    Compete Assemble Movement Speed

    Often you see in moves, gun owners, soldiers will play the game of assemble guns and compete for speed.

    Do you think watchmakers do that for fun as well? Two makers select the same movement, set....and GO!

    Yeah, that's pretty common with these guys. Only they call it "work" instead of a "game"

    Soldiers don't do it as a game...We do it as training, you might need to do it in combat, we trained to do it blindfolded too,
    might be dark on the battlefield.

    Yes, I remember training to field strip and reassemble a M16 blindfolded.
