It’s tough. I was in Iraq as a Blackhawk crewchief, doing some missions with the ODA guys. Granted, they’re not Delta, but still pretty high up there. They had a hard time when we were on the range. A lot of it, we just played by ear, such as hanging a cargo strap across the cabin door opening so they could rest their rifles for shooting. They might have been badasses on the ground in Afghanistan (where this particular team was previously) but they couldn’t hit shit from a hovering helicopter. We developed an unspoken tactic where they would shoot the target, or more often near it, I’d see the dust, and obliterate that particular target with the 240. In general, they were good dudes to work with, and were a lot more relaxed about the regulations.

One thing that kinda sucked though, one of them had this funky looking little grenade launcher (not an M79 but smaller, with a shorter barrel and a wire stock. Something Czech made I think they said) that he shot out the left side of the aircraft. Once. Because the effect the rotor wash had on the relatively slow moving, fatter and heavier grenade made it hook an immediate right and move slowly past my left side pilot’s window before falling slowly to the ground. That particular pilot was probably the most calm under pressure guy I’ve ever known but he practically shit himself. He tells them “Do NOT do that again”. Thus ending any grenade fun.
