Paratroopers from 3rd Brigade conducted a cordon and search in Fallujah. While conducting the operation, an Iraqi male walked out of a house with an automatic weapon and pointed it at the soldiers. The paratroopers immediately engaged and wounded the man...The operation resulted in the capture of five enemy personnel, including one of the primary targets – a weapons dealer who has conducted attacks on coalition forces in the past.

An extraordinarily foolish thing to do.

Also confiscated in the target area were an AK-47, 300 rounds of ammunition, a pistol, and a bayonet.

Not much of a haul. Guess the arms dealer keep the stuff away from the house.
