|Would you take advice from this guy? Maybe on weight lifting but not on optic set-up.|
The idea that every cop/soldier/marine/etc has the capability to comment on firearms with any amount of authority is a myth. Keep in mind; there are always exceptions to the rule. There are many firearms experts in our Armed Forces/Law Enforcement but being apart of the organization doesn't make you an expert by default.
Haus of Guns' article is refreshing and much needed. The 'Military Myth' is a very relevant issue. Far too many take for gospel what should be taken with a grain of salt from people who have little to no bearing on the subject or firearms. Ebbs sums it up well:
"IF YOU DEMAND EXCELLENCE EVENTUALLY THE IDIOTS AND SELF RIGHTEOUS PRIMA DONNA’S WILL SORT THEMSELVES OUT. CIVILIAN, MILITARY OR EX-MILITARY INCLUDED."Ebbs' article is not meant to be demeaning or disrespectful. It has been offered to us in such a way to foster comments and discussion. I think Ebbs will find many in agreement with few otherwise.
