Quick questions.

Why when still working, eg on exercise, making safe to get on a heli etc is part of the making safe drill to fire off the action??

Also on the SS rifle when making ready for first time the hammer is forward, so you are making ready with the safety catch off on a weapon with quite a sensitive trigger action.

Am I missing something?

A make safe is an unload followed by the replenishment of a magazine. There's no ready there, hence you fire off the action.

As for the SS, I'm sure the drills will have been lifted from the Diemarco.

To ensure it is safe?

You can't get safer than having the hammer forward. You still have to make ready. Lots of unexpected bangs on the ease springs bit on the range etc.

Incase some mong has not bothered his arse to do the make safe correctly, at least when he fires off the action he is not putting a round into the helicopter.

No we are joking, we actually cut around everywhere made ready with the safety catch removed from the weapon, only puffs need the safety catch.

Different Pam...WAH shield was engaged!
No need for a wah shield, you're just incorrect. Regardless of weapon system there is only one way to "Make safe", and that is a complete unload followed by a load, it has nothing to do with the type of weapon. It definitely has nothing to do with replenishing a magazine, which is why the statement was challenged in the first place.

Back in my day, bear in miind Ive been out a long while, a make safe was taught as a complete unload followed by a load. Regardless of whether it be a rifle, LMG, GMPG or pistol.

Chances are thats changed though, I don't think they issue chinese fighting suits anymore either.
