Guy was surprised that SAW is just being sprayed. My point is that MOST bullets fired are suppressing fire, and a great many in Vietnam weren’t even targeted suppressing fire. Training has come a long, long way in 50 years, but it’s still instinctive to scare the enemy away.

Comparing apples and oranges can give you vague results, and when those results are 36,000:1 then there is something more going on than simply: USMC snipers always moved after shooting and therefore never used suppressing fire. Grossman’s thesis was: most people hate killing, and even if training had improved since the Battle of the Bulge, where only about 18% of the men fired their weapons in frontline combat units, In Vietnam 99% or more of the men fired, but many, many fewer than that fired directly at enemy soldiers. Spraying a SAW fits that idea.
