This wasn't a combat school- this was a tent- as in, a bunch of guys in their longjohns sitting around shooting the sh!t and not having anything better to do- three feet of snow on the ground and hours and hours of nothing in front of you.

This SGT friend of mine says "you know, if you push against the barrel of the 9mm, it won't fire". I say, "No sh!t?" So we PLAYED around with it. It was for sh!ts and giggles- to pass the time you know?

I only brought it up to point out that the military 9mm, won't fire in this situation. I've got better things to do with my time than go to a combat school or karate class. Jeez, lighten up.

It's called a "barrel safety", and it is one of the seven safeties on GI pistols.

Grip, barrel, switch -
