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.
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.
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.
