And after a few thousand rounds with no ear plugs you wouldn't be able hear a ping if it jumped and bit you, along with tank motors, artillery, grenades, mortars, My Uncle said that you had to yell at the guy in the same foxhole just to get his attention. No ping intended Added: GI's being GI's, they never waited until the last minute to recharge their weapon, if they were down two or three rounds they would eject what rounds they had and insert a new enbloc. If they were short of ammo they would pick up the loose rounds and load a enbloc later, While resting, they never had a low or empty rifle. They always kept it fully topped off. I would guess the opposite side did the same
