I have read that some units use light and/ore lasers for aiming, and some times the weapon is held in the armpit and not in the shoulder. Is this true? The use of lasers for AIMING in the real world of combat is restricted to lasing a target. Our M4's will have mounted on them an AN/PEQ 2 Laser des...

Here is the thing guys. I think this is an great way to train, but I doubt I will be giving my two cents worth. I don't mind discussing individual tactics, and to an extent two man team tactics.
