This is my rifle
Wed Jul 14, 2010 2:39pm

Kudos to those who recognize this!

There are many like it,
But this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend.
It is my life.
I must master it,
as I master my life.

My rifle,
Without me is useless.
Without my rifle,
I am useless.
I must fire my rifle true.
I must shoot straighter than any enemy who is trying to kill me.
I must shoot him,
Before he shoots me.
I will...

My rifle and myself,
Know what counts in this war,
Is not the rounds we fire,
The noise of our burst,
Nor the smoke we make.
We know that it is the hits that count.
We will hit...

My rifle is human, even as I,
Because it is my life.
Thus, I will learn it as a brother.
I will learn its weakness,
Its strength, its parts,
Its accessories, its sights,
And its barrel.
I will keep my rifle clean and ready,
Even as I am clean and ready.
We will become a part of each other.
We will...

Before God I swear this creed.
My rifle and myself,
Are the defenders of my country.
We are the masters of our enemy.
We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until there is victory,
And there is no enemy,
But peace.

Anyone know what this is? haha

      Your days of finger-banging old Mary Jane Rotten Crotch through her pretty pink panties is over! You are married to this piece, this beautiful weapon of iron and wood. And you will be faithful!

        That's from Full Metal Jacket, the same movie where they recite that Rifleman's Creed. That's the first thing my mind went to. But what do you expect, I'm a movie fanatic and that's a Kubrick film.
        • Well Luccian , Wed Jul 14 10:54pm
          You should be happy to learn that they really do make us learn that at boot camp then. And woe to anyone that doesn't. I saw many a recruit quarter decked for not knowing it after going through the... more

      I remember the creed, had too look up the name though. It's called the Rifleman's Creed, or also the The Creed of the United States Marine.
      • CongratulationsLuccian, Wed Jul 14 6:14pm
        You're completely right. You get kudos! I was going through my graduation book from boot camp and saw it in there. So I decided to share.
        • Huh.Zeo, Thu Jul 15 7:22pm
          I was right there with Kail. I knew it was from Full Metal Jacket. Didn't know it was really used though. Keen. I should probably post soon.

                    I used that for a catchy title. I'm rarely wrong. You can say no to call-ins. This I know from five years of retail. Remember your D.A.R.E training and JUST! SAY! NO! Unless it's to posting. Then you ... more
