    And the old saying, keep your ass down and your head lower. My cousin didn't and got a purple heart and two additional stars on it. That bony marine butt was just to fine a target.

    I plan on going to jump school and sniper school, but both of those are up to my unit. I also think I'm going to try and get secondary MOS training as a mechanic so I can help work on our strikers when they get damaged.

    If you need some good places to shoot around Fort lewis, hit me up. The skeet range on post is the nicest skeet facility in the whole northwest, I go there every Thursday around lunch. It's open W,Thur, Sat/Sun from 1000-1500, sporting clays is 1st saturday every month.

    Range 15 is the rifle/pistol range, open on weekends only, same hours.

    Don't forget to stop by Evergreen Theatre on 2nd Division drive (opposite end of Gray airfield from the PX/main post area by Ranger Bn) and sit through an SF briefing! Every Wednesday at noon there's a brief, it's worth an hour of your time when you can break away from work for a bit.

    I'm still getting used to where everything is right now. And I don't have any of my rifles so I can't go to the range just yet, thank you though. And I'll be busy for the next week or so getting processed in and everything. Hopefully they'll have it all finishes in time for me to take Christmas Exodus and go home for a while.

    Don't forget, the PX now sells guns and ammo!

    They have a decent selection but can order just about anything. Also make sure to check out the NAC (northwest adventure center) over on North Fort side, there's tons of cool stuff to do and rent over there. RV's, SCUBA gear/classes, snowshoes, cabins to rent on American lake, etc.... but they have powder, primers, guns (not many but will order anything you want for about 20% cheaper than anyplace else!) and other shooting stuff.

    Good place to get your hunting/fishing licenses also
