About what the others said. I was a company level "armorer." I got the job mostly by default because nobody else wanted to have to stand there and check in 150+ guns after each time we went to the field. Our main job was keeping the rust off and driving broken guns over to the main armory and sitting around while someone there fixed them.

They eventually sent me to a short school where I learned things like how to disassemble a 1911. (This was back in the 80's just before the M9 came online.)

What the troops didn't really "get" was that the basement was cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and the First Sgt tended to forget about us down there so we never got any other duty. I LOVED that job. LOL

I can't do much else these days but I can still strip a 1911 or AR completely to base parts, almost by feel. LOL
