The only legitimate ones I have are Expert quals for the M16A2 and the M9, but I got me a whole chestful of ROTC fruit salad.


No boom, no boom, no boom, Amen.

The one bottom row second from the right (the "more shooting stuff") is the same ribbon as one I received for "Tactical Excellence." (Ain't I good?) What is it for in Norway?

I forgot to answer this one..

It's the NAIS medal (pronounced: nice medal..... )
It stands for "Norsk Avdeling av Den Internasjonale Skytterunion".
(You understand that one, right... )

It's a shooting/marksmanship medal.
We use our AG3 rifle, 10 shots lying down, and 10 on our knees on 200 meters distance.
You have to take the gold badge, bronze medal, silver medal, and then you get the gold medal/ribbon.
Each step here increases the difficulty, and you can only take one pr year, so you have to use a minimum of 4 years to get that ribbon..
The ribbon is not that special, but it's actually quite difficult to get (I don't remember the score right now...)

Nice. Is it a static target or are they pop-ups?
