Isn't it time for "Cans" to go Marine Corps wide
The above photo showed up in my news feed and unless I'm mistaken that devil dog has a suppressor on his rifle.
But isn't it time for all USMC Infantry to start using them? The benefit? Besides flash, the other quick and dirty way of determining where fire is coming from is by noise....removing an identifier for enemy forces is always a win. IF we make maneuver a solid part of the way that we employ our ground forces then reducing noise signature is going to become even more important.
I think the time has come. If I recall correctly there was a movement to do just that but I don't know what happened. This revival is (if it is a revival) welcomed!
