CA – MILITARY – This might be the deadliest Marine Corps recruit on Parris Island (VIDEO)

Marine Corps boot camp is a time of firsts: the first time a grown man or woman screamed so loud and so close to your face; the first time you heard the names Opha Mae Johnson, John Basilone or the phrase “treat, never, keep, keep”; the first time you realized beds were called racks and that there’s a right and a wrong way to make one. It also marks the first time for many that they held, let alone fired, a rifle. But for Austin Ferrell, it was just another day on the range when he went and shot an almost perfect score during rifle qualification at Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, on July 30. According to a Marine Corps news story by Cpl. Shane Manson, Ferrell pulled off an impressive score of 248 out of 250 during Table 1 of Marine Corps Rifle Qualification. For anyone who’s wondering: That’s really good. Like, Carlos Hathcock good. In fact, it’s the highest any recruit has ever shot at Parris Island. The first part of Marine Corps Rifle Qualification, called Table 1, involves shooting in the prone, kneeling, and standing positions from up to 500 yards with an M16A4 with the Rifle Combat Optic. The second portion, Table 2, focuses on combat marksmanship and is generally considered the easier of the two, which makes it even more impressive that Ferrell dominated Table 1 the way he did. “I grew up with a rifle in my hand; from the time I was six I was shooting and building firearms with my dad, he was the one that introduced me to shooting, and when I got to Parris Island, what he taught me was the reason I shot like I did,” Ferrell said in the article. Now, I know there are hordes of keyboard warriors just waiting to scream out: “Well, let’s see him do it with iron sights!” But I’d be willing to put money down that Ferrell is probably still a good shot without an RCO considering how he spent his adolescence. “I would go out to a family friend’s range five days a week and practice shooting from distances of up to a mile, it’s a great pastime and teaches you lessons that stay with you past the range,” Ferrell said.  For his part, Ferrell attributes his accuracy to plenty of practice, and the more relaxed environment recruits are treated to on the range — drill instructors tend not to go flying off the handle and knife hand recruits as much while they’re learning the fundamentals of marksmanship and how to control their breathing.  [full article]
