    I don't pretend to be any kind of expert so I'd be interested to hear others' thoughts, but it sounds like an absolute shambles to me.

    Note: RIP rounds, as I understand it, are CS gas rounds that are designed to be fired through doors, wooden partitions etc in order to make a cloud of CS on the other side, debilitating suspects therein. They are not designed to be shot at people directly, and are considered lethal if that is done.

    And once again we see why working guns and live ammo should not be used anytime you are doing FoF training.

    NO ****! First rule of training is always safety. Loaded guns on living targets is just stupid.
