get them ALL? how long will you have to do so?Will any of them be able to fire a shot? u r in thick cover, they are fully-exposed, you raise up to fire after the last one is slightly past your position. They are smoking and joking.

Harry Claflin did this, the FIRST time he ever killed a man. 4 OTHER Force Recon Marines, all just as green as Harry was, were SUPPOSED to help. Harry was the radio man, and his LT was up the trail, clicking off the number of men coming into the ambush zone. The other guys froze, Harry needed a second "pass" with his M3 .45 smg to get them all down. He used up the entire 30 rd mag, at 7 shots per second. So the shock of being fired upon, in what they THOUGHT was a "totally safe" Plains of Jars, in Laos, left those bozos STANDING there, some of them for a full 4 seconds. Perhaps Harry's first "pass" across them with his smg got hits on everybody, but they weren't DOWN. Man, with a canned CAR, braced around a tree, at 10m, 4 seconds is time enough to hit a LOT of people, one 223 sp each.

Harry's team killed HUNDREDS of men

in just this fashion, in just a few months. You couldn't have done ANY such thing, with a bolt action.

Only a knucklehead would engage 8 armed men armed with SKS's at 10 yds if he were alone. Doesn't matter what kind of weapon you have. Much easier to let them pass, maybe follow them and engage at a later time when everything is in your favor. If you were on a search and destroy mission, you would have several others with you increasing your chance of success greatly.

Read up on real tactics, not what you get from comic books.

Agreed Rika

A loner would not have the support that a "team" player would have so it would be best for the loner to stay low and quiet,Im sure Claflin would have NOT engaged if it were not for having other members of his team with him.An engagement would be suicide.

And Jim Morris said- " The only difference between a war story and a fairy tale is one starts off- "once upon a time" while the other starts of with-"this ain't no <font color=red>[**censored**]</font>".":D

You shoot at the 8 men, kill a few, and one of them fires his rifle aleating the rest who then start deploying defensive fire. Their rifle fire attracts the RIFLE COMPANY what was behind them. There were the point element stupekid.

The company then threw out flanking patrols, blocking forces, and slowly squeezed you till you are stuck in a small pile of brush. Then with automatic fire they just chopped you to shreds. One dead bozo who was stupid enough to open fire without knowing just what he was up against.
