A most excellent link, Dr. Lott. Having had my fun with full auto weapons in the past, it never ceases to amaze me at what lengths Holywood will go to over portray weapons usage in films.

My favorite foulup was discharging an M-16 A1 from inside a M135 series vehicle (deuce and a half) from inside the cab. Needless to say, the results did not match Hollywood drivebys! The joys of burning brass were sucktacular at the very least... Not to mention very loud too!
