    Im using my phone and cant get the link copied, but you can find the story on wjz or wbal or fox 45 baltimore.
    Live rounds and service weapons should not be anyplace near, in, or around a training exercise. The story says an instructor" grabbed the wrong weapon".

    stock, for now
    Wasn't it the movie jarhead they used live rounds and the marine crawling thru the course panicked and got shot in the head?

    I guess its normal practice to use live rounds. I can't see a TRAINED instructor "grabbing the wrong gun".

    From what i can gather this was "active shooter" training, meaning the recruits and instructors would be exchanging fire with each other.
    Different then the scene in jarhead

    Never good to hear of such. Odd that they would have a live rounds in the firearms. They normally use Blanks. This should be interesting.

    It does say gravely linjured.... I am sure most of us have been to these training sessions. I see a P.P. change coming we are required when doing any NEW training to swap weapons and mags with the range master who secures them in gun lockers till training is over. They do hand us the key but you hand him the weapon 3 mags and one round period. Now some times they just make us secure weapon/mags in the vehicle we then get the training weapon and mags you holster and drop the mags in the pouches right in front of them. For long weapons Shotgun , M4s you hand it to them they make sure the weapon is clear they hand it back and hand you the training rounds. If it is not new training we just hand the mags and round or the open shotgun, M4 to them to inspect before moving to firing lanes,positions etc etc . Most of our R.M's don't even have a weapon on when instructing unless it's live fire exercises.

    We use blue marked simunitions weapons and rounds, that way live rounds can't even be loaded. What a tragedy. As a firearms instructor, this is my biggest fear and I triple check everything because of it.
