46. maybe there is a reason he was at the show and not busting criminals

you wouldnt think a US Army SOLDIER would do that either, but they do, all the time. Think of them as "amateur"?


but seriously, unless you have personally, and extensively trained with somebody, you need to be skeptical - __really__ skeptical - of them if they have a gun - which are always potentially loaded, right? - in their hands.

I spent 16 months in Iraq. with the same soldiers. the same squad. Some of them I would never stand in front of.


to get back to the amateur hour at this gun show... they dont have clearing barrels? why was the bullet able to ricochet and/or hit two people? was he pointing it at them? Dont laugh, that happens a lot. It also means to cop pulled the trigger before clearing the weapon. Clearing means dropping the magazine. working the action 2 or more times. VISUALLY INSPECTING THE CHAMBER. Work the action again. Then in the Army we squeeze the trigger to release the springs.


Im not a police officer. But when it comes to handling firearms, you better believe Im a professional. If you arent, people die.
