Some I knew but there were several I didn't. Good easy read.

Thanks Alte.  Returning fire and moving reduces your chance of being shot by ~1/2 was surprising.  I figured it was much higher than that, like 75-90% reduction in chance of being shot. . (And gives credence to Boomer’s 600 yard rule :)  )

If you do "cop rolls" (rolling on the ground and then popping up to return fire - like Crockett on Miami Vice), then you cannot begin at all  :th_thicon_lol:
