    Target practice

    I'm currently in Afghanistan and the XO sent out the following e-mail today.

    "We have weapons ranges and SOPs in order to keep everyone safe. There is to be NO TARGET PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF THE RANGES. This includes but is not limited to Firearms, Archery, Crossbow, BB Gun, Pellet gun, Air Rifle, Slingshot, Trebuchet and any other weapons."

    A Trebuchet..... Really!?!?

    Some GI with too much time and scrape wood on his hands? Somewhere in Afghanistan a soldier launched a rock where he shouldn't have!

    Are you allowed to throw the 'evil eye' at someone?

    My grandfather always said that a bored soldier/marine/sailor was a truly dangerous situation waiting to happen - usually in front of a crowd of his buddies!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
