All In The Name of Education (part II)

A while back, I posted a series of pictures showing what a computer CPU looked like before and after I shot it with my pistol, and then with a shotgun. Today, I want to show you something a little different.

The administrative staff at my church was about to trash an old computer monitor that had to be replaced, but when I heard about it, I thought that another training opportunity had been placed in front of me.

I told the program director that I wanted to take it to work and shoot it up... er, use it for training purposes, she was glad to let me take it.

This is a plain ol' Dell computer monitor, the subject of today's exercise.

This is a 5.56mm, M-4 Carbine (this one has a suppressor, so it is VERY quiet when you fire it). It is a law enforcement variant of the standard military M-16A2 service rifle.

This is a 5.7x28mm, FN P-90 sub-machine gun. It was designed for the Belgian armed forces, for use by tank and ambulance crews. In American law enforcement, it is used for SWAT operations and close protection agents.

This is a standard Sig Sauer (.357 caliber), model P-229, service pistol. This one is the one I carry on duty.

(Borat voice) "High five!"

I love your "shoot things up" posts. I think you should make it a regular feature.

Our of curiosity, where do you do this? Do you get many strange looks? ;)

Ah! Most excellent of experience! Veddy nice!

I, too, love the shoot'em up posts. Though they also send a chill down my spine... some big guns you got there.

I work for one of the many three-lettered law enforcement agencies in the federal government, and I am the rangemaster for my agency here in the National Capitol Region.

My office is about 25 yards from where those pictures were taken.

As for strange looks... no, not really. I go to the range and shoot things practically every day.


I suppose next week I have to shoot up something spectacular...

I'd better start working on that now.

You are my hero!

Plus, all the guns turn me on a little. What can I say...I'm a gun whore.

Great post.

Grimm said...

Dude, you have seriously brought out my inner Beavis with these posts.

I can see next weeks post already.

Here we have my neighbors garden gnome that has been giving me the evil eye. And over here we have a standard military issue rocket launcher.

Oooooo...the anticipation!

This is your monitor. This is your monitor with a big ole bullet hole. I see an ad campaign, cottage industry maybe.

Power on.

(oddly enough word verification: powwir) hahahaha

You make me wanna shoot things, GF. Can't wait to see what's next!

Leslie said...

I vote for making the shoot 'em up posts a regular feature. They rock pretty hard.

Gunfighter said...

I'm thinking of shooting up some old body armor next week.

What do you think?

Lawyer Mama said...

Holy crap! Scary, but fascinating! I vote for the body armor.

Elizabeth said...

I haven't seen the Borat movie yet. I want to but now I really want to.

I think it would be so cool if you could shoot up a big, stuffed Barney.
