get out, he could get a new job as a spokesman for the company :D

Marines don't say ooah or Hooah. In fact, they are libel to skull someone in their ranks that utters that Army crap. Its YUT! or OoRah, and that is it. Navy says Hoo Yah. There is no mixing of ink either. Army says HooAh. Air Force says "FORE!" :laugh:

It was close enough, she is female after-all :laugh: And she probably knew his name wasn't actually OoRah, just something like it.

Oh and navy says "aye, aye" :D The only time I have ever heard a sailor utter ""Hoo Yah" is when they were mocking another branch :p

Haha so true! I have a lot of buddies in the armed forces so I try to keep the mall straight. It's a mind game in and of itself. They were impressed I knew the difference between scrambled eggs and fruit salad. :laugh:

Not true. Hoo Yah is used quite frequently as a battle cry and exclamation. Aye, aye is basically another way of saying 'WILCO'

Awesome star wars C3-PO costume. Not convincing at all but impressive none the less.
