0 How to Load M16 For Dummies

It was my first camping with  tentatives filled with how to load and unload an M16. Those who confused with what I'm talking about, well I am talking about the rifle that shoot dead people in war. Oops. Yes, imma a teacher. Correct. A teacher who takes Police Cadet as my uniform squads in co-curriculum activities in school. During recent camping in Misompuru, Kudat, we ended the camping by going to the shoot range in Kem Paradise, Kota Belud for shoot training. The students were taught how to load and unload the M16 and how to shoot during the camping while we were still in Kudat. They were only get to load the bullets and really shoots at the shoot range. While the teachers also taught by experienced teachers on this as not only the students who would get the chance to shoot, the teachers too~! yeay, I don't know how to react to this idea actually until i reached at the shoot range on the last day of  the camping (on the last day, we were moved to the range by police trucks). The pictures below taken in Kudat during the camping.

This girl is putting the rifle to SAFE mode.

That's the house where the female escort teachers lived during the camping
Fire in the hole! These students are all ready to fire. No, it's unloaded. The magazine is empty, will explain later what 's magazine is. Of course I don't mean the CLEO magazine, or OK magazine. Stay tune.

If there was a thing that I regretted in this camping was not bringing with my camera charger. I didn't expect that we would be having sockets to plug handphone or camera charger during camping. Umph, well, therefore I did not take pictures during the training at the range since my tablet, camera and handphone were all flat on the last day. I would be proud to post my pictures shooting at the air. At least I am holding the rifle and shooting! Not just reading. Forgive me, readers. As this was my first shoot training, I am proud that I could shoot one shot to the bull. Even I was shaking in hungry, cold of the rain and nervous at the  new experience, deaf at the sound of firing bullets. There's always first time for everything. 

Okay, okay...I'm not gonna held you any longer to read my ramblings. Gonna share with you on how to load the M16. The very basics to handle a  firearm. Read on.

1. First thing first, if you handling a weapon, whether it's loaded or not, point it in a safe direction.
2. Cock the weapon. Pull the charging handle all the way back and hold it. with the charging handle back, turn the weapon on its side and look into the firing chamber to make sure that there us no bullets caught in the chamber. If they are, they can cause an explosion when the fresh bullets put in.
3. Ride the bolt forward. Slowly, keeping pressure on the charging spring, return the bolt to the forward position. Letting the bolt slam forward. This produce the cool sound which we often hear from movies
4. Move the selector lever to "SAFE".
5. Insert a loaded magazine into the magazine well. It is below the trigger.Push the magazine up from the bottom until the catch engages. Give the bottom of the magazine a slap to ensure that it stays. You may pull down on the magazine once it is on place to check if it will slip out.
6. Now, move the selector to "SEMI" to fire one at a time or "AUTO" if you wish to fire all bullets all at once.
7. Aim at whatever you are firing on. If you are right-handed, you might close the left eye and right eye opened. So does if it is other way around.
