*Being Ex Military, the original Rambo Movie just drives me CRAZY. The part
where he rams a Fiberglass LAW ( Rocket Launcher ) Through a Plexiglas
Helicopter Bubble and you hear Glass Break. Rambo, then fires the weapon
from the Pilots Seat and doesn't Kill any of the Rescued POW's in the back
of the Chopper. This even though we were taught that the Back Blast from
that weapon is Deadly for several Meters behind the weapon. But, the really
good one for me was The A Team. They must have fired several thousand
rounds of ammo in each episode but, nobody ever got shot. hi .. hi ..*
