Mega rat-a-tat-tat

In addition to my normal Air Force specialty, I was twice selected for the additional duty as an Air Force Security Police Augmentee (2 whole days of training each time). One of the neat things about it was that I got to fire the M-60 machine gun twice, 10 rounds each time.

"Hey, that ammo don't grow on trees, Airman and this is just to get you familiar with the gun."

Even though my lifetime total was only 20 rounds, it was still kind of neat to fire a machine gun. So, I can imagine the rush this guy got firing 850 rounds of 7.62 NATO. Wowee-Zowee!

Hat tip to Compass Points.
