Ya, I really could imagine wait it must be like on the receiving end of some long bursts of suppressive fire. If you can see it, you probably can hit it, out to 1100 meters or so...

I would have set up some defensive positions where you could hold'em off.

Last time I shot one (SEALS in training let me shoot theirs, plus lots of other of their toys), I killed the target. As in made the whole thing fall over (it was not supposed to do that). What a kick!!!

Something a little unusual from the UK from 1950/60s for wingnuts everywhere smile

Lucky me. I got my draft notice, decided that four years in the USAF beat two in the Army, Navy, or Marines (this was the early 60's). So I joined, went to basic and tech school, then got assigned to an Army base for two years. Then sent to an AF base in Panama for 18 months, of which I spent at least half of the time with the Army, crawling around in the jungle. There is no justice in the world. (but at least I did get to play with a lot of the Army's weapons and ammo)...

Just saw the movie last night. It was great! Like others have already said, the Will Smith character was not as well prepared as one would've expected. He should've had at least one side arm on his person at all times. As well as a large fixed blade knife on his belt. A small personal FAK in a cargo pocket would've been a good idea too. He should've had a few 12ga shotguns laying around his apartment for CQB. Those are just a few of the "mistakes" I picked up on. Anyone see any more?
