        *sigh* I don't even know where to start with that load of nonsense...

        I do remember hearing about the group on that Chem Tanker from another Armed Guards firm (one that is very reputable) and their opinion of them, their professionalism and their actions was not overly favourable...

              Its an M14 I believe. Pretty reliable semi-automatic, high accuracy. Good for people who don't fire bullets willy nilly.

                He bigs it up in the way he's written his book. He sounds either extremely reckless but extremely lucky or a liar.

                You play too much Call of Duty. The only useful role of the M14 at Sea is firing a RAS Dildo.

                  Yes right he is writing a book, so of course he either is extremely lucky or a liar. No point writing a book of nothingness! /facepalm. A books a book, its not an official report, I think you picked it up for the wrong reason. If you read some of the military books, which can be backed up with intel from Afgahnistan, you'll find out how lucky you really can be too. :P

                  Obviously not as I have seen many military personnel use an M14 at sea.... The reason they use it for firing RAS Dildos is because they were very common among US navy before....

                  They are now favoured by a lot of South African Private Military Companies for some reason. US Navy sniper/marksmen units still train with them, not sure on their use though.

                  I mean christ they used to use normal single shot rifles in Napoleons day pretty accrete at sea. Of course you can use an M14 well at sea. Whats the difference in that and an M4 in semi-auto? Of course an M4 is nicer, but if your mercenery company, you might not have the cash for the upgrade from your normal stock, or they might be likely to get pinched by customs or for a whole host of reasons including personel preferance.

                  I found this quite amusing...
