In Dick Marcinko's first book he described how Seal Team Six practiced with handguns using a 3" X 5" index card for a target and all shots had to be kept on the index card and how if you failed you would get every lousy detail he could think up for a long time. He also claimed that Seal Team Six used more small arms ammunition in one year than the entire Untied States Marine Corps. Once the accountants figured out what was going on they were cut off from unlimited ammunition requests. With practice almost anything is possible.

Putting Marchinko in a thread with Schartzenager and fantasy is perfect.

I stopped believing anything he said before chapter two.

If you read the whole thread, it started out that way.

It's over now.
