As always, when you miss and that damn dog gets the last laugh.

Oops! That would suck if she lost her job all because she forgot to take the gun out. Or worse, someone else put it there. At least the two charges they gave her were reasonable, not any “terrorist” crap.
If the charges she received were both misdemeanors, how come she still was taken to jail?
Not like I didn’t do it anyway, rather than selling the books back to the university bookstore for a ridiculously low amount.
Sounds like an awesome way to introduce new shooters to the wonderful world of guns, and start the summer off with a bang.
Pretty sweet that the $20 fee includes the use of the firearms, hearing protection, eye protection, and NRA certified instructors. I wonder if you bring your own ammo, or if they have it for sale there?
The Ohio University 2nd Amendment Club has a crude website set up if you are doubting their existence. The book shoot is announced on the events page.
Pretty funny counter poster with Levar Burton.
While mounting the M2 machine gun onto the turret system of his MATV during pre-combat checks, this soldier experienced difficulty inserting the locking pin on the MOD 93 machine gun mount. The soldier then attempted to force the locking pin into place with a rock. After this failed, he then secured a loose .50 cal. round, using it to hammer at the locking pin, attempting to force the locking pin into place. After several hits with the .50 cal. round, the primer activated, setting the round off in the soldier’s hand. Extensive injuries were suffered to his right hand, middle, ring and pinky finger.

*Warning Very Graphic*
It’s really unfortunate when Darwin comes for soldiers… but hitting a live round? COME ON.. how does he think his machine gun fires? This incident would have been a bit more understandable if it occurred in the heat of combat, but the memo specifically states the soldier was mounting the M2 onto the turret, pre-combat.
On the bright side, I guess he get a ticket out of Trashcanistan.
