          You are exactly right. That kind of thinking will get you killed.

                Probably because staying in one spot for too long will get you killed.

                It sounds like the classic "run and gun" battle.

                BTW, any body know what a AR 181 assault rifle is ?

                  Yeah, it's the model between the AR-180 and the AR-182......Sorry, couldn't resist.

                  Seriously, though, if I remember right, it is the 7.62 version of the Armalite model 180. I think.
