The pictures look a lot happier this month for some reason. It almost makes it look like a decent place to live.

Hardly any military/gun related pics, I was almost tempted to not post about it.

And I thought prison gyms on TV shows looked badass!  You can’t get much more badass than lifting spooled up barbed wire.  That Marine needs to get those pants fixed though. You can’t be too safe with that don’t ask don’t tell policy. LOL

If you’re wondering what’s with the earmuffs and blacked out goggles, it must be because their future might be bright and loud. (Muzzle flash and gunshot)
