  4. Meh… He’s dressed like a no-shoot, he’ll be fine. Probably.

  7. I had to look at that photo for a second to see the guy down range, Saddly this may happen more often than anyone wants to admit

  8. It can happen. Check the range before make ready. Don’t get complacent. Really, IMO, the shooter is the least culpable here. RO, ARO – I’m sure they thought the range was clear. Guy picking up brass needs to pay attention too. There is a lesson to learn here.

  9. Total error and almost fatal error.

  10. TLG long-time reader. I thought of you when I saw this and wondered if it would be on the blog. That man might as well been in Aleppo wearing an American flag T-shirt

  11. 1) How can you be downrange when the shooting starts and not notice something is wrong.

    2) It would be very easy to miss someone when the stage is using solid walls. The RO or CRO should have been the last man to leave move up range and call the range clear.

    It’s a miracle that dude didn’t take any rounds. I guess they didn’t have any possible shoot throughs.

  12. I like the way the guy downrange sort of ducks behind the target when he realizes someone is shooting.

  13. I see how the shooter was unaware of the guy down range, I don’t excuse it, but I understand.

    What I really don’t understand is why the guy down range remained here for so long. The shooter was into his second magazine before the guy down range reacts/says anything. At least I didn’t hear him on the recording until the end of the video……

    At anyrate, at least no one was hurt. and I hope they all learned something.

  14. Note to self, never wear a brown T-shirt to a match.

  15. Reminds me of the time I pasted an entire stage myself. Fortunately no one tried to start the next shooter while I was down there. It was late in the day and everyone’s attention meter was low so the entire squad stood around thinking everyone else was pasting. We all had a good laugh. I’m sure no one had a good laugh in this vid.
