What is this?

SubliminalChase11 karma

Will be back in a bit. 2 hours tops.

_Blood_Fart_8 karma

Do you get live ammo or a cork and a string?

SubliminalChase21 karma

They are issued weapons that shoot blanks, if a role player is issued a weapon as a police officer, ect. They are given modified airsoft weapons.

[EDIT] It's been a blast talking with everyone, if you have questions still feel free to message me and I'll get to them as I can. I currently have to drive home and will be around again to answer publicly later tonight.

What is your yearly income?

SubliminalChase14 karma

Sadly, like previously stated, I can't disclose that. But know it's pretty decent.

RandomRedditor442 karma

Can you give me an example of where a role is important? Does the game change if I am a medic, fisherman, police officer, etc?

SubliminalChase2 karma

If a civilian is shot, and was innocent. How would the public react? What the military does reflects how we as role players treat them. The roles are for realism.

How does one get into this kind of work?

SubliminalChase3 karma

I found it in the unemployment office. Search around online for military installations near you to see if they actively do training with civilians.

Do you kick ass at Call of Duty?

SubliminalChase5 karma

Funny thing is that I barely play xD

waterleak_2 karma

I did JRTC in FT Polk with 1st Cav back in 08. Now that I'm out, role playing would be kind of fun. How much do they pay? Is it worth taking 2 weeks off from work?

SubliminalChase2 karma

Can't give pay information, sorry. But I say it's good pay for what you do.

smp41111 karma

I think it's absolutely awesome that this takes place so close to me and that you treat it as realistically as you do. My question is, do you ever see yourself getting bored with it, or is it such a constant state of change that there's always something different and new?

SubliminalChase3 karma

It's ever changing, besides some downtime of normal village stuff like gardening and such. There's always something going on! So no, I don't see myself getting bored!

wave_theory1 karma

Are there any actual military guys with you? We did this too as part of our training, but the op-4 (opposition force) guys were all people from our squadrons that had already been through it and had signed up to work on the other side.

SubliminalChase1 karma

As in what? Expand on this a bit?

Bikemancs_at_work1 karma

I think he's asking what role the 509th plays.

SubliminalChase2 karma

They fill in where needed but mostly play as the opposing force or the national security forces of the country that isn't the US

radnuts141 karma

Why don't you guys use simunition? I did an exercise with the Marines once and those rounds raise the stakes a little when you're in a firefight!

SubliminalChase2 karma

I'm sure it's to do with safety xD I'm just a roleplayer, that's a question for the higher ups.

SmartyChance1 karma

Is the training built for you by outside contractors (aka "industry partners") as useful as you'd like? How can it be better?

SubliminalChase3 karma

To be completely honest, I'm not sure how to answer this, there are reviews of scenarios that take place to assess and correct issues if that's what you are asking.

farning101 karma

Are there any real safety precautions you have to take during the training? Is your job dangerous at all?

SubliminalChase5 karma

There are always dangers but safety is what we take the most serious out there. It's hard to explain the inner workings though.

LOL! Haven't had one yet, however we have done nuclear disaster training, where we were sent through DECON lines (decontamination.) We were given all kinds of Hollywood style makeup wounds. I was lungshot by shrapnel for instance with a sucking chest wound for them to contain along with all the chaos.
