Then we are just going to have to agree to disagree. The doughboys of WWI and GI's of WWII were used to rifles. During that time more of the U.S. population was rural, and as such our guys knew how to shoot. Remember the story of Private York? My family that served was the same way, they all grew up hunting and shooting. You cannot tell me that these rural doughboys and GI's were not better prepared to shoot the enemy than the modern day kids are who play video games. You know what I get out of video games? Fun, that's it. What I get out of a lifetime of hunting and shooting means a lot more. Look at the rounds expended per enemy kill has risen with every war. I attribute a lot of this to the fact that we do not have the same number of young men growing up shooting and becoming riflemen. Video games do not prepare individuals for shooting like real shooting does. A kid playing 1st person shooters vs. someone who grew up shooting? I know where I give the advantage. .
