Why do all of the soldiers have tape on there buttstocks? Keving67

SWAG - to keep them together if they shatter - particularly if dropped while exiting the helos??

You'll notice that the slings they were using were the regular slings attached to the top of the rifle with 550 cord as a 'tac sling'. I believe the ordnance tape was used to help attach the rear of the sling.

I'm with Hop- it looked like they had there slings taped into position for a 'tac sling' set-up.

I seem to remember the lion chasing scene in the beginning was quite a bit longer at the theater.

THANK YOU!! I wondered what the hell they were eating. (Sure didn't look lion-y to me when they were flying over. My eyes are getting worse, though...) Scott

It wasn't lion, it was boar. Boar as in wild hog.

Is the DVD version shorter than the theatre version? I went to see it the first nite. Is it me, or were certain scenes longer at the theatre, than are on this DVD. Have only watched 1/2 of the DVD so far. M4-AK

Maybe it just seemed to be shorter because I already knew what to expect, but I agree that there are some scenes that seemed to be over faster on the DVD. When I watched it in the theatre I thought they'd never finish the scene where they are trying to clamp the femoral artery.

What wasn't a lion?

It was a wild pig. They talked about Delta doing stuff like that in the book as well. I saw the movie 4 times in the theater... it seems the same length on DVD to me. Eric/Tyler

Whatever it was, it looked strange for some reason when they flew over it.... Scott

I believe this is the animal they had for dinner, the wart hog. http://www.dinofish.com/wmgallery/pages/wart%20hog.htm
