    You know, when I was 13/14/15 years old I was pretty concerned with dumb questions like these. I think you'd find if you were to ever get into a so called 'elite' unit that these questions wouldn't really mean anything to you anymore.

    ...Because your focus suddenly becomes getting up to speed with your unit... Trust me, not that long ago I was focused on these same kinds of questions, 'who's the most badass?' but now I'm trying to become able at what it is my unit does. There are many SOF units capable of DA, but Ranger's are the Army's premier raid force. It's a hard mindset to describe, I know I didn't used to have it. Just stop concerning over who is the best, because it all depends on the task at hand.

    You know, when i was 13/14/15 years old I would also give people **** for asking questions they genuinely didnt know the answer to. I think you'd find if you didnt ask questions, you wouldnt find answers, whether you think they are meaningless or not is irrelevent to me.

    Hey man, I think you missed his point. There are questions that are relevant such as those that pertain to someone interested in joining or MAYBE even a unit enthusiast. Then there are questions that are borderline immature and completely without an answer such as unit **** measuring, especially by those who have no first hand knowledge but throw in their baseless speculations anyway. Take a hint from those who have btdt, do they go around ranking different sof units? Just remember that no matter what you think you may know, unless you have first hand experience, you don't know. Don't take this as a slam, just a little heads up...

    One of those guys appears to be wearing BDUs and not jungle cammies...didn't realize Battalion was using M-14s in 81 as well.

    This really doesn't apply to the thread all too much, but I got a chance to handle (but not shoot) the civilian version of the SCAR-L today. My impressions were that 1: the ergonomics are great...no effort wasted to make it look good, just functionality. 2: handling a weapon that is fully ambidextrous (I'm lefty) was downright heavenly. I could do everything I'd need without moving my firing hand a bit, it was great. The stock is also really nice, adjustments are in much smaller increments than the M4. it was right out of the box, and therefore a bit stiff in the bolt/other moving pieces, but it just feels like its ready to shoot.

    I was wondering, how common is it for foreign allies to come over to American and qualify for Rangers? I have heard of it for Special Forces (Naval Diving Unit guy going for a Green Beret course), but never for Rangers. Can anyone help me clarify? Thx.
