Left Turn executed.

I don't know, the guys who carry bazookas always have a reload.

What if you are attacked by a tank or APC?

OH, GOD, you MIGHT DIE ! ! !

Set up 2 targets. With your carry weapon, aim well and empty one magazine at target one in as rapid fire as your range would allow. Then run 100 yards. Next, grab that same gun and fire your next magazine at target two.

Now compare results and ask yourself the same question...

Oh, and if you do so, please feel free to show your work on the Forum...
Well being I'm what most people call "ONE BIG SUM BITCH!" concealing just about anything is possible. May look goofy but It can be done.

As for the advice, (great advice btw) I have done this before and used to do it almost every weekend. I used to chase hogs into brush and pastures all night long and shoot then once i got close enough. Hogs are scarier than a crackhead with a gun IMHO. Hogs take multiple shots and can tear your leg off no problem so shot placement and speed are the reasons I have never been bitten by a hog. So yes I'm sure under pressure I can handle myself in accuracy and before anybody says well a hog won't shot back, I understand. The point is with adrenaline and being out of breathe while shooting, I have done this and I'm confident in my abilities.

Everybody needs to chase hogs through the brush once, it's tons of fun.

My son and I would love to chase 'em. He works, but I can show up most anytime.
