So we basically just drove into this clearing and there was about 150 of them. But they had like a van with, what do you call them, Dushkas [DShK] in it - you know, the big Russian guns. And they brought it in behind us and they faced up so we couldn't back out, and then kicked the s**t out of us, and took our guns.
