JTT: Nobody Downrange Even For Training

Well, without proper PPE

Richard Kilgore and Jake Call

This doesn’t require a lot of introduction or explanation. Hopefully, anyway. Perhaps you remember this video?


Or maybe this one?


This is from down Brazil way, as you can read here (well, if you can read Portuguese).

The fellow in the black shirt is Fernando Raphael Olivera, a military police officer. When called upon to account for this, he advised the Brazilian Sport Shooters Association (Atiradores Desportivos do Brasil) that he was shooting bullets made of paraffin, saying at most it “wouldn’t hurt any more than a paintball round.”

The Atiradores Desportivos do Brasil, however, was unimpressed with is reasoning. They declared it irresponsible and notified the State of Mato Grosso Practical Shooting Federation, the Brazilian Confederation of Practical Shooting and the Brazilian National Range Officer Institute to investigate his classes.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Oh, it’s Brazil. That changes things. There’s probably as much (or more) lead flying uprange than downrange, so it might be a safety measure.
