    Shooting them up close, it shuts dudes down fast. Generally. Further out, it is more barrel length and random chance dependent.

    In the Corps we didnít have that issue with green tip. We we using A4ís though and then went to MK318 SOST which is even better. Green tip is fine out of a 16+ inch barrel
