A couple more from weapons training.

A few days ago, we went out to fire the M-203 grenade launcher.  We used practice rounds, which means that they fire off just like regular rounds, but only leave chalk markers on the targets.  It was the most fun I’ve ever had at any Army weapons range.  Some people were quite good.  I managed to get a few rounds through a window at 100 meters, and even hit a target 200 meters away.  Here are the pics.

Having too much fun!  (note my hand is in the wrong place — right in the breach of the grenande launcher!)

Thanks to MSG Dickerson for emailing these photos to me!  She’s an army photographer….

  1. Hmmmm, the sight of you with a grenade launcher is supposed to make me feel safe? Remember to point the pointy end at the bad guy! Watch out Al Qaeda in Iraq, Capt. Nomi is coming for you!

    Seeing you in your ACU brings it home that a close friend is going “over there”. I’m glad you’ll be safely confined to the base. I’ve read everything on your blog up to now and can’t wait to hear about your next adventures.

    Stay safe!

  2. Hi Brian:

    Cool blog!! I only hope that you have the resources and willingness to keep it current while you are in Iraq. In a small way, I’m jealous. During my time in the service (80’s) it was fairly quiet, especially in the Navy. On the other hand, leaving everything and everyone behind for one year has got to be brutal. Your wife is strong to get through this. You are doing great work in service to your country. Be safe.

    Very respectfully

    Joe Herbert
