It's only suicide if you die .....


I know but I think I worded it correctly- been practicing hitting a moving target with my Tanaka. :tongue:

Touché

Played as a German for 4 hours at the bloody gulch, 9 M1 carbine kills at 40 metres +, i think 4 of which were Helmet hits when they were peeking over the top! hehe

There is nowt more satsifying than the 'dink' you get when you get a helmet shot using a rifle at long range. 8) Other than perhaps when they yelp. :rofl:

never seem to get the 'dink' with German helmets though, the sound it makes when it hits a US helmet is *very* distinctive

Yes german helmets don't work as well, especially if they have a cover on. Brit para helmets are the best -they're nice and noisy and keep ringing so I'm told. :lol:

They definitely won't have a "ring" to them, although you will still hear the hit.

Tommy helmets are the best.

Twice now I've been shot on mine and heard a sssshinnnng sound as the bb seemed to roll around the outside of the helmet. I'm not sure how that's possible or if it was even real, but that's what it sounded like!

If a head is all I can see thats what I'll shoot. I will try to avoid it if the person isn't wearing a helmet though. If i can take a body shot I will since it makes more sense to go centre mass anyway.

Because of the nature of Taffy's site, head's peering over the top of bushes/mounds were mostly all you could see anyway.

Yes, the same with alot of sites; particularly in summer with high ground cover. Yet another reason to recommend wearing a helmet.

Indeed they do, and they're far more distinctive than a cap.

All rank insignia must either be removed or approved by an organiser


Just noticed this. Does it apply for the German senior EM ranks (Gefreiter / Obergefreiter - similar to PFC)?
