"That makes me think about something else with the 9MM. We were sitting around in our tent in Bosnia one winter evening and had nothing better to do so we practiced "drawing at close range vs drawn upon person taking the weapon away" (unloaded of course)."
I don't know what combat school you were trained in...but you would never have gotten that close without me double-tapping you and moving on.

This wasn't a combat school- this was a tent
- as in, a bunch of guys in their longjohns sitting around shooting the sh!t and not having anything better to do- three feet of snow on the ground and hours and hours of nothing in front of you.
This SGT friend of mine says "you know, if you push against the barrel of the 9mm, it won't fire". I say, "No sh!t?" So we PLAYED around with it. It was for sh!ts and giggles- to pass the time you know?
I only brought it up to point out that the military 9mm, won't fire in this situation. I've got better things to do with my time than go to a combat school or karate class. Jeez, lighten up.
