I was 'small arms PO' on my ship and was responsible for the crew's weapon familiarization, qual and assignment. The Skipper, Weapons Officer and I were the only ones holding the keys to the SA locker. When the officers "had the time", guess who they called for weapons qual?
Enter LT Showdy, a true waste of brass! The Skipper had the bridge so this a**h*** gets me out of my bunk and wants a full weapon familiarization now! (To be conducted on the bridge in the presents of the Skip.) Well I lugged a full complement of small arms to the bridge and asked permission to come topside. Skip said precede and please exercise the flare guns first and only one flare per gun. (We had 2.) Well Showdy looked at the 12 ga and said "Let's do the big one first." That would be the Model AN-M8 37mm FLARE PISTOL affectionately called the "Buck Roger".

I loaded the Buck and started to show him the proper two hand grip to which he said "Give me the gun, I know how to shoot the damn thing."

Wait for it..........yea..........he raised the Buck up over his head, one handed, and lit that puppy off!

Thwack!

The recoil stopped only when the Buck came in contact, spending all it's kinetic energy, on Showdy's forehead.

He dropped like a prom dress with a pool of blood forming on the bridge.

The Skipper never missed a beat, bent over and announced on the 1MC, "Doctor to the bridge, corpsman to the bridge." (Sub Drivers are sooooo kool!) I immediately requested permission to lay below. As I hit the bottom of the ladder in the control room I passed the Dr. and corpsman, first aid kit in hand, on the way up!

One smelling salts, six stitches, broken glasses and a huge dressing on the forehead later he returned to the control room and retired to his stateroom.

The stitches and dressing were gone in short order but for the remainder of our two month patrol, I got to smile every time Showdy passed me with his uber-geek taped up glassed!

Ain't karma grand?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Can't you just hear the Lib Wheels Spinning - "What could they POSSIBLY use that gun for?! They can't even hold on to the damn thing"
Why would you own a gun like this?
