biathlon

It’s lit in Moscow:

1:54 – if you want to skip to the flip.

Looks like good times.  That 2nd tank sure hit the water fast;  that was awesome!

Two types or races… and individual race and a relay race.  Seeing tanks shoot at targets all day, such as other tanks and a helicopter would be great. More info on the Tank Biathlon on this Russian military website.

Tank-Album-CoverThe couple tanks I’ve been inside were very uncomfortable / bare bones looking.  When I saw that roll happen I was thinking “I sure hope they are strapped in well”.  Smashing your head against the steel tank interior wouldn’t be a good time.

Remember Tank?  That was some of that – light some candles, make your girl a nice meal, and give her a massage to show how much you appreciate her type shit.  Oh well I’ll just listen to Tank for the rest of the night by myself now, and eat cheetos to ease the pain. #ForeverAlone

Standard:

0:04 – Is the esteemed announcer talking into some type of large Russian sausage?  He seems quite sauced.

0:22 – haha that careful ice running to prone

0:51 – “Shoot somewhere fast”

Dude lights up the targets and it’s a wrap!

Russian-VS-SnowmanAll in all the four rules were respected, and they had fun.  Although I don’t condone drinking and shooting, Jeff Cooper obviously didn’t want to be a buzz kill, and toss a 5th “Always be sober” rule in the mix.

Note to self: Participate in Russian biathlon. In hindsight that would have made some good 1st week of Engineering shenanigans. I hear there are even girls now in Engineering! Epic.

About a week ago I wished for A More Interesting Biathlon… Well my wish was granted:

Best Line:

Not only is he using the wrong car, he is using the wrong gun. 22 is alright when you’re 9, but when you’re in a hurry you need one of these. A Heckler & Koch MP5 Machine Pistol.

I’d consider watching the Olympics if they spiced up the events like this:

At the very least I’d like to see higher caliber guns used, longer distances, and even a “production” rifles event, where modified rifles are not allowed.

Watching someone in spandex shoot 50m with an alien looking .22LR does not interest me even the slightest.
