    I just started the movie. Sometimes I like watching train wrecks.

    Their budget obviously didn't include a weapons handler and trainer. Most of these guys look like this is their first time holding a rifle.

    Here's an actual radio call a guy makes:

    "Beeline, this is dog bite. How copy, over? Beeline, dog is at Delta. No joy on the package. Last chance is echo. Oscar Mike there now."

    You guys were looking at this all wrong. This is a comedy, not a drama.

    Seagull keeps switching off from shooting his rifle left handed to right handed in the middle of firefights. He no doubt thought it would be extra tacticool and insisted it be part of his act.

    pretty much any current movie with Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren or Jean Claude Van Damme will be a stinker.

    Seagull keeps using his unmagnified red dot as a scope to keep an eye on things from a window.

    Chuck Norris made a post Viet Nam movie that was just full of so many error's it was hard to concentrate on the plot. He was a regular Army Colonel with hair past his ears and a full beard. He wore an Australian Bush Hat with the side buttoned up. Watching him run with an M-16 was really funny. He was holding it like it was a 2X4 that he wanted as far away from his body as possible. His fight scenes were great, but the details! Maybe they didn't want to pay a technical adviser.

    Little known fact: Silencer Gunshot was the name Seagal used for the Japanese porn films he made in the '70s

    I’ve shot past 600 with a precision 308. Course overall I’m a terrible long range shot and ended up selling my precision rig. Also I was just shooting steel

    My understanding is that once the round drops below the speed of sound, it's a crapshoot.

    Here is a video from Larry Vickers, shooting at ~1300 I think. What jumped out at me is that I honestly can't tell when he hit the target or when he didn't. And unless he's shooting at King Kong, he's not gonna accomplish anything useful in the real world.

    That said - there are probably a lot better long-range shooters than Larry Vickers. Maybe his spotter was just being kind in his comments.

    I did ,a lot. I still wish I could find those 100 round revolvers, the ones never needing reloading. I also like the way the good guys "threw "the bullets at the bad guys while riding. Muzzle up, flick it down, bang, bad guy goes down. Loved it.

    Not surprising. American history treated him with kid gloves. Other counties historians, not so much.

    Stillwell was so incompetent during the action in Burma that the Chinese wanted to have him shot. Only thing that kept him alive after he abandoned the Chinese army under him in Burma was they didn't want to risk losing American support. He spent the rest of the war in isolation, doing nothing but complaining about everyone he had to work with.

    The Chinese wanted to get rid of him and the US brass didn't want him back because he was such a miserable SOB in person. The nickname Vinegar Joe was not a compliment.

    Stillwell did really well during the Louisiana manuevers in 1941 which is why he is remembered as a "great" general.
