    I like the part at around 6:10 where all the trainees are in a semi-circle pointing their .45s at the instructors stomach and groin areas.

    And lest we all get TOO pleased with ourselves...keep in mind these guys won World War II.

    You'll also notice how carefully they safety checked each weapon before doing anything else.
