The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Mate of mine on his brecon i cant remember junior or senior, on stag with a GPMG somehow manages to let one off without trying, as quick as possible he carries on blatting and when the ds come over he points enemy at some forestry block 200yds away no enemy there so instead of a charge and getting RTUed he just gets called a blind fcuker.
On a Medman when I was a nig, I didnt check properly on an unload and sent one down the range.
"Who was that?"
Stuck my hand up
"Put the weopon down"
Layed the gat down on the ground and the armouror inspected it whilst I went for a stroll around the range. Rifle found not to be faulty and warned for orders.
Just before endex a few weeks later, I was flown by my OC to battlegroup HQ where there was a queue of about 20 blokes all getting done for NDs. One bloke had let a chain gun go over his OCs head and there had already been a casualty earlier in the Ex when someone had shot his mate up the arrse accidently during a night exercise.
The blokes who went before me were coming back with £400 fines and I was seeing my future R&R as pretty dull, I was Beasted over to the D&Ds CO and he read the charge. He asked me if I'd done it, I replied yes, he told me that my boss had said nice things about me, nice. the he ripped into me for a bit.
Then came the suprise, apparently the bloke who gave my weopon the once over was not qualified to do so, so even though I had admitted it he had to let me go scott free.
Still got Ragged back to the holding area though.
A mate from basic got done for an ND at ASMT Leconsfield in 90 or 91.
He wanted the Guchhi SA80 but wasn't concerted but said 'Yeah, no problem' and set one off..... it wasn't half funny to see him being doubled around by the really fat RSDG Provo Sgt......
LO in bosnia took out the Comd Gp of the unit he was attached to (about 6-7 blokes) with one 9 mil round. the thing went off straight down, hit the floor and splintered during an O'Gp. every one fron the CO down got a piece.
"hows this miniflare work ? right so you screw this bit in pull this bit back and oh fuck" Sets his ammo pouch alight fortunately was close to river
so he was pushed into and sat on till nearly drowned .
Sat in a platoon ambush in training. Everybodies doing their nodding dog impressions and struggling to stay awake. One guy (the grenadier) nods off and wakes up to the belief that the ambush has been sprung, strikes t-bang, lobs and then realises the ambush hasn't been sprung at all!
A Chilean Colonel managed to let one off in the toilets at Banja Luka at 0800 on a Sunday morning.
What would you be doing with a loaded pistol in the heads.....
STANTA sometime in the early 80's. Skirmish line moving through wood line. A_A has t-flash and decides that he can get it off quicker when we get bumped if he holds the striker to the rear of the stock of his gat and the t-flash in his pistol grip hand so they are real close together. The wood line starts getting dense with undergrowth and the dynamic A_A is using the muzzle of the gat to push aside brambles etc. Suddenly there's this hissing sound from right in front of A_A. First thought is that there's a baddie right down in front of me who just struck a t-flash... Fecker... A_A will show him... Looks down to find t-flash merrily burning away... F$CK... "Grenade" he yells and lobs it forward... OC comes rushing over
OC: "What you got A_A"... "
A_A: "Nothing Sir..."
OC: "Then why did you throw a t-flash?"
A_A: "Dunno how Boss but the fecker just ignited on it's own", (checking that the striker is now deep in his pocket)
OC: "Oh.. Ok..." and fecks off back into line
A_A Thinks: "WTF... He bought that?????"
Otterburn CQB range - I was to pull the for levers for the Training Captain, who was a regular badged SAS.
We did a dry run .... fine. He then loaded SMG and asked me what the IAs were for the weapon, half-turning as he did so. Before I could answer there were 3 rounds by my feet.
I didn't bother explaining what the IAs were for an ND, and nothing more was said about it. There was no shoot to kill policy at Otterburn it seems.
Wouldnt be the first time...........
Saw a quality one in Germany a few years back on the 9mm range, CHENMP was conducting a basic pistol shoot and I was a safety supervisor, a "Tim nice but dim" type bloke was on the range at this time and CHENMP says to him "Whats the condition of your weapon?" noticing that his hammer was back when it shouldnt have been, as he said this, the Tim nice but dim type bloke looks at CHENMP and symaltaneously pulls the trigger, shooting the ground less than a foot in front of him and covering me with sh*t in the process, CHENMP says to him "What have you just fcuking done?" "Nothing" was the reply! "You have just had an ND!" "No I havent" he says with a confused look on his face, "Tell him M2G!" So despite fits of laughter I managed to inform the fcukwit he had had an ND! and he still had the bollox to insist he hadnt! Good job he has since transfered to Corps where they dont use pistols as much!

My grandad's-whilst buttoning up the breech cover on his SMLE-round through the arm. 1917 near Arras, he was court martialled for negligently self inflicted wound. Med discharge to service bn. Given the casualties his company suffered later it might well have saved his life
Had a recruit at Rifle Depot many years ago who was a total mong. On ranges, when given unload (slr0 he would always, when clearing weapon, have an Nd. ( Were called accidentals in those days). he was 252d and put up to coy cdr. Fined, marched out, extra instruction. next time, two days later, same thing. Again followed routine to coy cdr, After his 4th time, we were told to stop picking on him.
He was incapable of clearing weapon. Always, repeat, always cocked weapon, removed mag, squeezed off.
Finished up going to 'Them' after 2 years. Poor bastards!
