I was just watching Blackhawk Down. In one of the scenes one of our guys is scrambling, hauls ass through an occupied hovel, jumps through a window into the street and falls down. A kid of about 10 - 12 fires on him at that moment and misses's... striking what is presumably his father instead. The trooper regains his composure, hesitates and instead of shooting the kid holds his fire and walks away. What would you have done? Let the kid go knowing full well that he could... will have the opportunity to kill you or one of your compatriots later; or let a few 3 round bursts into the back of his head?

I don't think I could waste a kid. Even if he was trying to waste me. Although that's something I hopefully will never have to make a quick decision on.

As morally repugnant as it sounds...a combatant is a combatant...I would have to shoot.

Anyone holding a gun on or at me is a freaking TARGET!

ive seen the same thing here, in fact i'd swear it's by the same posters, same wording, same responses. but i'm sure it's nothing to worry about, the "random controversial topic generator" just needs a little tuning. btw, kill him.

dirt nap for the kid

Someone pointing a gun at me with intent to kill isn't a kid, a man, or a woman. It's a hot lead depository. [uzi]

He would still be dead today. He would stay dead. He would always be dead. Dead, dead, dead.....

Ideally I would like to think that I would have spared the child's life. In reality I would have $hit myself!

I would tell him he's hurting my feelings and that he's about to get a time out. Then it's hug and forgiveness time. Either that or empty a mag into him.

I wouldn't shoot him........ I'd BUTTSTROKE him! Ammo is a commodity in a firefight!
