For once, I’m speechless.
Demonstrating the difference between an organized military and an “organized” military.
So the guy doing the shooting gets applauded, no love for the guy holding the pots.
Don’t know which is worse, being shot at, or having to hold those damn pots out with arms outstretched. My arms hurt.
Just another day At Yeager’s.
you ben to my garpa home are you a yeager yeager on moms side gladwin michigan
Yes Andrew, James Yeager is a moron.
Steve wins 12 Internets for his comment win
Guess you guys have never seen this one, eh? Spetnaz Alpha Team confidence drills (Russia – where 30% losses of hostages is considered acceptable)
I just spotted that one the other night kinda left me speechless
inorite? over the top.
The simulated head shoot is what creeped me out
Love the ND at 3:49. Fing commies. Now these clowns are “training” in Ukraine.
That wasn’t an ND. They’re supposed to shoot at the feet of people shoving them. The noise is a good deterrent, and so is a round in the foot. He shot more or less straight down because instructors don’t like it when you ventilate their foot.
TTAG posted this video earlier this year.
Hey, at least he had gloves on for safety.
I got nothing.
He failed this morning’s uniform inspection.
Sometimes you just have to put safety third.
That’s not fair. The rule is ‘Be sure of your target and what’s behind it.’ It doesn’t say anything about who’s under it.
+1 for the Mike Rowe quote!
Wow, that looks like fun! Maybe we’ll try it at the gun club this weekend
…. then again, umm, NO
Well…..maybe if you belong to Club Gitmo!
His mom is going to be pissed that was their good china!
Ruined the china and missed the target every time!
I am assuming he is a prisoner of war and I sure am glad it wasn’t the cameraman doing the shooting.
This is actually an New York Police Department training exercise and all shots were aimed at center mass.
Those guys even screw up a firing squad!
NYPD would have gotten a round over a wall and hit a civilian.
That’s some good shootin”. Wait does that count towards dying in battle? I thought it had to be your enemy to get those 72 virgins?
Try viewing this video from LASD in 1936 and you’ll think that these guys are being safe.
Those newspaper delivery ladies are lucky these guys weren’t the ones shooting all willy nilly at them during the Dorner scare…although I guess these cops didn’t shoot anybody either.
Looks like a Yeager training class to me.
ok I’ll try this again minus the Team America quote. That dude is a horrible shot he missed the terrorist completely. His tactics are all wrong too he didn’t utilize the Iraqi offhand shooting technique (take full size AK or similar with fixed stock or hand gun, run between two buildings firing on full auto or really quickly while looking 180 degrees from where you are firing). /sarc off
Actually this shows the difference between a professional and proficient fighting force and a bush league gaggle of armed idiots (this would be the latter)
Hey, hold my beer–I wanna try too!
the guy sitting on the chair getting shot at drew the short straw on that one…..wow
Allahu Ackbar indeed!
Must be one of those “building trust exercises” we see work places do time to time.
An outwardly healthy and athletic woman I knew had the first and last seizure of her life while she happened to be jogging next to a pond, fell in and drowned.
A person trains to reduce their risk. Taking risks while training doesn’t make sense.
The probability that a person who trains frequently will have an unexpected seizure (or sneeze or have a muscle spasm) while engaged in their frequent activity is probably far greater than that person finding themselves in a situation where they need whatever “skill” doing a stunt like this is supposed to give them. So training like this is actually counterproductive at mitigating their risk. It’s just macho bullsh!t.
Meh. Darwin awaits…..
I’ll bet he’s hoping it isn’t a squib load or the shooter drops a shot.
The glorious Red Army, where 50+% casualties in a chem warfare exercise was considered acceptable.
Guys hand at 1:24?
Good shooting and a target holder with nerves of steel. All consenting adults engaged in voluntary activities.
I am offended at this video. Looks like they made the black guy hold the tea pots.
Never be the last guy to show up for the morning’s training evolution.
Who are they applauding at the end? The shooter, or the shootee?
So, you guys should check out the history surrounding the “Kentucky Riflemen” of the Revolutionary War.
If it weren’t for those [per JAY1087’s definition, not mine] “Bush League Gaggles of Armed Idiots” we might not have that “extra” holiday in July.
These guys are pikers by comparison.
This William Tell stuff doesn’t bother me. You’ve all seen knife throwing acts, with the person strapped to the spinning target – Right? Sure, it’s more dangerous than most people would go in for, but then so is jumping 14 Greyhound buses on a Harley Davidson or skydiving from outer space. There will always be people who go in for that sort of thing, and I say to them, “Yes, Bubba, I will hold your beer.”
Displays like this are generally a symptom of cultures where life is still viewed as cheap. They have the trappings of development, but social attitudes about such things as justice, risk and death lag behind.
Well..first off NONE of their weapons had flashlights…I mean come on!! How do we take anyone serious if they dont have a Tacticool flashlight attached. Then..Camo. Seriously…that is how you know if your gun is truly accurate..it has camo on it! Finally, they were all needing the proper safety equipment..like approved tacticool boots! smh..amateurs…*
* Please note sarcasm…in the whole statement above..except for the flash light..LOL
Pakistani SSG, aka their countries SOF, aka the guys who train the Taliban and who are typically Taliban fighters as well
Could we see that again with the shooter using a 12ga, loaded with #4 buckshot?
Take off and nuke the entire site from orbit…its the only way to be sure.
Where’s Billary when you need him…her…it
OK, for all of you who have your panties in a knot, might I remind you of the days when there was a petite woman, all of 4’11”, shooting stuff out of her husband’s/manager’s hands, cigars out of his lips, apples off his head, etc with .22’s and such?
Phoebe Ann Moses. Might want to google her.
We should strongly encourage all Islamists to do regular and repeated practice like this every day.
They also should practice after hashing up the hookah in case they ever recive a SEAL team raid after a hookah fest.
Accidents and death should be viewed as acceptable byproduct of a well trained team.
The team should practice until there is only one person remaining so that they know who is best.
There can be only one!
