(anti heavy armor, **** azvab, turns out i was a genius still after being out of high school and the standardized testing system)
anyway, i addressed the "miss print" and there i was behind some of the best optics the military had to offer instead of being shaken stupid behind a 240g or m2. like i said i was cross trained abit...i was dead nuts with the mk19.
