Isn't 'mortar' that stuff that goes between cement blocks and bricks?

Your pharmacist uses a mortar with a pestle to mix up certain drugs!!!



I think they also use the same or similar device for prepping and mixing spices in the kitchen.

Well...

you do NOT look down the tube to see what the problem is!!!

There is a strict process to go through...

that does happen occasionally.



From the book:

(1) When a misfire occurs, any member of the squad immediately announces, “Misfire.”
The entire squad stays with the mortar. If it is obvious to the squad leader that the round has reached the bottom of the barrel and it has failed to ignite, the gunner places the selector switch on trigger fire and squeezes the trigger several times to try to clear the round.
These type rounds usually fire when trigger fired.
2. In case of a hangfire, kick the cannon several times to dislodge the round.
(2) If the round fails on trigger fire, the gunner places the selector switch back on drop
fire. Staying clear of the muzzle at all times, the squad leader holds the bipod legs to prevent slippage. The gunner strikes the barrel sharply several times with the heel of his boot just above the handle assembly. If the round fails to dislodge after trigger firing and kicking, the gunner places the selector switch on SAFE.

Maybe they should carry a bigger hammer. I don't see anywhere in the book that says RUN or KISS your *** goodbye.   8*

Just reading on yahoo how upset the liberal media is the US Olympic committee chose Michael Phelps over a raghead Muslim that plans to compete in her Muslim attire as our flag-bearer.  Yeah, I getting tired of the Muslim BS..

A rawhide mallet might work but the metal on a mortar tube isn't real thick although it is high strength...

I'm thinking a metal hammer would probably do more damage than good. 

It's one thing if it happens in training but a different story if it happens in battle. 

Here are some more pictures of my former unit on training maneuvers in Romania this week.

No mortars today but this is how to get a very, very heavy tank across a deep river!

Hidden camera social experiment shows proves most people are sheep.

This is really scary.
