    In all practicality, It helped me memorize the serial number on mine when it was issued to me.

    The only upside to this-- if they are decommissioned and taxpayer dollars are spent to get sights without the biblical references, I can get one of the decommissioned pieces for cheap as military surplus.
    Two questions:

    1. Does the USMC allow you to perches your own accessories? I know there was some hubbub about body armor a while back, but if you had a preference for a grip or a light, is there some leeway to buy your own?

    2. (kind of off-topic) Does the USMC currently use the Land Warrior System, plan to use it, or is the USMC developing their own?

    Ultimately depends on what the higher-ups (usually at least a company commander) allows...

    From my own experience, they generally don't care about certain items such as slings, tactical pouches, etc. as long as no obvious uniform regs. are violated. And even this goes out the window in combat situations.

    Weapons accessories were standard issue (by weapon system) but no one was forced to put anything on their weapon they did not want to. If, say, you were issued a surefire light but preffered another brand, no one I ever had in my chain of command would complain. (everyone I knew used their ACOGs, they are good sights)

    With regards to actual personal weapons, they were very restrictive. I had a Staff Sergeant in my company try to bring a personal rifle and it was confiscated.

    As far as armor is concerned, I was never issued the side plates, and didn't personally know anyone who had their own (they're expensive as hell). We just trained to keep our bodies square to targets in a fight to maximize the protective value of what we had.

    No, and as far as their plans I don't know. Whatever the case, its a bureaucracy and such decisions are liable to change with whatever way the wind blows.

    I just thought that since the Army is borrowing from the USMC for their new Class-A, that the Army might repay the USMC with the Land Warrior System

    The marines will probably get it in about 30 years or so...
