Yesterday I joined a program they had for Americans to train with the israeli special forces for a day.We went to an army base in an undisclosed location. It was lots of fun (especially if your idea of fun is to walk through the hot desert carrying a stretcher loaded with sand bags)We werent allowed to take pictures of certain things because of a lot of it being classified. I took pics but I'm not stupid enough to post them online. I wouldn't want to put the soldiers who protect us lives in danger. The special forces work real hard and it was great to experience their day. We got trained in shooting all different types of guns. We also sweated so much we almost passed out(although they did make us drink lots of water.)It was awesome to jog around wearing a bullet proof vest and lots of other heavy equipment (and even awesomer to do pushups in them)Heres a pic of an armored truck the army uses.
Heres the inside.
One of the guns we shot was the negev. Its a big machine gun on a tripod, that shoots lots of bullets very fast and powerfully. (I dont remember exactly how many but lets just say it would hurt a little if you were accidentally standing on the wrong side)Heres a pic of me shooting it. (when I had it on semi automatic I was dead accurate at 100 meters. When I had it on full auto I wasnt as good, cuz its got much more recoil then the m-16.)
Heres a pic of the m-4 with grenade launcher.(the clips were in my vest)
This is a view through a scope. (We didnt get scopes to shoot at the range)
