Any day at the range is a good day. A day at the range with Marines and FMF Corpsman is a fantastic day.
Detachment 336 spent Saturday morning at the West Coast Armory range in Bellevue, WA (http://www.westcoastarmory.com/the-range.html) with a pistol qualification.The weather was nice, the range was nicer, and the West Coast Armory staff were superb.
<Shout out to Tyler for giving a great safety brief.>
Although we were ranked by score, the more important score was getting together as a Brotherhood to spend time together and meeting new people. Of course, it's always cool to see a wide range of firearms used by a wide range of members for the qualification, from 1911s to Glocks to 38 Specials. Not that a Glock is better than any other firearm...but a Glock did take 1st Place today :)
If you missed the qualification shoot this time, be sure to make it the next time. It's about the comradery. It's about getting together with fellow Marines, FMF Corpsmen, and FMF Chaplains. It's about being together for each other to support Marines.
Be sure to make time to check out West Coast Armory if you haven't yet. The facilities are really nice and they have a great selection of firearms. As far as the West Coast Armory staff….they are a bunch of Devil Dogs. Ooh Rah!
