Gunner’s Mate Keith McGinley prepares singer/actress Jessica Simpson for a .50-caliber gun shoot during a USO and Navy Entertainment sponsored visit aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75).

Hopefully some pirates got in the way of her shooting. I’m glad to see she is still supporting our troops and doing the USO thing.

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.

It’s really unfortunate when Darwin comes for soldiers… but hitting a live round?

On the bright side, I guess he get a ticket out of Trashcanistan.


If one LEGO gun can almost get a kid suspended.  That same principal would be fighting for the death penalty for a kid that brings this to school:

I count 5 mini guns alone!  Those mounted black squared off guns are likely supposed to be Browning M2 (Ma Deuce) machine guns, I see 2 of those.

The LEGO zombies don’t stand a chance!

Amazon doesn’t have the whole set, but they do have these LEGO zombie town folk.
