    New member here from Missouri.
    Bought my JHP .45 to practice shooting with a large caliber so when I get into the Military shooting the 9m will be a cake walk! I'm currently trying to enlist into the Marines DEP... I'm 21, and my medical history is complicating my enlistment, but time will tell.

    This site is full of so many helpful people and links it's gonna take me awhile to get through them all. Just bought the gun last week and already fired 150 rounds, it's so much fun to shoot! My aim is terrible but I'll be practicing :)

    See ya round the site !

    You won't be shooting a pistol in the corps unless you're a sandbag, pogue, or spec ops.

    Why do you wanna know? :p


    I believe you can request one as a carry gun/be issued one once you achieve the rank of SGT or something like that. And there are pistol shooting qualifications/tests that you can try that use the m9 as well. "marines combat pistol program"

    Nope. Ask me how I know.

    Yeah, your recruiter blew a boat load of smoke up your 6. And another thing. I've seen buck shot group better at 200 yards compared to your pistol targets from the other thread.

    I've seen an avatar better than yours a thousand times over whats your point?
    Thanks for telling me they were bad, I didn't know that after I said myself they were bad.

    And I hope not about my recruiter :(
    What are all the videos on youtube about the class I mentioned then? Are those only for the few MOSs listed that carry the m9 ?

    You'll never survive boot camp. To bad the DI's can't take the punks to the gear locker for motivational periods of instruction anymore.

    4 years in the military...I touched a pistol once.

    At a store.:cool:

    In my unit there were 6 or 7 pistols. The officers got them. Of course, we were Army, not Marines.

    Hey...I wonder...anyone here ever been a Marine?

    :rofl:

    You guys think you know everything. Surely a 21 year old kid with zero practical life experience knows more than you. Hell, in today's PC rich world, if he asked to be issued a pink double ended rubber phallus, they would probably issue him one so a pistol is a non issue.
    I suppose you think he should worry more about aiming than loading his mags fast too.

    This guy is gonna be a 5 star General in no time.

    This first post reminds me of the Titanic disaster...

    But I must admit it was more entertaining than my intro :D

    You know nothing about me. Pretty childish of you to assume something like that based on a a few text lines. But, you can believe whatever you want doesn't bother me none buddy :)
