The nomad is a h&k g36 clone. I like the 10/22 pretty well, they're a little finicky as far as what mags they like and rimfire stuff is always a little less reliable but it shoots great and is very accurate.

 Being that you mentioned it, I have a IWI x-95 tavor too, I think it's delicious, definitely one of my favorite pieces and my go to problem solver (if things ever go badly society wise or something ((obviously I'd try to hug it out first)). It's got a vortex 3 power optic, a magpul rgv foregrip, a magpul sling, and a streamlight tlr-4 laser/led light combo. For me it's just the right weapon system. It's way more accurate than it needs to be and tge short overall length makes it a good choice for cqb. mine's black not fde.

It was about half a mile from a very main road.  You could see it sitting there like this for about a month, until they completed the investigation and salvage.  The flight deck became a simulator at some other AFB, the engines went into refurbished inventory, and the airframe got scrapped.

daaaaaang!

I used to work on the C-17 RAMS team, we'd go out and fix broke jets of varying degrees.  Before I joined the team they had a C-17 land gear up in Afghanistan.  She's back in service now.  One of the guys paid off his house with the overtime he made from that trip (Same guy went back out when we had one get hit by a RPG.  The explosives separated from the motor.  The motor broke through the skin and embedded itself in the electrical power center right behind the pilot.)

The above went off the runway (in afghanistan), the BELOW was the belly grinder

I need to learn to identify the bigger military cargo aircraft, I live in the slight path of Andrews so we get a lot of low flyers.  (at least AF1 is easy to identify...)

Ive been having delusions of grandeur regarding the build of a hemtt military vehicle with a camper on the back lately. I'll likely never go through with it but if I did it would not win the dakar rally at all.

The upside is that they can be had unbelievably cheap (I saw one go for $3500!). The downside is that they get 2mpg, have 105' turning radius, and the 52" tires weigh like 700lbs ea.

He's lucky not to have a parking ticket for the chunk of LEM he left behind.

17 people aboard - some injuries, no fatalities except the skipper's career.

What happened to the Captain?  Demoted, thrown out, prevented from flying?

I don't honestly know.  I am just assuming that crashing's not much of a resumé builder.
