    Very sad.
    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

    No but I would hazard a guess that you don’t bump into that hill without getting bruised.

    That is very sad. Hope is still there that they survived.


    Only one question for Stuff(D) Was the fact the pilots were male anything to do with it? Does it make it more or less sad? Does it alter this event in any way? No. So why say "two experienced male instructors" when saying "two experienced instructors" is the same thing.

    For all we know they could have landed safely somewhere.

    Don't worry about it, can't always be up to the minute informed.
