I know this has been discussed before, but i was just curious to hear peoples feelings on this one.
Say i have 2 marines (sergeant and normal). In shooting my two hansom young guys gets a little too much attention, and is lucky enough to get hit by 3 lascannons and 2 bolters. I now allocate all 3 lc shots to the normal guy and the 2 bolters to my sarge. He passes his saves.
My opponent just made 3 quite nasty shots! But unfortunately all his guys were aiming at the same man (who happens to be the not-so-dangerous looking guy instead of the one with the powerfist and no helmet).
Anyone catch my drift? (or did i miss something in the rules?)

I believe that the result you describe is a legally correct but not by the ‘all his guys were aiming at the same man.’
See page 25 in the BRB for wound allocation and how it is done.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Actually the rather unfortunate part for your friend, he could have taken out both and you wouldn't have had the chance to allocate all the lascannons to just the regular guy.
As I'm guessing that the lascannons were not all the same unit firing. If this is the case then read on, if not then you are correct.
If all 3 lascannons were separate units, they would have shot individually. The shooting sequence consists of One of your units shooting and then completing that units shooting. The last step is remove casualties. Then you would pick another unit and repeat. As such, 2 (individual) lascannons would have taken out both models and destroyed the unit.
I guess this is a good reason for everyone to spread their weaponry amongst as many units as possible.

So in order to ensure that you kill more enemies, you put less bullets into them. Sometimes this game makes me facepalm.
