uh... are you sure about the remington acr ? because i recently contacted remington for some information about the acr and they told me that the acr is not available yet for LE/MIL and is apparently need some refinement.Remmy, looked like a full 16". It had those skele rails so im 95% sure it was remm.
If only that were in one of the first cars on scene. That mess would've been a lot less of a battle.Honestly though, select fire is really only beneficial during ambushes (springing or receiving) or when you have multiple attacking targets ("gooks in the wire") kind of stuff, unless you are suppressing (which is more of an LMG job anyway). Aimed semi is nearly always the way to go.
Even with all the full auto they were spraying, the N. Hollywood baddies were not precise enough to actually kill anyone. One good cop with an AR and a decent optic from an elevated position would have ended that fight with two to four shots...
My terp used this expression one time, and grinning (I'm half Korean) I asked if he knew what that meant. He said, "Yes. It means there are enemies in the wire." I asked if he knew what "Gooks" were. He said it was a word for "Enemy".("gooks in the wire")
