    I was thinking the same thing about the .308 comment. the last time I checked (and happen to have one) the standard round for an AK-47 is in fact 7.62x39

    The M2 was considered an offensive weapon due to hi-cal and round composition plus the HUGE damage it did to human bodies: KA-SPLAT, so we were told to shoot only at a BG's web-gear, and that is Gospel! The 'get around' when some wise-ass medic tried to duck the training. If they didn't want us to use 'em then I wonder why we had one on every tracked vehicle in our inventory/TO&E: M113/577 that was a field ambulance/Aid Station (Mech Infantry) and still is today. So as Army medics we had to qualify with the grunts and tankers and BFV crews. Single shot sniping at distances up to 1,000 meters was some incredible triaining, we picked up the term that any soldier who was screwing up a job bad had to have his/her 'head-space and timing adjusted', I wonder if that saying still is around?
    .50's are a great way to clear a route to a soldier down even if the Geneva Convention says non-combatants (medics/Chaplains) should not play with such lethal stuff, we sure did.

  5. Soninlaw was not given a silver star when rescuing Miss Lynch because he was using a ma-duce to stop incoming fire when they went in. 7 confirmed killed .This was given to him in writing by his CO.

  6. Yes "Operator head space and timing" is still used as a term of endearment for the Knuckleheads who screw up.

    I can't help but wonder about the Geneva Conventions and the Hague Accords...When do we EVER hear about them except when one of our people MIGHT have rubbed up against the limits of one? I'm sure the taliban,al quaida,Hezbola,PLO,P-IRA,and hamas ALL follow them to the letter...don't they?
    I think,and this is only my think,that not many people or governments seem to care about them except us,untill they,or the left-wing back stabbing media thinks that one of our fighting men or women broke one.

    Good post,CL.
