  1. Looks cool, but all I can think of looking at the picture:

    It’s probably hot as Hell there – so that young Marine will spend hours trying to scrub the paint out of his pores, and the inevitable acne that stuff causes.

    If he fired blanks through that M16 with the BFA, he will also be scrubbing carbon off the bolt and chamber for hours.
