simunition just uses a replacement upper receiver, it uses low power 9mm cartridges. Yes it hurts. Yes its messy.
its a pain in the behind to use, like every 15th shot will pop in the receiver, making an awesome mess. I've fired so many Sim rounds i couldn't count.
The Marine in that video doesn't have a Sim receiver on his m16, but he does have a mask on, so its likely one side has Sim rounds, the other side is acting (pretending). And Sim rounds are very common in the infantry for obvious reasons. Non combat units don't usually need to train at that level.
The only piece of protection we have on that special area is a thin flap of kevlar that attaches to our Interceptor vest, which by the looks of it he isn't wearing, so that's his fault.
Btw, I was Marine infantry, deployed three times, so I should knowEdited by SMK - 10/21/11 at 1:23pm
