Funniest things seen on ranges/training areas.....

#1
Yesterday I & some colleagues visited a certain urban range complex "somewhere in England". Upon entering said facility we went for a wander to familiarise ourselves, certain parts of it are interactive to create greater training realism.
I couldn't help noticing that the dummies who populated some of the buildings had been re-arranged, obviously some users have let their imagination run riot..........in one house there was an open coffin with a male dummy lying face up in it, with a female dummy placed on top in the "69" position. Not that imaginative by itself, you might think, but on the other side of the room was an old sofa with 2 child dummies seated on it; the arms/hands of both had been posed to make it look as though they were covering their eyes - Ooh, don't look!
This caused a lot of mirth, further supplemented by the observation that a kennel had been placed outside another house; within the kennel was a large stuffed toy dog being rogered senseless by a stuffed toy camel.
Anyone else come across any imaginative usage of props like this on ranges or training areas? Some Arrsers no doubt will know the identity of the facility referred to above, or may have been responsible for the creative posing of dummies themselves........ :wink:

Sennelager, besides the bird with no knickers, one time i was there, someone had arranged a dummy to be giving head to another in the bogs. Both had priests vestment thingys on :)

The coathanger range at Hythe, someone had arranged for the priest (the one with the GBFO crucifix that looks like a gat) to come out at top speed, close behind another dummy of a young boy, also moving at top speed. Needless to say, the clothing of both had been somewhat rearranged.

To keep the lid on the village location
Doing the training , and use a door way as you do , which opened , in side the dummy look like it was taken a p*ss , until I was shot .
Went back some years later , this time , I shot first with the DS calling me some name at the time , not getting shot by the same runt twice

Lets Be Ave U

When in the ACF many years ago , a young lad fired the 303 bren on a 25m range . each time he fire, he moved forward end up half way down the range , he was the same height as the gun
RCO don't shoot at the birds /crossing sheep , wrong thing to say
people looking over the top or walking out of the butts when firing is going on

No it's not you big fucking fibber
No you are right I was just using artistic licence to illustrate that i found the 30 seconds comment very amusing. In future I shall try to restrain myself and stick to the complete truth. Just like everybody else on here. :wink: XXX

Once a long time ago at RAF Kinloss,the Air Cadets were shooting SLR & 303 & useing shooting ramps.
This one girl cadet was having probs with the 303 so they used sandbags to help rest the gat.She pulled the trigger,screamed,pis*ed herself & slid down the ramp!
