My dad was shot in the leg while training during WWII. When he stopped to put on his gas mask, he planted his foot and raised his leg for leverage and a bullet tore through it. Put him in the hospital for almost a full year because they wanted to save the leg rather than amputate. So although this may seem bad, live fire training was and perhaps, still is in use by our Government.
    When I went through live fire overhead was used as well. But it was way overhead, no where near as close as this exercise.

    If I remember correctly they also had the machine gunner set up so that it was virtually impossible to lower the shots to get close to us as we went through the course, under barbed wire, through mud/sand, ect.

    This is just plain stupid.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I am still laughing.

    First I want to play. I would love to see his liability waiver. "In the event you shoot me during the gauntlet I, or the company will not hold you responsible in anyway, shape or form". Once this was signed it would be game on.

    we always used sim rounds when practicing clearing buildings. that is a much safer way to establish trust. i cant believe that was on the military channel...

    Can they have a redo?

    I'm going to suggest this at my next firm retreat - in lieu of the silly "trust" exercise in which I fall and a co-worker catches me.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I also posed that question several posts up from yours, on the first page.

    I'd like to know, too.
