Just as a side note, I was at a familiarization range in AP hill VA and we were learning how to fire 60mm Mortars. (Im a Missile Guy)! We practiced for hours dropping rounds and sliding our hands down the tubeout of the way of the muzzle, first dummys and sub munitions, finally its time for me to drop HE. I clasp the round, eased the fins into the tube, dropped the round and slid my hands but didnt slide past the muzzle quick enough and boom, the round went up through my hands like a bullet! I scorched the tops of my thumbs and hands but luckily they stayed attached!!!!! That was way too phucken close for me, I stuck with missiles from then on...
