Must be hard to fire and maneuver without a magazine inserted. Well I suppose you can maneuver all day long.

No, I've seen combat cameramen snapping pictures during firefights. Not what I would pull out when someone is shooting at me but hey good on 'em.

Like how the uniforms tend to blend in, too bad the Army and AF managers can't figure that one out.

Yes... Except the helmets, WTF is up with this culture of having non cammed helmets!? That is your highest point, often the first thing to come into view and you disregard effective cam on it? :uhh:

Got me fucked!

Shape, Shine, Shadow, Silhouette, Spacing and Movement. Painting fixes shine only, shape and silhouette are still issues with this.

I know I bitch about this but this is shit drummed into basic recruits. It's become a pet peeve. :doh:

Well normally rolling around in a big loud noisy ass humvee tends to let the enemy know that we are there.lol But hey I get what you are saying.

Is it for just training or do guys wear the helmet, vests, and heavy gloves in a jungle environment?

Well they could have been moving to an urban hit, or you train how you fight and that is what you fight in these days. It could also just be to add to the suck factor.

Suck it would, big time. Guess I'm old school. That shit is too cumbersome in thick undergrowth. Wait-a-minute vines would be all over the helmet.
