From a random exchange with a guy Down Undah:

Aussie, eh?
I was through Melbourne in 1998, I guess it was, on the way home from the Persian Gulf. A young girl had committed an act of Hooverism on the President, so we had to shoot Tomahawk missiles into Afghanistan. Subsequently, the world went mad.

    Well, also apropos nothing, I won’t say why I was there, but the AR-15 forum has 9043 users currently online.

    To them, I say “breath in, breath out, move on”.

    A lot of those guys, being former M-16 luggers, are more in the, “I ain’t movin’ nowhere,” state of mind.

    I thought it was “breathe in, breathe out, fire”.

    Yes. That’s the proper sequence. But, you squeeze the trigger. Don’t grab it.
