    My skin is not that thin, so no it's not too blunt. Actually, I do thank you for your opinion and comment.

    I posted my "oops" moment on the Marlin Owners board. I didn't figure I'd catch a lot of crap over it based on how well mannered those guys are.
    Well, I was right, NOT 1 single flame. Just LOTS of kudos for being man enough to admit to a mistake and lots of thank yous for the reminder to be safe.
    Some guys even admitted to things they had done, but were too scared at the time to admit it.
    I'd post the link to my thread, but I don't know how (computer illiteracy).
    But I can get you there this way. marlinowners.com. 336 forum, thread is confession feeling guilty

    Many moons ago, we were on a training exercise in the woods. All our weapons were loaded with blanks. It was my turn to haul the "pig" (M60 machine gun) around. I had hardly received any training on it...

    We settled into our defensive position. We were all trying to be quiet and "tactical." Muffled conversations, the quiet sound of digging foxholes with e-tools. I set up the M60, loaded in the ammo belt, and then tried to remember which way was "safe" on the safety lever (the markings were worn away decades before). I figured I would lightly pull the trigger, and that would tell me if I guessed right...

    BAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAM! I ripped off a textbook perfect 6-round burst. Needless to say, our noise discipline was pretty well gone. We were all pretty tired, and now all eyes were on me - if the platoon leader made us move to a new position, I was going to have a rough time from everyone else. Luckily enough, he allowed us to stay in our position - after giving me a thorough ass-chewing.

    Have not had one since. And I now tend to be super-vigilant with gun safety.

    Been around guns most of my life. And heavily into them scince 1998. And yes I have had the dreaded ND . Lesson learned to always check and recheck your weapon. Stay safe everyone.

    Wow. That was really rude and uncalled for. Let's try to remember this is not a school yard.

    That is probably for the best. Those attitudes bring out the worse in the entire forum.
