    Xray was the unassigned 11 series.. all of us in my company had that when we first went in.. it wouldn't make sense to make any RA 11X while on active duty, too much specialized training for both TOW and Bradley crew IMO

    11x is just what they list you at enlistment-unassigned.My first day "down range" at basic they called 15 guys names from my platoon and had us line up against a wall.Then they said you are going to be 11hs.Bradley guys are 11m.

    there is nothing like that mark-19 though.... 1800meters and watch the **** blow up... we got to use HE when we were out in california... what a beautiful thing....

    I got to use the .50 a bunch.. but not the Mk19, I was the unit armorer when we first got them at C co but all I got to do was clean them up to get them ready for qualifying and classes...
