    Somewhere in Texas!
    All I know is I never saw any "chewed up finger nail" dudes get invited to the "management retreat". All expenses paid to Kauai for 5 nights. These people brought their kids, wives, some of them brought their "girlfriends" (escorts). Everyone looked like they were straight out of a fashion magazine.
    Never ever wanted to leave Texas. I've been down the suit wearing road before, Don't need 'cept for funerals, I'm going to be buried, nekkid and face down, so's everyone can kiss my ass. Money is nice, but the back stabbing, cocksucker shit lickers make things miserable. I'm happier in my current shitty little job.

    Can't forget to check the chamber while cycling and clearing.
    Had an oops after a long night, had the BCG locked back and the mag in (AR). Putting it in my locker I remembered I hadn't fully cleared it so checked the chamber, checked the bolt face, sent to bolt home pointed in safe direction and had a very loud hammer drop...

    It made for an even longer night, but I learnt a few very good lessons.

    I heard a story about an older, impatient father that took his adult and very patient son hunting in his car. The father spotted a trophy and stopped the car so his son could get out of the passenger side to make the shot. He laid the rifle across the roof and was lining up the cross hairs of the scope when the impatient father, who could not understand why the son had not fired yet, got out of the car and stood up in front of his son, who was about to pull the trigger. I understand they both screamed very loudly realizing what almost happened. The son never went hunting with his father ever again.

    Kind'a reminds me of hearing about a guy (friend of a friend story) who decided to use the side of his pickup bed to steady his aim as he sighted his AR in at his backyard range. But he didn't do the math on the fact that the scope is raised and his target was slightly downhill. He managed to put several 5.56mm holes in the opposite side because the muzzle wasn't clearing that side of the truck even though the scope's line of sight was.

    And railroad tracks with a .22 lr make that worse.
    Not me, but an acquaintance. With a pierced ear.

    There was the time when I was about 15 my idiot former sister almost shot me trying to clear her cheap-ass .32 auto. I was helping her move and she forgot she had the pistol hidden between her mattresses. Then she tried to clear it, failed, figured it was clear anyway and pointed the gun at the top mattress and pulled the trigger. The slug ricocheted off the mattress and landed behind me.
