Being a Marine rifleman i can tell you that its nothing like the weekend rambo classes one can take. You show up and its game on for 12 weeks then on to more training as a rifleman then its on to your MOS. EVERY Marine is a rifleman. Some of us 0311 were by MOS a rifleman in the infantry. You just cant get any of that training in some weekend classes. Its a hell of a lot more than just being able to fire a weapon
Great post and thank you for your service.

Being a civilian, none of my weekend 3Gun, IDPA, etc courses will ever paramount to actual Military training and deployment. Rules are different in the civilian world vs LEO/Military. Nothing wrong with those civilian courses, but they just do not replicate a true hostile environment when bad guys may be shooting back with live ammunition.
