How come anyone needing help in L.A could find the A-Team but the entire military couldn't?

Magic Mini 14s!

You don't find the A-Team. They find [i]you[/i].

Elementary. [):)] The A-Team found the people looking for them. The military was looking for the A-Team, so the A-Team stayed out of site. When a client that needed help got the word on the street they needed the A-Team, this was usually done by going to a certain Chinese restaurant, then the A-Team would survey the prospective client to make sure they weren't really the military and "contact" them. Remember Hannibal always dressing up as one thing or another? And while I'm on it. The Mini-14's(AC-556) aren't bad rifles that can't hit sh1t, the A-Team was just never trying to kill anyone so they missed intentionally. The were so good, that they didn't need to kill anyone. Notice: Whenever they wanted to shoot a tire out of a vehicle the did. [:)]

In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem. If no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: THE A-TEAM. The entire military was not after them but a few MP's. Decker appeared by far the most. WHO WERE THE MILITARY POLICE (MP) "BAD GUYS"? COLONEL LYNCH (played by William Lucking) Was in charge of Fort Bragg when TAT first escaped in '72 and has been searching for them ever since (at least until the episode "The Only Church in Town" - the last time he is mentioned being in pursuit of the Team, although his last on-screen appearance until later on would be the 1st season finale "A Nice Place to Visit.") COLONEL RODERICK DECKER (played by Lance LeGault) First appeared in the second season episode "When You Comin' Back Range Rider?" Supposedly carried a grudge against the Team - especially Smith - since Vietnam. Would be the primary MP "Bad Guy" until the episode "Mind Games" in the 4th season, although Colonel Lynch was given a second chance in the 3rd season episode "Showdown!" and Colonel Briggs was introduced in the 3rd season episode "Fire!" CAPTAIN CRANE (played by Carl Franklin) Colonel Decker's ever-present, trusty side-kick. COLONEL BRIGGS (played by Charles Napier) Only appeared in one episode, "Fire!" before mysteriously disappearing as mysteriously as he was introduced. No idea about what happened there, unless the producers were just trying out someone new and realized after only one episode that the character didn't work. GENERAL HARLAN "BULL" FULBRIGHT (played by Jack Ging) Would be the primary bad guy for the fourth season, starting with "Mind Games." Claimed to have been good friends with Samuel/Steve Morrison, the Team's CO ("Sound of Thunder"). Had an Amer-asian daughter in Vietnam, named Tia, that he did not know about until he hired the Team to track her down ("Sound of Thunder" again.) He was killed during this mission, after saving his daughter, and not before changing his mind about the Team's guilt. GENERAL HUNT STOCKWELL (played by Robert Vaughn) A bit of a mystery man, Stockwell in effect "tricked" the Team into working for him - after setting them up to go on trial for the Hanoi bank job and Morrison's Murder - in exchange for a pardon. He wasn't exactly government or CIA, claiming to work "inside" the system. In one episode ("The Say UNCLE Affair") it was revealed he had a past associate named Ivan (played, of course, by David McCallum), showing that his history in shady business went way back. In a side note, there is an actual John STOCKWELL, who (as of 1987 at least) was the highest-ranking CIA official ever to leave the agency and go public. He wrote a book on his experiences called "In Search of Enemies." I have no idea if there is any connection between this man and the character Hunt Stockwell, but I thought it was worth mentioning. CARLA (Last name unknown) (played by Judith Ledford) Stockwell's ever-present associate and assistant. What their relationship is and anything more than her first name remains a mystery to this day. Generally not given much to do beyond saying, "Here are the files, sir."

Because if it was any other way the show would have lasted exactly 1 episode. [:)] -FOTBR

Guess the bad guys that were shooting back at the A-Team were intentionally missing too. [:D] Also, did ya notice how the bad guys usually had M16s? Everyone knows bad guys shoot AK-47s. How come the A-Team couldn't afford some decent rifles?

Nah, the badbuys were just lousy shots. [;)] The bad guys stole them from National Guard armories. Bill Ruger gave the rifles(and 30 round mags) to the A-Team as a gift. Really he just wanted national publicity. News headline "The wanted A-Team thrwats badguys with illegal 55.6 cal. Ruger Mini-14 revolver" [:D]
