Toni System – AR15 Aiming System

Monday, November 16th, 2020

Toni System is an Italian company and this is their two-piece AR15 aiming system intended for competition shooting.

Using sight ribs like on a shotgun, they mount a 1.0mm fiber optic sight to one for long range shooting, while the other incorporates a 1.5mm fiber for short range shooting. They are offset at 45 degrees. Cant the rifle to acquire the sight picture desired.

This post was inspired by Frank Woods. I have it on good authority he uses it.

Maybe he was sitting on his helmet so his balls didn’t get blown off and forgot to put it back in before exiting the aircraft.

Wonder Why Soldiers Don’t Know Anything About Small Arms?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

It’s stuff like this. This is a screenshot from a popular website for Soldiers studying for promotion and monthly/quarterly boards. As you can imagine, lazy Senior NCOs who sit on those boards also use this unofficial site to harvest questions, rather than the actual official, doctrinal publications. Apparently, it’s been like this for years. It isn’t going to get any better unless switched-on Soldiers take the time to learn it correctly and pass that information on to their peers and subordinates.

If you want the latest on small arms for either general knowledge or to prepare for a board, visit www.armyadp.com/weapons-tc-3-22.9 to review questions derived from TC 3-22.9.

I’d like to thank SFC Steffan for bringing this issue to my attention.

Canadian Military Seeks Easter Island Targets

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

I know it’s not nice to make fun, but come on, this is just begging for it.

Canadian solicitation number W0142-21X003/A, for “Target Mannequins” is pretty extensive. But on Page 26, they used the drawing above to depict the targets they are looking to buy. For a second I thought they were trying to depict a guy using on of those toilet stools to gain some leverage.

But after a quick discussion we came to the general consensus that it was the Easter Island-style Ma’oi Targets they were after.

And Now For Something Completely Different

This Tactical Pith Helmet, based on a Vietnamese helmet was recently seen on @fareast_tactical which is run by fareastmilsim.com.

Of course, it led to this gem.

Okay, which one of you guys is “Ron Oates?”

But seriously. “Ron” we don’t sell ANYTHING. That might be why you can’t find any prices.
