Ever notice that Drill Teams almost always use the good old Garand (very occasionally, the Springfield) ... can you imagine doing that with the new MBR?

Not to be petty, but years ago when I was in school, Stockholm was in Sweden. In fact, back then it was the capital of Sweden (probably still is). LOL

Thanks Pat!! I was once one of them back in the early 60's. Loved it and had fun doing it to. Only thing for us then we had silver pots instead of the white hat. Looked more professional. We were in our Blues also. (Rich.inAz.orinnameonly)

If they could shoot into 2 MOA with iron sights, I would be surprised.

But their "parade twirling" sure is good. Better than I will ever be since I only practice that when at Cabelas.

I will say that the Navy Drill team was good, however the Marine Silent Drill platoon made them look like rank amateurs, and I am a retired Navy Man myself. Given the choice of duty at a Naval activity or going back to the Marines I would choose the Marines with no hesitation. I was a Corpsman with Second Recon Battalion at Camp Lejeune in the early 60's and enjoyed every minute of it. We even have an association of former Recon Marines and Corpsmen, reunion every year.

Does any one remember the Shooter from I believe Alabama that would spin his gun around after each shot. I was in Vandalia when off to my left on a adjacent trap this movement caught my eye.
