I was testing the outer zone security system on a minuteman icbm site (the capsule jocks had been getting a lot of false alarms) and part of the testing necessitated grabbing hold of the fence around the site and shaking it back and forth vigorously to simulate wind moving the fence around and possibly triggering the system. It was hot and I had stripped off my uniform and put on a pair of shorts... our guards (AF security police) had, unbeknownst to me, fallen asleep in the truck on the other side of the site and so missed the last couple of security check-ins with the launch control facility. Up pulls an armed response team in a "peacekeeper" armored truck to the sight of some sweaty guy shaking the fence like a mad man and the guards sprawled out in the truck. Airman first class ******* pops up out of the turret with his M60, points it at me, and racks the charging handle... *eep* Fortunately it didn't go bang but I did end up laying in the dirt for awhile until they figured out our guards weren't actually dead.
Another incident, we are waiting off site for the security system to reset so we can leave and one of the guards in the back seat pulls out a mag and pops out a 5.56 round. He proceeds to wiggle and twist and pull on the bullet until he gets it out of the casing... at which point I realize what he's doing and say, ***? He's like, "watch man this is cool" and dumps the powder out of the case onto the top of the front seat between me and my assistant. He then lights the gunpowder with his lighter... little *whoosh* and he laughs like an idiot. I'm thinking, "this dude is screwed when he goes to turn in his ammo" and then he pushes the bullet back into the case AND PUTS THE BULLET BACK IN HIS MAG. I reported his ass when we got back to base and they had to take out of service every single round this guy had ever touched.
