Okay, you caught me. I actually did hear a WNG buck Sergeant telling his toops how rough it was up in the "Z" in 1972, where he was a "Green Beret Sergeant". I called him aside and asked when he was born, he answered with no hesitation, 1958. I said I had never met a Special Forces Sergeant that was fourteen years old, in Viet Nam. He turned red enough to light a cigarrette off his forehead. I let it drop, but I never again heard him bragging on being a Nam Vet.SatCong said:TG,
Man, you must have had DEEP selection! The black hats at Benning can be rough on an 8 year-old butter bar!

Shotguns are for close engagements, you know, like where the 11.5" CAR is good. They were used to devastating effect against the moros in the Philipines and inflicted such horrible casualties in WWI, that the Germans tried to have them banned under the Geneva Convention as being "unfair".
