    AFPAK Hands- Opportunity Beckons

    You do know that Chang was trolling the board when he wrote this. Right?

    Seven Day Option

    I had to go back to my already approved separation and amend the separation date. I provided the supporting documentation for PC as additional attachments. All said, it was about 4 months from submission to tentative approval, and another month after that to make everything official. One thing to keep in your crosscheck as well is that the routing for coordination still goes through your previous management chain, so that can complicate the process.

    Seven Day Option

    Weird. I managed to Palace Chase successfully after 7-day opting.

    Drone Pilots: We Don’t Get No Respect

    Just goes to show that maybe droids aren't nearly as intersting or rewarding as those above the line people like to say they are as they're force-feeding the Kool Aid. If they were, you'd have those people with better than a single digit 90-day lookback. Of course, exceptions apply.

    Escaping RPAs

    I think there are enough qualifying statements in there that make it a 50/50 proposition at best. Just my gut feeling. Big Blue has a way of moving the finish line. I think the big change will be the crew/CAP ratio, as the AF has been using surge numbers to man its squadrons, which has precipitated the continuous burnout in the community. Eventually, quality of life will have to improve, and one tangible way of doing that is to up that ratio so people aren't having to sit in the box for 8 hours, 6 days a week while on mids. Also, I don't think that the AF has a clue how many of the 18X'ers will actually bail at the end of their commitment starting in late 2017 to early 2018. From the rumors I hear, almost all of them are as good as gone. That sets the stage for more pain down the road.

    Drone Pilots: We Don’t Get No Respect

    Sweet. More locations to choose from when I (still) get out at the end of my commitment and get a contractor gig.

    Drone Pilots: We Don’t Get No Respect

    That makes too much sense. Unfortunately, the AF cannot come to grips with the fact that it's quite possible to "fly" these things and be proficient, even if it's an additional duty.

    Nice Kool Aid enema. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. I can't believe they are still trying to sell this as a good deal.

    KC-10 Breitling Order

    There is a guy at LRF who is trying to set up a J-model buy.

    Another brand to consider is Bremont. I don't know the exact pricing, but I have heard that they have some pretty decent deals for military orders. http://www.bremont.com

    I rotate between the IWC Pilot chronograph on kevlar and a Citizen Eco-Drive Calibre 8100.

    Gun Talk

    Anybody have any experience with this? I'm thinking about picking up one of these to swap out on my Noveske. Of course, there's the whole tax stamp thing as well, but this looks kind of cool. Noveske 10" .300 Blackout
