    let one have it = to hit hard

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    Don’t let him pull you in – but – if the son-of-bitch socks you – let him have it.

    He drew back his fist and let the man have it.

    Give him a kick in the pants; let him have it!

    let one have it = to hit hard

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
