Re: The 12 Hour Clock

Isn´t that WHY you use 0000 or 2400? because 0000 makes it clear that you mean 00:00 at the beginning of April 1st, (the switch between May 31 and April 1st) and 2400 would mean the end or 24:00 of April first, before April 2nd begins. At least that´s how i understand it, but then again: Im not say...

Re: Training Rifle ideas?

Target practice is target practice. Shooting one rifile wont mess your targetting with another one. May take a little bit to get it perfect with another rifile but the basics and fundamentals are going to be all the same.

Re: Military uniforms, Looking for a reliable source

If you are near a military base do a search for "basenamehere"yardsales.com. For instance, Cherry point would be http://www.cherrypointyardsales.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Pretty much every base has a website set up like this. It is like craigs list but is for that local area.

What bags are you using? Are they two seperate ones that happen to connect or are they designed that way?
