* An often-repeated and likely-apocryphal tale from the Vietnam War involves a US Navy frigate, usually said to be the USS Barbey, patrolling the Gulf of Tonkin off the North Vietnamese coast during the war. NVA shore batteries and patrol boats sometimes attacked US ships near the coast, which invariably resulted in a [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp battle]] at sea but still posed a threat to unwary US warships, so the frigate was on high alert. At some point during the night, the frigate's surface-search radar picks up a large contact closing in on them. Lookouts soon confirm a silhouette in the darkness. The frigate has been ordered to operate under radio silence, so a signal light is used to hail the unidentified ship with Morse Code: "UNIDENTIFIED VESSEL, THIS IS USS BARBEY. IDENTIFY YOURSELF." There is no response. The frigate repeats her message, again no response. Finally, the frigate signals a warning: "UNIDENTIFIED VESSEL, THIS IS USS BARBEY. IDENTIFY YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY OR WE WILL OPEN FIRE." By now, the "scope-dopes" can tell that the radar signature is REALLY big, and the lookouts are saying the same thing. After a pregnant pause, the other ship finally replies: "USS BARBEY, THIS IS [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_New_Jersey_(BB-62) USS NEW JERSEY]]. [[BringIt YOU MAY FIRE WHEN READY]]."
** The smaller ship was actually the USS Bronsten, as USS Barbey was not commissioned until 1972.
** The CO of the Big J must have had a sense of humor to send a reply like that.

* On September 23, 1989, in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, Washington, resident Bill Foulk, a US Army Ranger Staff Sergeant, was having a cookout with several of his friends (also Army Rangers) and their families. He and his party were attacked by local drug dealers in retaliation for Foulk's attempts to organize neighborhood watch and protection programs, which included videotaping of a nearby "crack house". In a gun battle lasting more than 10 minutes, over 300 rounds were reported to have been fired from semiautomatic pistols, rifles, and shotguns; [[ATeamFiring without a single injury resulting on either side]]. Foulk's party was not prosecuted for their participation in the shooting, as city officials deemed it a clear case of self defense. Their commanding officer was less forgiving, however; and ordered them to spend several months of extended time on the firing range for failing to hit their targets.

* On February 24th, 1984, A man named Gary Fadden accidentally cut off a motorcyclist. A while later the man he had offended, a member of the Outlaws motorcycle gang, returned in a pick up truck with 2 more buddies. They chased Mr.Fadden and his fiance more than 22 miles, occasionally firing shots at his vehicle. Not knowing what else to do, Fadden drove to his workplace, where he assumed he would be safe, the US manufacturing plant for international arms manufacturer, Heckler & Koch. The pursuers drove there truck through the gate. Gary got out of his car and retrieved a Ruger AC-556 machine gun that he had been testing earlier that week. The main biker then hopped out and began to charge Mr.Fadden. Gary fired a burst into the air, to which the biker replied "Fuck you and your rifle" and kept coming. Fadden then shot and killed the biker. He was later tried for first degree murder, he was found innocent.

* [[https://www.reddit.com/r/ProRevenge/comments/1w0sav/6th_grade_girl_bullies_get_destroyed/cexnfsr?context=3 This US Marine]] shares a humorous story of the time he and a few of his fellow Marines foolishly got into a snowball fight with Norwegian schoolkids. Protip: even if you are a Marine, if you grew up in Texas or North Carolina you are not as good at snowball fighting as Norwegians.

* Two "tough guys" [[http://www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/1274688/Chuck/ tried to rob]] ChuckNorris with knives, under the assumption that what he did in ''WalkerTexasRanger'' [[RealityIsUnrealistic was all fake]]. The two ended up with arms so broken that bones were sticking out. The police didn't even handcuff them, partly out of concern for the thugs' injuries, and partly because they were laughing too hard to get the cuffs out.
