Shooting the wire
Posted 24 July 2012 - 01:39 PM
Next shooter is shooting rather wild, hits a few no shoots, gets some bad shots on targets, then misses the trigger popper...but manages to hit the wire and cut it. Wire goes flying, pull out the pliers to twist the wire together. Reshoots the stage and does much better.
Next shooter comes up, and sure enough, nails the wire yet again.
So 13 shooters, and 3 in a row manage to cut the wire with no one else having that issue.

Every cloud has a silver lining, but hundreds of people are killed each year by lightening trying to find it.
Clever got me this far, then tricky got me in....

That is taking gaming a stage to extremes!
I would respectfully disagree....."that is taking gaming down to THE WIRE"

Anyway my buddy Ed is bent over a few firing positions down from me helping one of the other shooters with a problem with his rifle. He had called out a balloon color and type but the team at my end was just about to engage it when a small gust of wind detached it and it fell to the ground in about the middle of the target frame about 2 feet in front of the frame. (The frame is COVERED with balloons of various types and colors. )
The exercise is supposed to last about 20-30 minutes going through the teams stressing them out not hitting the other balloons etc....
My guys say "Hey our balloon just fell....what do you want us to do?" I look at Ed who has his back to me bent over a rifle and is obviously busy so I make a command decision and tell them: "No problem....if you can still see it? Then shoot it."
The two guys pair fire (both firing simultaneously) and every freaking balloon on the frame suddenly disappears. The small balloon was in front of a rock that we didn't see. The round fragmented and it was like we had fired a massive shotgun at the frame and "Poof!" all the balloons were gone. WIth that Ed looks up already starting to call out the next balloon color and shape and he looks downrange and his voice dies out. He then turns to me with his mouth open with this WTF? expression on his face and every guy on the line and waiting to shoot bursts out laughing.
They later told me my lower jaw was hanging open like I was trying to catch flies while Ed was doing his WTF face.
We had a short range equipment failure party while all the LE snipers spent 10 minute blowing up balloons.
