  1. I've never been a fan of glocks so i can't comment on them, used to carry a Sig 229 forr winter attire and loved the thing. Not a good CC pistol for summer clothing though.

    And just recently started gettig into Springfield XD's. Probably one of the best series of handguns for multipurpose use, Imho.

  2. Google+ is great if you have a small inner circle of friends that are wlays hangin' out.

    I have myself and 4 others in our circle. We always hang out and do shit together, so instead of coordinating via phone and text, we just post it in the huddle, make decisions in real time instead of the hold on let me call John first... shit that goes on.

    You can post pics and all sorts of stuff.

    Leonidas - certifiable badass

    Yeah, for a gay man leading an all gay army, he did alright. ;)

    They didn't exactly cover that aspect of their life in the movie, 300.

    Movies based on comic books are not exactly known for their historical accuracy ;)

    Any gayness, Helot deaths and enslavment is cancelled out by Leonidas' badassness....making him not gay.

    I live in Maryland, we basically don't allow it either. :(

    Many are in the same boat.

    While the great state of Alabama is a "May Issue" state, in practice they are a "Shall Issue" state. Most people should have no problem getting a CCW in Alabama.

    Yes, applicable to homosexual people only. What else would it be applicable to?

    Ummmm....would it be unreasonable to think that it should apply to everybody?

    How so? Are you saying it did apply to everyone? Cause it did not and it was not intended to apply to straights folks, only to homosexuals.

    "I hope my BNCO or OIC does not see my wife and ask how many kids I have, he may know I'm straight!"

    Yeah, us straight folks really had it tough in the military. [/sarcasm]

    At least I could hang up pics of my significant other and leave my personal letters out without fear of some nosey ass d-bag reading my shit and reporting me up the chain.

    I have seen several people kicked out with OTH's and General discharges (depending on if Adultery or other infractions were involved, along with service member history).

    Exactly - depending on adultery and other infractions. But no OTH's and GC's for grab-ass barracks BS, like it would be in the case of a gay dude.


    It sounds like you may have worked for the Army. They have different standards....B|

    Eight years in the Marines. And yes, the Army does have a different set of standards:P [/:P]

    I agree with much of what you've said about tension in the mix, not being able to enforce barracks standards with same sex rooming (which is "not" about sex (gender), but about sex (the act) which happens to mainly be between a guy and a girl, etc... These are all valid points. But to do nothing about it and not address the issue and denying people a chance to openly serve their country does not make sense.

    The military teaches character, loyalty, honor, and all the jazz. But at the same time they have/had a policy in place that requires people to actively hide who they are - someone's sexual preference is much of who they are.

    If "being gay" becomes an issue for someone one and affects their job performance either in the rear or on the battlefield, then get them for not working to standard or some crap (gay or straight). Punish them for the offenses, not for being gay.

    You obviously haven't spent any time in the military. Straight service members have been kicked out for this.

    I've never known a straight service member get kicked out for a single offense of being in the room of someone of the opposite sex - even if they're doin' it. However, I have seen demotions, NJPs, restriction, office hours, adverse fitreps (for E5's and above) and even people kicked out of a country for dickin' around. But never an OTH, DH, or GHC for a single offense - unless the the service member is gay, then its an unfavorable DD214 for the same single offense.

  8. The "tools" are not used to remedy the drama, but to discharge gay service members for being gay. Discharge straight service members for the same drama and you might have a point, only problem is you can't kick somone out for the petty drama shit that you brought up. Double standard indeed.
