    I thought plod considered a loaded mag the same as a loaded rifle?
    Will they prosecute the plot concerned?
    And their union dickhead wonders where crims get guns from?

    Amazing for sure!Im part of the FFDO programme(I'll let you look that up)We are required to use a basic checklist when we enter and leave the cockpit,but blow me down blue we still have jokers who leave ,ammo,bullets,mags,guns behind.You may remember the last clown who shot and killed one of our aircraft....priceless!!!

    As long as we have people in charge of "things".... things will go astray

    Personally I can't believe it made the news.
    Who cares. A charged magazine has never killed anyone on its own has it?
    Heard of worse things left on top of cars. I have left untold coffees on the roof or bonnet of my vehicle over the years.

    Mate... good point,but as certain individuals are given greater responsibilities,that also comes with a professional responsibility to take care of your bloody gear

    I have carried a firearm in one proffession or another for most of my adult life.
    I have yet to this day had a safety breach/concern (not saying I wont) but I know I am capable of leaving a mag or loose ammo lying around, especially as I get older and dare I say, more complacent.

    Well at least it was not still in the gun. Mind you, aren't magazines supposed to be unloaded prior to driving off? I did like the quip that i was an empty used case before the editor changed it.....Unfortunately that particular scenario is all too possible these days.....

    I could make use of that. Pete, be a good man and go look for it for me. You can keep the ammo, I have enough.
    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

    Yeah mate,I get your point,and as I mentioned previously,people having "things"will lose them.But, these officers are held to a higher standard,a standard that requires a more professional attitude towards keeping in there person ,their magazines and equipment.

    You are preaching to the choir if you don't think I've screwed up.Several years ago went through customs in Mexico, they found one round of 40 cal inthe bottom of my bag,STREWTH!!!!..4 days before the company could get me out of jail..been there,done that.

    I arrived in Oz one trip recently and got changed into some pants that I stuffed into my carry-on bag. I was dumbfounded when I found I had a pocket full of .22 ammo.

    How that got thru the screening I can only wonder.
    Read an article a couple days later how some poor kiwi fella was put in jail in Italy for having 1 solitary .22 round found in his backpack while transiting thru their customs.
