That is just stupid.
I wonder if the person who thought this 'game' up is a former student of or possibly an instructor at Tactical Response.

Like playing Russian Roulette with a GLOCK. Nobody wins Sorry to hear about this...
Really, really stupid. Hopeless. Who are they letting into the Marines these days? The guys I served with would never ever do anything like this.
Sig 226, 228. Glock 19, 23. Smith Model 60,and 1911. XD45 Tactical. Mossberg 930 SPX.
How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.
Thats the dumbest thing I have ever heard

OK, as if we don't loose enough brave servicemen to IEDs, suicidal Jihadis and motorcycle accidents! This is first class stupid, no trust involved.
that must be one of the most stupid things ive ever read/heard. IMO the shooter should be Dishonorably Discharged after serving time....
Leaving the sheer stupidity of this incident aside for a moment, if one has to "play a game" of life and death with one's team mates to gain their trust, one has some serious character flaws to begin with. Why don't they trust you from the get go after being in battle with you? Something is off.

"Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the **** out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."
Note this is the second time, once in 2007 too. The action seems lacking in professionalism.
