Air Force "Shoot to Disarm" training? SRSLY?

A friend of mine just posted on FB: "I just want to know why it's always the kill shot. Whatever happened to shooting to disarm? Hell, when I had to qualify with firearms in the Air Force, we were told that the kill shot was the very last resort." That sounds like BS to me. The military small arms t...

Re: Fallout 4......

My kid thinks my weapon names are stupid. I call my napalm-thrower "OOO Burn!" My sniper rifle is "Yoo Hoo!" He does kinda like my .45 combat rifle, "Bloodbath."

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Multiple on-scene eyewitnesses who are friends of friends are insisting that it was not a "civilian" who shot the man last night, but an LEO. Still waiting for confirmation from my credentialed journalist friend who was on the scene.

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

Charleston is named for King Charles II, and Charlotte is named for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III. Charleston was heavily (though not exclusively) Loyalist during the Revolution, and Charlotte was called a "Hornet's Nest of Rebellion" by Cornwallis.

Re: what's going on in Charoltte?

I'm at work today right in the middle of where it all happened last night. The streets are quiet, the restaurants are closed. Bank of America and Wells Fargo employees are working form home today, but no such luck for me. The shooting last night is not yet a fatality. The victim is in critical condi...

Re: Fallout 4......

Picked up a full suit of X-01 Power Armor and a couple of partial suits last night. I painted the full suit with the Shark design.

Re: Fallout 4......

I did the Clockwork Orange thing last night: Long Johns, Bowler hat, and walking stick. Beat a few raiders to death. Just needed a little of the old Ludwig Van.

Ran into Parker Quinn and bought his charge card. I knew it was a scam, but I'm bloody rich.

Re: Fallout 4......

Yeah, you can equip your companions by giving them apparel/weapons and clicking the the Y button. Same with all your settlers. I tend to equip all my settlement guards in fatigues and combat armor. You can undress them by putting them in armor over apparel that doesn't accommodate armor. I had Abern...

Re: Fallout 4......

I like Piper, Cait and Curie, all for different reasons. Lately, I've been ignoring the Institute quests and running around the Commonwealth with Cait, slaughtering raiders, Gunners, Super Mutants, feral ghouls and other baddies. I have her dressed as Grognak the Barbarian and wielding Grognak's Axe...

I've been playing too much Fallout, because my first thought was to shoot any trail cameras, milk jugs, etc. I might see along the trail.

Re: Fallout 4......

I forgot about the Carhenge behemoth. I passed through there early on but I haven't been back, even though I visit Sunshine Tidings regularly. I can't remember how I killed him. I think it was with a missile launcher.

There's one hanging around the Super Duper Mart in Lexington that with patience and a lot of ammo you can kill from one of the rooftops (assuming a ghoul does...

At Level 55, my character is a freakin' invincible juggernaut. My companions are for entertainment purposes only. I took out all the Raiders in the Combat Zone in about 30 seconds with my .45 combat rifle "Bloodbath". I dispatched a Mirelurk Queen in the State House with my combat shotgun I named "K...

Re: Fallout 4......

So I picked up Cait last night. I showed her a good time by traveling from one raider den to the next and wiping them out with my suppressed 10mm "Sneaky Pete". Then she wanted to have a talk with me right after we entered Beantown Brewery. As she told me that I'm not like other people, raiders star...

I did the intro mission for the Railroad and scored a neat little silenced PPK. I almost want to find a tuxedo and become a wasteland James Bond. :clap: I also maxed out my gun nut perk and now I get to play with all the neat mods for guns. Well, all the ones that don't require the Science perk. Sp...

Re: Fallout 4......

If you retake the Castle with Preston Garvey, it's a good idea to have a heavy combat shotgun that does at least 100 damage. There's also a quest to help Barney Rook in Salem that will net you a sweet sniper rifle named Reba that does 50% additional damage to bugs and mirelurks that is good to have...

I discovered yesterday that there is a limit to what can be built in a settlement when playing on a console (PC might be different), even if you have the materials to build with.

I did the Curie quest and got her a new body. I built up affinity with her very quickly (my character's charisma is 10) and the flirt option came up. I flirted a little, but didn't pursue it to romance. Will the flirt/romance option be available again in the future, or is it a one-time thing? Edit: ...

Re: Fallout 4......

I was attacking Gunners Plaza, sniping the sentries and turrets one by one, when Piper ran out into the open and started shooting the baddies, so I had to start fighting in the open and I got hit with a mini-nuke and died. :evil: When I respawned, I made her stay back while I did my thing.
