I was combat arms in the Air Force and had a SMSgt point it straight up towards his chin instead of pointing it down range. Told him to stop because I didn’t want to do paperwork when he eventually blew his brains out. He stopped doing it.

It’s still security forces (military police), but we trained and maintained the wings firearms. We didn’t do security or law enforcement on base.

I’m used to clarifying for people. When I was in CATM training we had a guy go from marines to AF and us Air Force guys had to teach him how to walk on grass, one step at a time lol.
