Armourer life

#1
I can't seem to find any other topics like this, but if there already is one i apologise in advance...


I was originally looking to join REME as an electronics tech, however I have seen some information on the armourer role, and it looks more interesting to me (as I am already a keen shooter and enjoy the maintenance of the rifles I have fired).


I was just wondering what day to day armourers work is like, i understand not every day is the same, but would be interested to know the general idea of what I would be doing.

Also on ops, do armourers generally stay in the FOB/workshop? Obviously I understand this would depend on what type of unit your attached to.

Equally has anyone got any opinions on whether to go for armourer over electronics tech, or vice versa?

Any advice appreciated

You can't find much on here about armourers - unless of course you use the search function :p

Spend all day in inspecting susats or changing 500 flash eliminators. Or fixing weapons that stupid people have broke because they think they know better.

Fair enough. I'd love to be an armourer but all of this "armourers sit on their arses making shit or painting warhammer or watching porn" is just getting annoying and putting me off. :/

If you dont want to be an armourer you could be:

Recy Mec: Drink Piss, Eat Shit, Cum on your mates etc etc
Tech: Ultimate geek off
Tech Storeman: Count nuts n Bolts
VM: Change bulbs and update JAMES all day.

etc etc etc

Any job in the Army is as good or as bad as you make it - If you're not busy people will find you work. If others are busy then you'll get stuck in and help them out. Or in some cases - take over from the useless kunts! :) Top job if you have a sense of humour and enjoy a bit of a giggle!

You dont like porn? Gods trade aint for you then.

It is the best job by far.
