As mentioned earlier, I went through ALERRT training today.
I only caught one round, and it was friendly fire.
Friendly fire... isn't.
Simunitions drives a little 9mm hollow plastic bullet, filled with the color paint of your mission out of the barrel of a Glock 17T at about 400 fps.
When they hit you, it hurts.
They did get the bad guy, though.
That's my finger and my belly button, pointing out where a Blue-On-Blue shooting hit me just near the belly button.
My daughter told me when I got home that my wife thought that I was running around playing war games like little boys. I was a little disappointed. What we were actually doing was learning how to kill bad guys, as a quickly-assimilated team.
The instruction was excellent. One of the instructors was Sgt. Rusty Jacks of the Tyler, TX police department. Who's he? Well, I recognized him, and asked him if he had been riding any car trunks lately. He has a very good attitude about killing bad guys-- "Screw 'im. He needed to be stopped, so call it a good day's work. It's deer season, and you could use the two weeks off."
