How many times did you have to stress to your guys to check the light on the clacker? Or it would get ugly?
Everytime you took it out of the pouch BEFORE the mine was even touched, especially after double timing to a position, you could charge that thing with just the run.....luckily, we didn't have any ugly scenes.

One would think wouldn't they. But then JROTC drills must trump Petes training
?????????????

Cadet Airmen: Well considering the backblast on a claymore and the fact that the Blue (Inert) line is small on this one, how would you think people would react... I have fired a few Claymores so yeah I am a little experienced. And I think that people should be concerned about youth with anti pers devices, don't you?

I know I sounded obnoxiously rude in my last post and I apologize if I insulted anyone's intelligence and appreciate your concern, but I take it personally when people assume I'm some punk kid who knows nothing about the Military or weapons, granted I don't know everything and most of you are trained professionals who are old hands in such things as using and proper storage of claymores, so thanks for your input and concern.
