Do any former military guys remember the acronym for dealing with an AR-15 malfunction?

I was asked this the other day and I can't remember to save my life.

Swear
Protest that its the rifle's fault, not yours

Throw a fit
Steal someone elses rifle

Tap - smack the bottom of the magazine to enshure that it's properly seated
Rack - cycle the action manualy
Bang - get back into the fight

This is the USMC way, much faster and more realistic than the whole SPORTS thing, especially in combat.
