Learn your weapons before writing about them Jack Tame

Jack Tame has an article about how cool it is to fire an AK-47. They are cool, but nowhere as near as cool as the M249 light machine gun he is actually holding.

The article goes further and rambles on about assault rifles. Even his caption mentions assault rifles.

The problem is if you are going to write about assault rifles then get some facts straight. ?

No assault rifles are belt fed. The M249 light machine gun he is holding is not an assault rifle. It is a machine gun. There is a massive difference. They also use different rounds.

This is an AK-47 (with some warry bits added):

This is an M249:

If you are going to write about things, please get it right Jack.
