passing the pt test isnt squat.your gonna need endurance and alot of it,doing some pushups or being able to run 2 miles isnt gonna cut it.i started out in recon and if you cant get to where yer going all the pt tests arnt going to do any good.also its not just your body but your mind must be intune to.you need the attitude you can not only max the pt test but go beyond.listen to these guys they aint just killing time talking to you.goodluck and do good

Re: price range for long range rifle

Iím a SFC in the Army; my older brother is a RET USMC sniper/instructor. What I can tell you is that you will never get into sniper school if you canít shoot your M16 out to 500y. If you canít shoot expert at the range every time they will select the Marine that can. So I would spend my money on a nice AR. The two main reasons Marines fail this course is stalking and ranging unknown distance. Hope this helps
