If you're crazy enough to use miniguns (4 hits per "pull") or full auto rifles (3 hits per "pull") the 18 hits can come in as little as 6 pulls of the trigger (fire*3 - fire*3 - fire*3 - swap - fire*3 - fire *3 - fire *3), which is a lot shorter than 10 seconds...
It is true that using rapidfire guns is the worst case scenario when handling Borg. High DPV (damage per volley) weapons like a sniper rifle or pulsewave can usually kill them in 1-3 shots total. Keep in mind you can always melee them to expose the target and/or buy time. Anyone with a melee weapon (batleth, lirpa, etc.) can use that ad nauseum without a remodulator as well.
Unfortunately the people who need to know this the most are usually the ones who visit the forums the least.
