    Maybe not typical for everyone, but this sure beats a day in the office.


    Tim opens the range. I am drinking coffee and watching him work.

    With enough effort, you can powerslide a GMV pretty nicely.

    Tim and Josh conducting crucial weapons testing.

    And here they come...

    Off the objective...

    Poor Rod was sweating buckets in that jacket. Such is the life of the target.

    Tim and Yours Truly keeping a diligent eye on things. Out of coffee by this point.

    So, uh, stupid question but aren't you a pilot? The training that you're in looks a lot like something for the infantry/special forces

    I'm sure if you do some good thinking you can answer that question for yourself, young Skywalker!

    Hey Scout, is that what the Cavalry Scout club does at USMA? DS is in that club and he seems to love it. He told me he was driving a Hummer yesterday too, I'm pretty sure he wasn't able to do the same maneuver you fellas did with your test subject.

    No idea. I was never a part of any such organizations. And no, I doubt they are powersliding their trucks. But theirs are light-skinned conventional versions, which with a little skill can be made to kick the *** end all the way around.
