Weapons that will put you in the "Hurt Locker"

WeaponsthatwillputyouinthequotHurtLockerquot Photo Everyone knows the "Hurt Locker" won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Picture. What does the term "Hurt Locker" mean? The term or phrase "Hurt Locker" dates back to the Vietnam War. It was one of several phrases that referred to a U.S. or allied soldier being injured in an explosion, or being in trouble or at a disadvantage. Battlefield logistical "Snafus" often put soldiers in the "Hurt Locker", or in "A World of Hurt". Snafu is a military acronym from W.W.II that means "Situation Normal All F----d Up". In declared wars, police actions, insurgencies, revolutions, or even riots some weapons are specifically made to put people in "The Hurt Locker". The objective is to maim, injure, or disable because this requires others to assist their fallen comrade. It also takes timing away in reaching their objective. Rubber bullets are one example. Riot police don't want to kill protesters or looters, just disable or injure so they can be arrested. This quiz deals with military and unconventional methods used for that purpose.
