LOL, opposite problem on the other side of the wall. Coworker of mine grew up in East Germany and served his mandatory army stint. He and his buds would head off to the range but only went for an excuse to stop and have a few smokes. They had a problem getting rid of ammo, not replenishing.We had the "we know which ammo is yours so dont think you can replace it" lie told to us in attempt to curb soldiers from shooting at things while they weren't being well supervised. Some guys did run off and make impromptu ranges in the woods, etc. We knew that the ammo wasnt serialized or marked, it was obvious. But we didn't tell them we knew and didn't talk about it so it sorta was just a thing. The guys who shot off ammo would just replenish it at the next legit range and or take ammo off a legit range and use that to fill mags back up.
Rumor mill is Monday. Let's watch and see if Faker changes his tune on Sunday.What is the rumor mill saying for a lockdown start date?
Officially, as told to the soldiers? "We can't be seen as provoking the Eastern Bloc and starting WWIII."You're not the 1st person to say that. Why the f*** was that a thing?
That’s why - theoretically speaking, of course - you save the alibis from the range. Round count is ever short, you in theory just found them.The last time the mass national guard carried loaded fire arms was the Springfield tornado and that was a long time ago. Not rifles either just the military police were issued loaded mags for the m9 for night patrols for looting. I was in the mass army guard for a very long time and retired last year.....I know a "few things" lol. Like how a very young and naive company commander lost his career over how that government issue 9mm was turned in. I was full time national guard and worked in the uspfo office back then. When his unit turned in their ammo after the activation was over the ammo supply point inventories every round by headstamp. His supply sergeant knew there were 5 rounds short .....went home......and grabbed 5 rounds of civilian made federal brand "9mm Luger" headstamped rounds and put those in the pile to be turned in. Supply sergeant told him "it'll be fine sir".
Bye bye army careers.
Anyway back on subject. I was activated probably 8 times over my career with the army national guard for natural disasters and never had a rifle on me for any of them. Never heard of any activations other than the Springfield tornado where they were ever issued.
Far as I heard, none of it is title 10 money so far.State active duty for disaster relief doesn't pay shit. It's a totally different system if pay......they don't get full pay and benefits for state active duty. Last time I had access to the system an e4 or below was $110 a day for state duty and a day is 24 hours.
That will only work when your issued ammo for the range. When a unit is issued force protection ammo for disaster relief every single round needs to be turned in and inventoried by headstamp........any missing rounds need an incident report to explain why it was FIRED or a flipl initiated for why it was lost.That’s why - theoretically speaking, of course - you save the alibis from the range.

If you want to shoot, bring your own ammo. Then replace it with the ammo you were issued.That will only work when your issued ammo for the range.

Tell that to the ASP when you turn in spent casings lol
Well, that answers that .If you want to shoot, bring your own ammo. Then replace it with the ammo you were issued.
