How many Combat Arms here?

Enough with the Cop stuff, how many CATM are in the house?

I am intermitently assigned to my CATM section. I was suppose to attend CATM school back in 99 but when I resigned my AGR position for a federal LE job "politics" removed me from it. I was staying in the unit in a traditonal capacity but thats the way it goes. I went through the federal LE academy firearms instructors couse for my agency and bring a different way to my SFS squadron. Don't know if that counts for you or not

Sad to say but I think the number of gun guys are down. I remember 20 years ago CATM was "the field" to work in. Teach in the AM and shoot your weapon in the PM. There were alot of private trigger jobs done on the clock in those days!

I used to do the BMT errrs But not anymore. Your son-in-law should have been issued a bluegun already. The bluegun is a blue functioning M-16 with every part except the hammer. We dont need any Full metal jacket episodes at Lackland. He should qualify on his 4th week though. Ah good job on the cop part. I just hope he's not open general, because he will then have no choice but to become a cop!!

Avionics friend over my shoulder is now sobbing.


If he as a Green Fatigue guy (retired CATM) with glasses and a beard teaching him shooting... he's my old boss at my gunshop. He went back to CATM a week before I left for basic, and I ran into him during Warrior Week and then during Area 2 for SF tech school.

Name is Greg, drives a goldish colored Nissan Titan with a matching colored shell.

Can't remember last name (even when I worked with/under him he was just Greg). Fellowes? Sounds right.

He asked me which field didn't deploy as much. We (my daughter and me) tried to get him to go into space and missle maint. I remember them from my Malmstrom days they had a good gig and were in MT, ND or WY. They don't deploy overseas and I would like somewhere to stay with good hunting. The downside there isn't really a big demand for them on the civilian side unless you work for one of the contractors at Vandenberg AFB etc. So he did something decent in my mind. He wont be a knucle draging cop like me, one step above doing the Geico commercials.
