Previously: “Get behind the couch, and be ready to run out the door, if I give the word.”
“But, Jay,” Hiram objected, “You’re outnumbered.”
“Aw, heck no—there are eight more of us outside—only facing twelve of them—we got them outnumbered.”
“Jay, there are twenty more playing paintball just a little way away—except they’re not using paintball weapons—they’re using real weapons.”
“We know. NCIS and other ‘paintball players’ are opposing them—with real weapons.”
“Ten, or less.”
KIDNAPPED—Episode 12—Scene 3… Paintball playground… Although outnumbered by at least three to one, by the militiamen (and a woman or two), the paintball militia and NCIS agents were armed with real firearms.
Would it be enough?
Season 13—Adventure 6—KIDNAPPED—Episode 13—Conclusion—Scene 1… Paintball Playground… Although they outnumbered their adversaries by at least three to one, the self-styled Danger Bay Militia were failed soldier wannabes—they knew little of tactical strategies and began to fire from their original line of battle.
Danger Bay Militia were failed soldier wannabes
On the other hand—all the NCIS folks and the Paint-Ball Militia members had either active-duty military experience or intensive tactical training.
Without specific orders, three on each flank moved to engage the left and right flanks of the Danger Bay Militia, and the center of the NCIS/Paintball Militia dropped into the prone position and began firing into the DB Militia line.
It was over in minutes—the Danger Bay Militia line was decimated.
Only three were unhurt. Seven were dead, and the rest wounded.
Unfortunately, one NCIS agent, and two of the Paintball Militiamen were badly wounded.
KIDNAPPED—Episode 13—Conclusion—Scene 2…Inside the cabin… “Get ready to go out the door!” Jay Cooper ordered and the Silverthorns prepared to go out the back door and into the forest.
“Get ready to go out the door!”
Jay engaged the four Danger Bay Militiamen who, as he expected, retreated from the battle outside the cabin, and ran through the cabin door.
An expert with the machine-pistol (he’d practiced), he disabled all four, grabbed their weapons and grinned, “Surprise! You fellas just stay-put, now—hear?”
The Silverthorns never left the cabin—things happened too fast, “Hiram and I will each borrow a weapon,” Kiwi said as Hiram picked up two assault rifles, “You may need the help if any more decide to join us.”
Hiram moved to Jay’s side, “Kiwi—cover the back, I’ll back-up Jay covering the front!”
Sure enough—three more of the Danger Bay Militia came up on the porch—but never made it to the door—former Mud-Marine Hiram Silverthorn sent the both on a one-way trip to the Promised Land—in their case—it wasn’t what they were expecting.
KIDNAPPED—Episode 13—Conclusion—Scene 2…outside the cabin…
The outnumbered Rootin’ Tootinist Posse engaged the Militiamen—who were simply no match for the very-experienced frontier law-enforcement professionals.
The battle was over in seconds.
The battle was over in seconds
They managed to get-off three rounds before all were on the ground—dead or wishing they were.
Thus ends this ADVENTURE, But our STORY? To be CONTINUED…
