    EOD facility, Camp Pendleton, CA

    This is not a museum, this is an active duty training facility located on an active military base, so access is difficult. The reason it contains a lot of old stuff is that people use anything to create bombs around the world and these young Marines must be able to recognize the archaic items. Frankly, my head was spinning from the variety of ammo. Enjoy.

    An awesome collection. And props to Vlad for gaining access.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Man, they have sure added a lot of goodies to their museum since I was there! The 120mm brass HEAT case for the Marine Corps heavy tank that is shown in Photo 2 and 7 of this set came from me. I also sourced the Securesearch Mine posters shown in the second set of photos.

    Pendleton always did have one of the best "Training Aids Libraries" and the best collection of small arms. Glad to see it's still there. Cheers, Bruce.
