back with a vengeance
On forum: 07/31/2003
Not to worry Amoki, I was just kidding with you, although I must admit I was pretty surprised when I saw that your 'need help with weapon issues' thread has reached about nine pages.
I've done a fair ammount of weapon research myself, and come away with a great deal more respect for the Russians as engineers than I had before, I knew they were talented and held in high regard but some of the weapons they created were quite remarkable ( not that I'm overly keen on firearms per se, but even people like myself have to be impressed that an assault rifle as old as the AK-47 is still held out as the ideal, and has rarely been bettered ).
BTW, my re-writing of Part 3 is going well, it's totally different to the one you read as I've decided that Parts 3 and 4 are going to be told from Lukin's point of view ( something which has tested my writing skill, but that's never a bad thing ).
You do that.
I have to put up such long post because I had a lot of things to ask, I am doing a new story, and it had nothing to do with the usual lametns on the cause of The Zone, stalker dying here and there etc., you know the things. I had even post up the story here in the forum, it was somewhere in the Lt.Con. Hopefully it is good enough to win me the game

From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli'
We fight our countrys battles In the air', on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom , And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title Of United States Marines.
Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze From dawn to setting sun';
We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy Ever gaze on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines. - US Marines Hymn
