    What do you do if you are an American Army officer, and you awaken to find Pancho Villa attacking your camp on American soil?

    Why, you run out in your underwear, grab one of those new-fangled machine gun contraptions, and go to work on shooting Mexican raiders on full auto. No time to get dressed properly or put on boots. And this new gun sure beats the Gatling Gun it replaced . . .

    You ask him if he'd like a voter registration card? :lol:

    That Benét-Mercié reminds me of the Browning Automatic Rifle (which runs far better!).
