    Is this old footage, or are they looking at resurrecting the M60. The 240Gs are just 240Cs with the buttstock, the Minimi has been a bust. They can build new M60s cheaper than anything else.

    No way are they going back to the M-60. I got a brief the other day that they may resurrect a few M-60 because production cannot keep up with the outfitting of M-240's. Never heard a bad word about the M-240

    Just like the Gov., find something that works all the time, then mothball it. I have a feeling that our soldiers would be better equipped with WWII era firearms. The .30-06 would put those "insurgents" down a lot quicker than the poodle shooters. I don't think we would be hearing the horror stories about insurgents taking 7 shots to the torso, and still living long enough to kill our boys. Drugs or no drugs. It would plant their d*** in the dirt. In the case I am talking about G. Gordon Liddy reported that the drugged insurgent was finally put down with one shot from a (WWII era again) 1911 .45. Big bullets work better.

    They do work BETTER, but depending on how much of what drugs they are on they could still keep comeing. I have known a couple cops that were on scene of a couple different guys way high on PCP that got turned into swiss cheese from 12 guage blasts as well as dozens of rounds of 9mm and so on and wouldnt stop, in the one case the guy had (IIRC) something like 12 or 14 12ga slugs through him and about 45 or 50 handgun holes by the time he went down most if not all in the torso.

    How dumb can they get? With a shotty, take out the knees if two in the chest and one in the head doesn't work. Training cannot take the place of thinking, thus spake me.

    Pretty close. Obviously it did kill the guy but short of distroying the brain its self the brain will continue to function for as much as 30 seconds to a minute after the heart stops and (as I understand the process of the effects) some of the drugs like high (near fatal doses) of PCP can cause the body to not respond to the shock factor as the nerves no longer carry the messages of pain and injury in the same way. So the brain still tells the body what to do and pain is not comprehended nor is injury so as long as the bone dosnt fold and the ends still wedge the bone fairly straight they will keep walking on a broken leg as if it were uninjured, basicly if the body is still in tact they continue to function with increased strength and no concept of pain untill the brain has used up all O2 in the blood it has in the brain and starves and shuts down. So its not a matter of them keeping going for hours with those loads in them but more like a deer that after haveing its heart blown out still runs 50 to 100 yards before falling (have seen it more than once and the entire heart destroyed). Kind of an extention of the reasoning behind the 21 foot rule.

    Silly Melbo, don't you know that you kill ZOMBIES with a shot to the brain?

    Guess I've been watching too many horror flicks. I thought ZOMBIES had a collective brain, couldn't kill just one, the rest would take over. ;)
