I think I read somewhere that some SEALs and other "real operator" types can shoot up to 50,000 rounds per year...and that is after they have acquired the skill. It may take that much practice to maintain it.

When you think about it, that is "only" 1000 rounds per week. Either 200 rounds per day for five days a week, or one day and 1000 rounds...not hard to imagine (as long as someone else is paying for the ammo).

And even so, I'm not sure that the first hole in Osama was right between the eyes. So even the guys who should be capable of that "movie-type" shot did not necessarily get it right...I guess that's why they practice double taps...and it sounds as if two guys may have fired at the same time(?)

To actually make a shot like that is pure luck or total BS.

Bottom line...Hollywood is total BS, and hypocritical BS at that. They donate large sums of money to anti-2A candidates, but make money hand-over-fist making ultra-violent movies.

I cut Hollywood out of my habit pattern a long time ago...for a number of reasons. And when I say that, I mean it in every way. I don't watch movies on TV, not on cable, not on NetFlix, not on HuLu, nothing. Last movie I saw was Forrest Gump.

I will likely go to see Dinesh D'Souza's "2016--Obama's America"...but that is not Hollywood BS.

Sorry for the drift into "nobody asked me" land...
