Leckie's ambush

Seems to me there is a time and place for everything. It is better to have and not need than to need and not have. When Bob ambushed the Japanese patrol coming up his back trail they (The enemy) were at close range and enfiladed on a narrow trail. An extended burst of high volume fire was just the thing that was needed in that situation. That was in the jungles of Guadalcanal in 1943 with a Thompson. I am sure that the same scenario could be (and probably has been) repeated in a dusty alley in Iraq or a narrow mountain trail in Afghanistan with an M-4.
