Great post, Seen them myself at Parris Island in 81. along with the Marine Corps band. Their truly dedicated.
Rick, yes thx from me too for that link - I had not seen this vid.
The degree of skill involved is awesome and as for how much practice well - we can but imagine. Have to wonder in early days how much they ding the rifles but probably they have real beaters for that!!

As impressive as it is on video, it's about 10 times more impressive in person! I've had the pleasure a couple times, and am always amazed!
