He's a reservist USAF Lt Colonel, flies (or flew, he may now be retired) KC-135 refuelers. In other words, he's been terrorizing some reserve squadron's meetings for 20 years. I've spoken to him by phone, and immediately regretted doing so even if we did share the same service. He fills the "I don't know much but I think I do" category of reviewer. He can shoot, and he can talk, and I guess he fills a need, but he's no expert. Odds are, he never qualified with an M16 in the Air Force (most pilots never do, some never even held one before).
