    you won't be shooting any live ammo, but I can assure you that firing blanks out of a full-auto M249 is quite satisfying.

    They will set you up on a machine gun with blanks and push your face close to it as you let it rip: "Can you feel it!" SLS is a good litmus test-either you like getting up early to run and march and yell cadences or you don't. You will also meet some of the toughest people you will ever spend time with-the instructors, Rangers, etc..
