Justin, primed for action by Ted's warning, is unsurprised, and snaps into action at the first laser flash. He hits the tongue switch in his helmet for thermal overlay, as he spins, sharpshooter quickdraws his particle beam cannon, and puts several blasts into the heat source nearest where the enemy shots came from . 

OOC: Justin's Sharpshooter trick is to fire accurately while moving. And if nothing else, the 
muzzle of the weapon that fired the shots ought to be warmer than ambient for at least a few

OOC: Justin's reaction may preempt this bit; His reaction turns his back on the British Ninjas, so hopefully they'll treat him as at least not shooting at them, and with any luck, he doesn't get backshot. He's got them mentally tagged as friendlies if not outright allies, so none of his dodges would apply against them at all. He's ignoring the guns aimed in his direction.
