A Kukri in the hand is better than the one at home

In total he fired off 250 general purpose machine gun rounds, 180 SA80 rounds, six phosphorous grenades, six normal grenades, five underslung grenade launcher rounds and one Claymore mine.

The only weapon he did not use was the traditional Kukri knife carried by Gurkhas because he did not have his with him at the time.

A Gurkha Soldier is awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross for killing 30 Taliban fighters using the above instruments of death, as well as a tripod for a machine gun. A Kukri would not only have made a better tool for the slaughter, but would have made a bad-ass story one of legend. The moral of the story is to never leave your killing tools at home.

Found at Ace of Spades.

Excellent story. I just found your site today and also liked the Red Dawn screen captures. I might use some of them in the future if you don't mind.
