Some excerpts:

A armed man with an IDPA logo on his vest, most likely an Israeli special forces instructor, is being helped by two armed visitors.

A soldier with British SAS, who was in the shopping center at the time of the terrorist attack. By some accounts he went back to the captured building 12 times, getting the total of about 100 people out. His name was not released.

This is awesome.

+1 for good guys having guns. Too bad if that ever happened here Californian Liberals would rather be hostages than be freed by armed American good guys.

Had the pleasure of meetong some SAS mwmbers here in Hong Kong. They are all very squared away. Wouldn't want to be on their target list.

I impressed then with my Cal-OC quick-load draw-fire... While half drunk and with an unfamiliar pistol. Their jaws dropped.

Before you get to silly, it was an airsoft XDM.
