    I am long retired now but occassionally comments like this will bring parts of my personality into play that are not suitable for mixed company but served me well in more primitive places and times. Such was the case with my original response.

    So, my apologies again to my brothers-in-arms. I'll be glad to buy you all a beer and argue this and many other topics in the enlisted club, as we did those many years ago.
    Well done, Sir. It takes a very BIG man to utter 3 LITTLE words - "I was wrong." My hat's off to you!
    When it comes to handguns, there are Sig Sauers, then there's everything else.

    But, apologies aside, if you do not recoginze the skill required to take a tactical interdiction shot in the dark, at sea, from a moving platform, at a moving target, you need to re-check your range cards. Additionaly, if you believe the comments made herein about range limitations and limited long gun capability within Special Warfare, think again.

    In my youth I had the privelege to serve in units and capacities that fully qualify me to speak to these capabilities. I served in the Teams and specifically to this point, attended and graduated from the USMC Scout / Sniper program. The kids that serve today make all of us look like cavemen. They are better trained and more qualified than we ever were or hoped to be.

    Bill,
    Situation understood. Thank you for your service, and looking back at earlier posts, I can see where someone not used to the styles and mannerisms of our regulars might find offense. There is a strong bond of camaraderie amongst those who've served, and we often deride each other, just like we did on active duty. No loss of respect, just inter-service rivalry.
