Whoa!

I sure as hell would want someone swinging the muzzle around PAST ME! God I hope those drums are empty.

Otherwise, neat videos!

Thanks!

Sgt,
I'll allways remember an older gentelman sitting at the firing bench to my right
with an old .45-70 Springfield across his knee, pointed right at my noggin!
He proceeded to swing it down range, and while doing so, it discharged at about
a 40 degree angle, sending that big ass slug way over the dirt-backstop and towards
the Long Island Expressway!! sad.gif
Needless to say, I packed up quick and lived to tell about it! laugh.gif
Best, Z
