Big strange having a rifle in the sleeping bag then you remember its loaded, then you think have i made ready, is the safety on, best hope it is if you have made ready the muzzle was inches from my ears and eyes. Try to get some sleep lying in a pit in the ground (with lots of stones) still wearing boots. Then before you hrrave any real sleep its your turn on stag. Drag your self out your sleeping bag, jacket on webbing on, helmet on, grab your weapon, hobble over the sentry shell scrape, freeze your nipples of and have very strange lucid dreams as you fight to keep your eyes open.
*All my spelling and grammar mistakes are on purpose.
Basically they alter the sights slightly to fig you. At range of 200 meters were ever the foresight blade is that is exactly were the bullet will hit. Atm my rifle is set up for whover last had it. So all my rounds land low left.of my aim. My groupings are decent though, average of 70mm from the 2 rounds furthest apart on the target.
Thought I had cancled that other post hence the other that's virtually the same :stupid:
No problem mate, its the sleep deprivation. If you go too long without sleep you eventually start to hallucinate. I was driving for four hours once after working a 12 hour night shift, on the motorway I started 'seeing' things. Like a tree walking across the road lol.
I pulled over into a truck stop that was full of lorries and fell asleep. I was cold through to the bone but when i woke up, the entire car park was empty even the lorries that were next to me - and I hadn't heard a thing.
I swear if you get tired enough, you'll sleep standing up.
Everything went back to normal but so glad this weeks over. Drill test Monday and get to go home Thursday and will be half way through training.
