    OCPs Arrive Oct 1st, 2018

    I agree 100% on this. That was the only thing that really bugged me about the bag. Was the fact I had to take it to get not only frank stiched on but also all the Velcro. Plus depending on what unit I was with I either got it covered by the unit, the riggers/afe did it for us, or I have to pay out of pocket for each one 😡. So here comes the OCP where if I have the tapes and rank already it’s go to go. Not now. Plus let’s make you get new patches for it even though what we have for the desert bag works just fine. That and the flag thing really annoys me. Why can’t it be the standard color flag like the Army wears in the states but on the left or if you have the IR one you can wear that? How much more money are we going to waste on this new uniform even though we’ve been wearing it for what 6 years downrange now?

    While I’m looking forward to getting to wear this. I don’t like the fact that we went the lazy way and just copied the Army with how they lay out their patches. But do like how folks can now wear the combat patches they earned with the Army on their ground deployments. What was wrong with the way we’ve been wearing the patches on the bag so far? Plus now I have to go and get Velcro sowed onto the top for the wings now.
  3. Thanks for clarifying that, I forgot it’s a month. Yeah just the E-9, don’t want them to feel bigger than they already think they are.
  4. No. Part of it might be. But it’s only tax free up to what an E-9 makes. Anything over that is taxed.

    I know there have been some issues with the P320 with the firing without pulling the trigger. But I’m not a sig owner, just what I’ve seen on the inter webs.

    Gun Talk

    I’ll chime in on this discussion since I have both the xds in .45 and 9mm. I’ll say this I’m not a big fan of the xde due to all the things M2 mentioned. After shooting both of my xds’s I like hem both. While the 9 is newer so it has the updated/fixed trigger on it it’s fine. The recoil is just fine for a small framed gun. The wife has no problem shooting it. I don’t have an issue putting multiple mags down range with the .45. Ive got the pinky extension on it finally and will be getting the 6 round mags to replace that soon. The recoil is a little snappy but it is controllable for sure. Now my wife didn’t like shooting the .45 but would if she had too. I’d look into either on of those for your wife for sure, esp if you can catch them on sale like I did with the 9mm.

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    That’s true, the standard J school program. 6 day weeks in the sim which should be at max capacity with the sims they have.

    Check the vmpf for your line number. I know there’s a spot for it on there. Now I’m not at work right now to check but that’s where I’d look if you can’t see the list.

    It could, but I don’t remember. It would be pulled if they had a continuation board anyway. But Duck won’t know till he gets back to work what his letter states.

    If they didn’t you just hit the lotto with the sep pay as well.
  11. This exact thing. They will give you a corrected W2 and you’d have to refile.

    Duck, thanks for keeping us informed with some of this info. At least someone is trying to get the word out. Would like to know what the “MAJCOM Commander Action” was.
