There was a smattering of "asses and elbows" -
people immediately fleeing the scene
(which is normally wisdom acquired only through sad experience).
But more guys froze, crouched and pivoted,
then moved towards the action,
with their head on a swivel.
It was an unorganized mess before the ND -
looked more like a Renaissance Fair than a muster -
but some of those NFAC may be trained on counter-ambush tactics.
