Lots of "hardcore infantry" dudes never did much outside of landscaping and janitorial duties.
6. People you care about die in combat. You are neither prepared for, nor do you understand the process of watching your friends die while STILL having to do your job. God knows as a soldier I wasn't prepared for it, I have no doubt someone with no training and ideas of grandeur would fall apart the second an enemy bullet pierces the skull of your closest buddy. Stop pretending you could handle it. Stop pretending that it's something you could do.

Last December my heat pump went out and the guy they sent over had seen my gun safe in the garage and proceeded to talk tactical hypothesizing SHTF scenarios and telling me how he is teaching his 10-year-old how to shoot a 1911 in case someone breaks in while he isn't there.
I just wanted him to fix the damn heat pump and couldn't wait for him to leave. I am not all that interested in that stuff anymore, I lost sight in my right eye from an IED many years ago. I still like to shoot now and then retraining with my left eye, but I just feel like walking away when conversations turn to that sort of thing.
I like your rant.
Dry to hear that!!!!
Have you tried to make muscle memory using the other eye?
It does take a lot of time and effort( so I am told, no personal experience here, but I was born left eye dominant right hand fire. I adapted early in life to using my right eye to shoot, I can qualify expert with either hand, I have in fact.) to do this in adult life.
