    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    IIRC the average life expectancy of a basejumper is 6yrs from when they start jumping to when they either die or quit because all their friends are dead.

    Must be a hell of an adrenaline rush though, I can understand how people get hooked.

    Yep the Jeb Corless has huge balls (makes it better for landing on I guess). He has also flown thru that big rock in China with the hole in it. He is one crazy flying man.

    He wanted to be the first to jump from a height and land without a parachute. While he was recovering from his Table Mountain hit a British Jumper achieved it by landing on a massive heap of cardboard boxes. No chute!!!

    Gotta respect that stuff in a crazy way.
