Anyone watching Fox news right now? (quarter to 8) there something about the snipers in Afghanistan, and there having a reporter & two other army guy sit like 5 feet away from a target of a human torso while the sniper was shooting at it from a concealed position. And these are the "highly trained" troops? Even if they are marine snipers, that's just unsafe gun handling.

What do you mean unsafe gun handling? Was anyone injured? This is an example of exemplary gun handling. SEALs take turns being the "hostage" inside the shoot houses--with live ammo hitting the targets around them.

This training technique is actually used by many of the top SWAT / SF units around the world. I've seen the LASO SWAT do this under even tighter conditions. SAS does something like this on room entry drills with members of their own team in the room with Bad guy targets . Memebers of the Royal family have even been known to do this also. One thing I noticed is that they never checked the tarets for hits !! Based on what I saw of where the rounds where hitting I think they may have missed.
