No ’bout a doubt it: the Israelis are some serious soldiers. You would be too if you had to do military service in a country fighting an endless war against terrorists. Oh wait, that’s us—minus the mandatory military service and constant threat of domestic terrorism. “Thanks” to the Iraqi and ten-year-plus Afghan wars, U.S. soldiers now have the same mad killing skills as the Israelis. One thing we don’t do: the “Israeli method” of racking a slide to chamber a round. In fact, neither do they, anymore, much. So admire it while you can: the grace and pace of a move designed for a time when the Jewish nation state couldn’t afford “proper” guns, which could go off when dropped.
