You are a building contractor, truck driver, company representative, etc. traveling with your security personnel in a hostile region. Your group is suddenly ambushed and a fire-fight breaks out as an explosive device destroys the lead vehicle, seriously wounding the occupants and blocking the road with the burning vehicle.

Your security personnel are seriously wounded, only one can return fire and he is some distance away on the other side of the road. Your buddy has been shot in the chest and is struggling for breath, he is bleeding heavily. The attackers are moving in for the kill or even worse, to take you hostage. Your bodyguard shouts to you to grab a rifle and return fire to avoid you all being killed.

The assault rifle you lift up has an optical sight but it is broken and hanging off, the magazine is damaged but you see a couple of full ones lying beside an unconscious security guard.

As you look around in bewilderment, fear and shock trying to take it all in an armed attacker breaks cover from behind a rock runs directly towards you, his AK47 at the ready. The one guard returning fire is engaging the remaining attackers and cannot help you………..

Now what do you do, what can you do………?
