Reply Tom says: June 12, 2014 at 11:27 So the guy doing the shooting gets applauded, no love for the guy holding the pots.

Reply Frank P says: June 11, 2014 at 23:02 +++ Reply Jim Barr says: June 12, 2014 at 11:08 Don’t know which is worse, being shot at, or having to hold those damn pots out with arms outstretched. My arms hurt. Reply Steve says: June 11, 2014 at 21:03 Just another day At Yeager’s. Reply neal harding says: June 11, 2014 at 21:36 you ben to my garpa home are you a yeager yeager on moms side gladwin michigan Reply Andrew says: June 12, 2014 at 08:03 UHHH……WHAT? Reply Nicks87 says: June 12, 2014 at 23:35 Yes Andrew, James Yeager is a moron. benny says: June 11, 2014 at 21:06 Steve wins 12 Internets for his comment win Reply PGT says: June 11, 2014 at 21:07 Guess you guys have never seen this one, eh? Spetnaz Alpha Team confidence drills (Russia – where 30% losses of hostages is considered acceptable) Reply Phil says: June 11, 2014 at 21:22 I just spotted that one the other night kinda left me speechless Reply PGT says: June 11, 2014 at 21:23 inorite? over the top. Reply Phil says: June 11, 2014 at 21:30 The simulated head shoot is what creeped me out neiowa says: June 12, 2014 at 09:44 Love the ND at 3:49. Fing commies. Now these clowns are “training” in Ukraine. Reply Steve Truffer says: June 12, 2014 at 10:55 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. JasonM says: June 11, 2014 at 23:15 TTAG posted this video earlier this year. Reply Jeff Sabelko says: June 11, 2014 at 21:09 Hey, at least he had gloves on for safety. Reply Tom in Oregon says: June 11, 2014 at 21:11 I got nothing. http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1427/3179/1600/qcayj3.jpg Reply Rick says: June 11, 2014 at 21:52 He failed this morning’s uniform inspection. Reply C says: June 11, 2014 at 21:11 Sometimes you just have to put safety third. Reply Guy says: June 12, 2014 at 08:01 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. Reply C says: June 12, 2014 at 09:35 A loophole! Reply EagleScout87 says: June 12, 2014 at 09:39 +1 for the Mike Rowe quote! Reply Mike says: June 11, 2014 at 21:12 Wow, that looks like fun! Maybe we’ll try it at the gun club this weekend …. then again, umm, NO Reply Model66 says: June 11, 2014 at 21:21 Well…..maybe if you belong to Club Gitmo! Reply IthinkIhaveaProblem says: June 11, 2014 at 21:14 His mom is going to be pissed that was their good china! Reply Paul53 says: June 11, 2014 at 22:07 Ruined the china and missed the target every time! Reply cogline says: June 11, 2014 at 21:19 I am assuming he is a prisoner of war and I sure am glad it wasn’t the cameraman doing the shooting. Reply Ralph says: June 11, 2014 at 21:20 This is actually an New York Police Department training exercise and all shots were aimed at center mass. Reply C says: June 11, 2014 at 21:27 hahahaha Reply Wielsucker (@Wielsucker) says: June 11, 2014 at 22:07 Those guys even screw up a firing squad! Reply JasonM says: June 11, 2014 at 23:16 NYPD would have gotten a round over a wall and hit a civilian. Reply Former Water Walker says: June 11, 2014 at 21:21 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? Reply Rick the Bear says: June 11, 2014 at 21:32 Try viewing this video from LASD in 1936 and you’ll think that these guys are being safe. Reply Brian in WI says: June 11, 2014 at 21:47 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. Reply Paul T. McCain says: June 11, 2014 at 21:42 Looks like a Yeager training class to me. Reply Jay1987 says: June 11, 2014 at 21:43 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) Reply Brian in WI says: June 11, 2014 at 21:49 Must…resist…temptation… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOo06EOLBuY Failure Reply BillF says: June 11, 2014 at 21:50 Hey, hold my beer–I wanna try too! Reply ready,fire,aim says: June 11, 2014 at 22:14 the guy sitting on the chair getting shot at drew the short straw on that one…..wow Reply Nicks87 says: June 11, 2014 at 23:15 Allahu Ackbar indeed! Reply T-DOG says: June 11, 2014 at 23:36 Must be one of those “building trust exercises” we see work places do time to time. Reply Don says: June 11, 2014 at 23:45 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. Reply Don says: June 11, 2014 at 23:54 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. Reply PavePusher says: June 12, 2014 at 00:11 Meh. Darwin awaits….. Reply Southern Cross says: June 12, 2014 at 00:12 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. Reply v v ind says: June 12, 2014 at 01:12 Guys hand at 1:24? Reply boardsnbikes says: June 12, 2014 at 01:37 Proper backstop. Reply John in Ohio says: June 12, 2014 at 05:51 Good shooting and a target holder with nerves of steel. All consenting adults engaged in voluntary activities. Reply Aaron says: June 12, 2014 at 06:24 I am offended at this video. Looks like they made the black guy hold the tea pots. Reply dh34 says: June 12, 2014 at 06:50 Never be the last guy to show up for the morning’s training evolution. Reply Gregolas says: June 12, 2014 at 07:05 Who are they applauding at the end? The shooter, or the shootee? Reply Larry Perkins says: June 12, 2014 at 08:07 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. Reply Yossarian says: June 12, 2014 at 08:09 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.” Reply EagleScout87 says: June 12, 2014 at 09:45 +1 Reply John in Ohio says: June 12, 2014 at 13:44 +2 Reply BDub says: June 12, 2014 at 09:59 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. Reply Brent says: June 12, 2014 at 10:16 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 Reply Pashtun6 says: June 12, 2014 at 10:34 Pakistani SSG, aka their countries SOF, aka the guys who train the Taliban and who are typically Taliban fighters as well Reply IdahoPete says: June 12, 2014 at 10:55 Could we see that again with the shooter using a 12ga, loaded with #4 buckshot? Reply C Wesley Bryant says: June 12, 2014 at 11:29 Take off and nuke the entire site from orbit…its the only way to be sure. Reply esitue says: June 12, 2014 at 13:56 Where’s Billary when you need him…her…it Reply Dyspeptic Gunsmith says: June 12, 2014 at 16:16 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. Reply John in Ohio says: June 12, 2014 at 16:45 Yup. 🙂 Reply doesky2 says: June 12, 2014 at 17:24 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.
