Okay, That Would Make Me Nervous, Too

One of my friends just returned to Camp Arifjan in Kuwait and was shocked to see tracer fire outside the northeastern area of the camp. Running up to the First Sergeant he anxiously demanded, "What the Hell is going on?".

"What do you mean?"

"I can hear small arms fire and see tracers! What's going on?"

"Oh...it's hunting season."

Camp Arifjan was not under attack. The Kuwaitis were hunting migratory birds. With AK-47s on full auto. The tracers were ricocheting off rocks.
