Rule Four

Be sure of your target and what is behind it:

A 50-year-old man was mistaken for a target and accidentally shot during an exercise at a firearm-training facility in northern Arizona, authorities said.

The Florida man was training with three of his colleagues Sunday at the Gunsite Academy in Paulden, which is about 30 miles north of Prescott, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The man was standing on a catwalk as his colleague fired at targets. The colleague saw the black silhouette of the man and fired, shooting the man in the abdomen, officials said.

Also: Trainees had been told not to shoot in the area of the catwalk

    Just to be clear this happened in a shoot house scenario and the victim was on a catwalk above looking down on the action.

    What did they think was being simulated? Roof-based ninja attacks?

    “Rule Four” vioation, indeed. Colonel Cooper must be ready to tear his way out of his grave and throttle someone…

    Know what is cheaper than building a catwalk (or paying or increased insurance premiums)? A camera on a stick.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
