Shabbat Shalom

I have a bunch of pictures from today's training session with our town's kitat konenut (anti-terror squad), but it is a few minutes before shabbat and I don't have time to upload them all.  But these should give you an idea of what a tired (and sore) boy I am right now:

Shabbat Shalom.

It looks a lot like playing G.I. Joe for grown-ups. HA!

Seriously though - I'd feel safe in Efrat knowing you were there to protect us!

Shabbat Shalom.

SaraK... Funny, I don't feel very tough (my aching back)

tnspr569... Thanks.

orieyenta... There was no playing about it. This previously scheduled training day with the army was held after an attempted infiltration into our town a few nights before... and on the same day as a terrorist attack that took the life of two young men who were on leave from the army not far from where I live. Sadly our 'peace partners' don't seem very serious about stopping terror.

Your MOUT house is concrete? Were you guys using frangible ammo? What's behind the black panels in the middle picture?

Karl Newman... Yes, there are several different structures (apartment house, store, office building, etc.) so that different scenarios can be played out. All structures are concrete so that bullets don't pass through and hit anyone else in the structure. The black mats on teh walls are designed to allow the bullets to pass through but not ricochet back. It is the same material that is hung on the back wall behind the targets at most shooting ranges. And no, we were using regular FMJ rounds in the M-16s.

My compliments for your dedication and hard work. Stay safe.

Shooting's not my thing. More exactly, I never hit anything when I shoot, so I'm a danger to all.
