Warning Spoiler Alert:






His Glock jammed? Murphy's Law reared it's ugly head for sure.
"called the fight the most difficult of his military career" I would guess that is an understatement
A claw hammer? Finished them off with a claw hammer. Damn..........

In a previous life, I was told “There’s a lot of people (specific groups) in the world you don’t want to F... with.” 
The Russians were at the very top of the list.
Obviously SAS would be right up there with them.

(But if he had a P226, I’d bet it would have been a much shorter fight :)  )

I imagine he would have been a little traumatized and couldnt talk after killing 3 people with a claw hammer.
That would be a pretty ugly scene.

If Im going down a hole after someone, Im taking a .45,,, or I aint a goin.  :th_thicon_funny:

While Ive carried a 9mm for 30 years 95% of the time, I would have to rely on accuracy and shot placement. The truth is, 9mm does not have very good 1st shot incapacitation capability. And probably wouldnt be the best caliber for a fight  in a dark cave.

Where as the .45 is like gittin hit with a dump truck and makes a BIG hole. .

To compound the problem severely, the taliban, and insurgent fighters in Afghanistan in general, were very well know to be hopped up on dope and even took adrenaline.
Even when hit several times, they would keep fighting until they literally collapsed and bled out.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

...

While a .45 could help, I'd rather have one of these:



Or an M2A1:


Or a MOAB:

The flamethrower guy is one job I would not have wanted in the army.

Those tanks get hit and you are done.

TXAZ,,,

Im thinking Idda booby trapped the entrance, backed off , watched the entrance for any turkey peeking,, and called for a JDAM penetrator strike. And hope the shock wave concussion and over pressure  killed them.

Check out the big stream of smoke & dust shooting up like a chimney @ 11 o clock.
Anyone in that tunnel is dead.

All I meant was, a flamethrower is not something I would have wanted strapped to my back in combat.
It's a big target and highly flammable.
