Crew-Served Machine Guns -- 5.56-mm and 7.62-mm

Today's reading is FM 3-22.68, available online at the link, or in convenient CD format here.

The FM contains a separate chapter each for the M249, M60, and M240B. Chapter 1-3 covers operation from general disassembly to clearing procedures. Includes information on the M122 and M122A1 Tripod. Chapter 4 is on machine gun marksmanship training covering topics from: firing positions, night fire, engagement of moving targets, application of fire, changing the barrel, crew drill, transition fire, and other topics. Chapter 5 covers combat techniques of fire and Chapter 6 is on train the trainer.

I prefer the ring-bound hardcopy available at Commando Military Supply in Columbus, GA, which also has other educational materials.

Audentes fortuna juvat.

Perhaps Saurez can do a class on familiarization with THESE.

And some nice videos would be handy as well. Anyone know of any?

As a Jewess in the US, I want to point out that America wasn't won with a registered gun! And criminals are stopped by FIREARMS, not by sweet-talk. That is why all REAL Americans put our 2nd Amendment FIRST!!
