Scandanavian Gay Army Shoots The "M16A2"

Gay Army was a Scandanavian TV show that aired in 2006. It was a reality show featuring 9 effeminate gay men who were instructed by a US drill sergeant.

Here is a clip from when they introduced the “M16A2” to the recruits. One of the recruits has an emotional break down when confronted with the gun.

Besides the over-the-top reaction, I have my doubts about the drill instructor. His description of the weapon is almost as bad as the recruit’s reaction. The drill instructor calls the weapon an M16A2, when it is an M4. He then says it is can take down the enemy with one shot, where the red dot is aiming is where it is killing. I suppose he is making it easy for them to understand simple basics of the rifle. However, point of aim and point of impact are not the same at all distances. Also, the effectiveness of 5.56 is debatable.

    It can take down an enemy with one shot? Well DUH. A .22 long rifle can take a person down with one shot. It's not, WHAT you hit them with. It's WHERE you hit them. Zip a 5.56 thru someones brain bucket at any practical range and it's LIGHTS OUT. The trick is to put the bullet where it needs to go.

    Have seen this video long ago. Before I read your write-up, I was going to say, "The only thing gayer than the 'recruit' shooting is the 'drill instructor' talking about the rifle." I see you thoroughly covered my sentiment to a T.
