my dad fired a BAR in basic back in 66. it seemed to pull away when firing. not kicking back. he would fire a burst then have to pull it back into his shoulder then fire another. for whatever reason they did shoot it during basic training but did not carry them in nam. heck they even fired the 3.5" and 5" rocket launchers. they carried the m14 for a short time then carried the m16. but they didn't give anyone in the recon patrol an m203 grenade launcher for the m16. they had to use the m79. the pointman carried an m14 with a WP grenade on the muzzle ready for marking a target. but the army had the m203. as far as the BREN didn't fire that.
