Marines and Sailors of the Force Reconnaissance Platoon, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, engage targets on the port side elevator of the ship here, July 7. The group used M4 carbines and M45 pistols to hone their skills in close combat marksmanship. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness for the Asia Pacific region and the only continuously forward-deployed MEU. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Michael Oxton / released)
Already out and using the .45? Nice.
