Has anyone on here trained or practiced with either of these?
MILES is shit... Sim rounds are fun in a place like MOUT city or something
MILES is indeed shit, heres a pic of some sims i have in my room, i have a whole case hidden
Miles gear sucks donkey cock
only from America's Army
how do sim rounds work
just like regular bullets basically. the clear plastic tip with paint inside as seen in the ones in my pic fires like a regular bullet does. hurts like hell when it hits you. think paintball, but fairly more accurate as the sim round is more like a real round and not a ball
won't lead and paint have pretty different balistics regardless?
and i assume the troops would have to wear face protection?
yeah we wear either full masks or just ballastic goggles. i have seen Navy SEALs do it though with no protection wat so ever and just their swim trunks on. fucking crazy bastards
a shot in the eye would kill them, wouldn't it?
A normal paintball could kill if hit in the eye, so im assuming those will too.
how could it kill if it hit in the eye?
of course, death or having to leave behind your lifelong calling are two piles of the same shit.
We only use blanks on training exercises here.
We're getting a MILES-ripoff soon though (hopefully.) And I've never seen a simround, although sounds like a pile of fun.
I don't really get what you mean by the second sentence, but I hear those things shoot at the same fps as a real bullet. A shot in the eye with one of those could easily go into the brain you would think.
getting hit in the eye by anything sucks, a guy we were playing paintball with when i was younger was runnign with his painball gun and had his mask up. he tripped, fell and the barrell went in his eye and the gun went off, fucked up his eye really bad but he survivied.
I wonder what the Navy SEALs were trying to prove training without any sort of face mask or ballistic goggles. That they're stupid? It's too damn easy to get hurt doing that shit.
But on the topic, I've only used MILES, us weekend warriors (this is a long weekend...) don't get the cool shit like sim rounds. Like everyone said, MILES is worthless.
Just a Example how shit it is.. During JRTC walking inside the TOC it went off .. It likes to go off on its own sometimes.
hahahaha, i remember that. i think i got "shot" twice just going to the porta shitter.
I hated FortPolk ....
I've used sim rounds extensively through my training. They are the most realistic form of "live fire" training available. They allow you to enter the fight using the gun. The shots aren't as loud, but they are still there.
