Thank you for that, glad I'm not just being instructed by idiots
. And you'll notice that I don't really care about drill, I just said that someone, probably a Marine, would bring that up as a reason not to switch. Also, training is not an ongoing process when you're switching to an entirely new basic infantry weapon - everyone has to be equally well trained on it, if only for the interchangeability factor. That's what I suggest a limited (regiment or smaller) trial just to see what some of the growing pains are.
