SargeC4,

After I saw the BLOODY aftermath of a USPS Criminal Inspector's slide coming off of a "plastic [email protected]#$", I wouldn't have one if they were free. = The Postal Inspector ended up with a deep/ugly 3" gash on his face, >30 stitches & came all too close to losing his left eye.

yours, sw

SargeC4,

Despite the fact that I was at that time "in charge of" the entire range that day, I only witnessed the bloody results of the incident & took the sworn statements of the other USPS officers for my report, after the wounded guy was transported to the local ER.
(The USPS shooters were about 250-300M farther down the gun range. The first that I knew of the unfortunate happening was when an PI came to request our EMT to come & help the victim. - I thereupon went to the local area & saw his face, as he was being treated before being transported.)

Fwiw, the statements of the other LEOs indicated that the victim was firing "rapid fire" from the 15M line when the slide came off & hit him in the face. - To my knowledge nobody ever figured out exactly what went wrong or at least the PMO and/or the post DPCA was never informed of the finding of the USPS investigation/after-action report.
(Our post DPCA was told, more or less politely, that it was "not a military incident", not within our investigative jurisdiction & to "butt out".)

In case you don't know, most federal civilian LE agencies see the US military LE agencies as "inferior, not well-qualified, subordinate in all 'shared cases' & certainly not 'our sort of people'."
(The RUDEST people that I ever dealt with as a PM & Supervisor of USACIDC were the FBI & BATFE HQ "big shots". = Their usual "technique for dealing with other LE agencies was to smile to your face & then stab you in the back at the first opportunity. - Also the FBI/BATFE never admits their own errors. = It's always "someone else" who is at fault in every case.)

yours, sw

Sarge, you're new here so one thing you should know is that this forum is top-heavy with traditionalists who embrace the blued-steel-and-wood ethic. Anything invented after...oh, say ironclad ships...is considered an abomination.

Society's downhill slide started with Bakelite, and degenerated quickly from there to aluminum, the various polymers, strikers, MIM, etc. Non-corrosive primers are viewed with suspicion.

That having been said, you will find some of the most knowledgable and civil people in the gun community here. The level of expertise and depth of experience astounds me sometimes. Just prepare for merciless ribbing if you mention a firearm not contemporaneous with John Browning.

Snake45,

Well, there is that. = My 72YO eyes don't see nearly as well as they worked even 5 years ago.
(All of my rifles, including my RF pump, are now "scoped".)
