Recoiless rifles aren't.


Avoid being conspicuous. This attracts fire, which will annoy the people around you.


Try to look unimportant. They may be low on ammo.



Your weapon was built by the low bidder.


The Meal, Ready to Eat. 3 lies for the price of 1. Not a meal, not ready, can't eat them.


Spartan mothers told their sons "Return with your shield, or upon it."
Later this tradition declined.
So did Sparta.
