Dang! I had one of those shirts and seemed to have lost it in a move. Love seeing it again! Sadly, I’m only a L in size. Badass shirt.

Like with bayonets, tumbling bullets or true flying bullets?

In other words, any aeration would do? lol.

Thank you kind sir.

Yes, any aeration would do. In my head it happens to be with punching 7.62mm entrance holes into them with some dirty, poohie FAL, AK, or G3. Exit holes may vary. But if you prefer wet work, bayos, blades, or rocks would work too.

"No to the end of the war (and peaceful settlement), lets kill terrorists." I googled that term a while back and after searching found that translation from a guy online from South Africa . I also heard it meant shooting the hoards of head bobbing Africans wearing floppy hats . I don’t know.

I was told floppies was used in reference to the flop, flop, flop sound when they ran in sandals.
Ive no idea about the 'slot' part,,, my uncle always said 'swatting' floppies...

I believe it is swat the floppies. At least that is what the SA that is sorting out a machine for us said it was.

“Slot floppies” means punching their tickets, shooting holes into them. Floppies comes from the terrorists wearing sandals / flip flops, making that flopping sound.

“Settlemunt my arse” means that the owner did not believe in trying to reach a settlement with the terrorists, but rather believed in “slotting floppies”, punching holes into them with 7.62mm and other calibers as needed.
