Is the FN SCAR built to fit this particular use?

IIRC, there are hidden lyrics in I Left My Wallet In El Segundo (but only on the 12" vinyl single) that pertain to Mattel's Firearms Division.

I rigged my cake mixer to my turntable to listen to some TCQ in reverse but the only thing that happened is this weird spinny thing floating above my amplifier. Pretty sure I tore a hole in the space/ time continuum. I tried throwing a tennis ball into it to see what would happen...........don't think the dog is coming back. I'll be at a hotel if anyone needs me.

No, but you do get to keep the tactical baby blue bathrobe and slippers they issued to you when you were first admitted in theater.

Only if you were involved in hostile action.
In which case you are entitled to the purple heart embroidered on your bathrobe if wounded.

You can get a waiver for it, but it has to come all the way from MARFORCOM, otherwise it's 90 days service planetside during a time of war, or service planetside less than 90 days resulting in your wounding by enemy forces. I have the regs for it around here somewhere...

For the last time! THERE WERE NO M16S BUILT BY MATTEL !! They were built by Ertl.:D

Occasionally one can find an elusive "Tonka" marked lower, though these were only issued to SF troops on Titan.

Get an 80% lower, take it in to an engraving shop to do the markings and logo for you.

There's one here in LA that I think would do it, I believe if you sent your lower in before finishing it, it can be sent around without issue through the mail...

Think a guy that got a BCD for bangin martian locals would count as 'enemy forces?' He was driving the golf cart that took me out. I mean, we all knew he was really into martians in an unhealthy way, and kind of a sympathizer. Never could figure out how he had sex with them, though...

Martian sex fetish comes up in convo, and suddenly Hicks is awake? Why am I not surprised?

Hicks was the only real grunt in that outfit. Napping through the ride and unauthorized personal weapons are a dead giveaway :wink:

Hmm... additional research indicates that the Tonka marked lowers were on .308 rifles in what latter became known as "DPMS pattern".

the OP made no mention of the psychic soldiers developed for the First Earth Battallion, nor how Eugene was their secret killing word.
