The Marines are now making a a real effort to familiarize line troops with non-standard weapons that might be encountered in the field. I feel strongly that this is good advice for everyone. The next time you go shooting with someone who runs a platform you're not familiar with, ask him to let you swap for some trigger time.Even better, after you're finished shooting, ask them show you how to field-strip it, clean it, and do an operational check.Offer to really clean it FOR THEM if they'll simply show you how to break it down.Who knows ? You BOTH might learn something useful.
