    Glock?
    Aren't Glocks issued only to some of the SF units? (Sayeretes)
    Sidearms as a whole is something that the IDF doesn't put its trust in.
    Even officers have been receiving less and less of them in recent years.

    Not really. I was looking to call you what you are. That's it.

    And with this post, I take my leave from this thread. I see no profit in remaining. It's been a long slosh. Hmm. Somewhere around 300 posts ago, I mentioned that this thread has been very illuminating. Indeed. It certainly lived up to its promise.

    Nothing will become resolved here, but perhaps this buffet offered each of us some exotic food for thought along the way. Oftentimes the journey itself is more memorable than the destination. Although we may disagree on some items, I do thank everyone for being open and honest.

    Average this average that.
    Nobody is speaking about percents here - you've walked into the wrong thread, perhaps?

    You're thinking a female should go into Combat against a male? You have the floor A/P. State your case.

    There wouldn't be 68 pages in this thread if nobody here had thought that females should serve in combat units.
    I'm sure you'll find a lot of cases if you'll search the thread.

    As for my case, I see no problem with females serving in the combat units that are not sent to the battlefield for more than a few hours.
    I agree that a female(any female) would have a harder time than a male if she is to be issued to the battlefield as an invading/occupying force, and had to survive the battlefield for days, weeks, or even months.

    There is no wrong, however, with sending them into units that are engaged in quick operations/assaults to take down terrorists, gather information, etc.

    68 pages of bantering back and forth over females in a Combat Zone only proves there's a lot of individuals (male and female) that's NEVER been shot at. Or,,,thought about the concept of the average female being thrown into a Combat Zone... Be honest...
