Actually, if you want to kill an approaching enemy soldier, Bee-dub, you don't shoot at his ass (which will not be visible anyway), but at his chest, stomach or head. Ass shots are generally received only by soldiers who are in full retreat...or by pilots in airplanes. Therefore, I object to your use of the phrase "get his ass shot off". It is unrealistic. So there.

(I hate these stupid modern American phrases...)

Being "on point" is definitely the most dangerous place to be, no doubt about that, but it will not get your ass shot off, it will just get you killed. Of course, once you're dead, does it really matter whether your ass is still attached or not?
