Sorry, Ive got to call bullshit on that one. I've never heard of leave during basic, and know for a fact that weapons are strictly verbooten. Where did you go to AIT?, I know the school used to be at Ft. McClellan, but they moved it in 1994-1996. I can not see a new recruit being able to hide 2 pistols, and not be ratted out by some Blue Falcon trying to score quicky cheese points. Life is to regimented durin AIT, and Basic to even try to pull this one off.

I didn't SAY that I had em in my LOCKER, stupid. I hid them under the barracks, both at Ft Leonard Wood. MO, and Ft Gordon, GA. Basic from September 15, 1971 to November 15. Then AIT from mid November, to about 1 feb,with 1-2weeks off for Xmas (I forget) then they gave us 30 days leave before having us report to Oakland, CA to be shipped overseas. Just because YOU don't know something doesn't make it impossible, dumbass. It just makes you IGNORANT, that's all. In 1971, the Army was still using the Meningitus-infested old wooden barracks, left over from WW2. IRRC., I was in Delta 1-2, for Basic, and Charlie 12-4 for AIT.

Sorry to disbeive you, but I just can not see this happeng for the following reasons
1. You do not strike me as bieng able to keep such a thing secret.
2. You would just have to brag to someone.
3. Time off in AIT is hard to come by, and I can't see having the privacy to shoot on base.
4. The noise of a pistol primer being popped in the wood line not at a range would draw all sorts of unwanted attention.
5. The old style splinter barracks are full of rumor mills, and You couldn't even hide a skin mag when I went to AIT let alone 2 pistols.
6. I don't think You would have the cajones to do something like this, nor would you try to shoot them after class and you damn sure couldn't use the in class.

I shot the .22 unit on the weekend, and the idea was not to shoot them during training, dumbass, it was to not get sent to Nam without them. Just because YOU are too gutless to try something doesn't mean everyone is as big a pussy as you are. You wouldn't have dared to write "how to' silencer books, while in the Hole at a federal prison, either. :) You wouldn't dare post about guns while on Federal parole, either. Lots of things I think nothing of would scare pissants like you half to death.

I wouldn't have been in federal prison, and that is by my own choices. You made some stupid choices, and it's starting to sound like there is a pattern extending all the way back to your late teens of thinking yourself above the rules.

It's just the standard, Mark I, Mod 0 criminal attitude. They they wonder why they get taken down, time and again, after all, they're smarter than everyone else, right?

Right?

:rolleyes:

This a fairy tale. First off, WHY would you do it? Before anyone was shipped to Viet Nam they got leave. What would prevent you from picking up your popguns before you left? Hid them under the barracks and shot them on weekends? Like no one is going to see you crawling in and out, or not hear gunfire and investigate it on a Military Post. In basic training you are so closely observed it's hard to get privacy going to the bathroom, let alone wandering around in the woods unobserved. In AIT you have some more freedom but I gurantee you someone would observe your antics and give you up. And, biggest question, why would you need to bring gun's to Viet Nam? If you hadn't noticed there were literally millions of them in the country. I know a lot of guy's wanted their own pistol, but you learned way before hand that many types of pistols were to be had in-country, and usually cheaper than they were in the States. Smuggling a Colt.45 into Viet Nam would be about as smart as smuggling sand to Arizona. The country was awash with .45's. Why do you make up these lies? Did you forget many people on this Forum have Military backgrounds?

During my military tours, the company commanders were very careful to make everyone know, that any personal firearms, HAD, to be in the company armoury.

No exceptions!

I wouldn't know this Andy if he walked in the door with a bright neon sight on his forehead-but why all this B.S. about AIT- when I went through Boot in Great Lakes 1958-we couldn't even keep a small pocket knife- the Master At Arms was a great big barrel chested "Lifer" and no one had the cojones to cross him-even a water pistol or a cap gun- as they say on the Sopranos- Fuggerabutit!! My granddad always told me to keep my trap shut when in unknown areas, and to avoid pissing contests with polecats. Andy, why not do what I do with my special lady- "try a little tenderness'- might put a big Texas smile on your face (she's from San Antonio) and taught me that-Sundance..

They probably do a search on the subject and then post to an interesting thread, not looking at the date.

I know I do it on a lot of forums. You're damned if you do, damned if you don't. If you start a new subject, there's always some guy "Use the search function, we've talked about this before (as if you can't talk about it again, or come up with new info)." Or you'll have "Did you look at the date? You should have started a new topic."

You have to admit, a lot of his posts will draw flak, just like they did the first time around. Probably the reason a lot of us don't dredge up these is that we lived through them the first time.

OK, so someone brings several firearms to basic training, keeps them secret and fires them?

AIT I can see, but basic?


It comes down to this, either the person is lying or stupid.

Let's see, other things he can claim: "I brought my notebook to basic training and used their phones for the Internet connection, and guys paid me so they could view porn." Or "I smuggled my girlfriend in to basic training. No one caught on because I hid her in my wall locker and duffle bag."

Oh, and don't forget, when challenged, say "Just because you don't have the guts to try it, don't say it's impossible."
