quick question about Ranges?

Postby Nougat on Fri Jan 11, 2019 9:57 pm

I remember seeing a term for when people unintentionally or maybe a better word would be irresponsibly point a firearm at someone?? splash? Cant remember.. the reason I want to know is I work Carpentry and theres a new kid that is NOT very careful/conscious with the nail guns particularily when handing them off, and I want to sound cool when I ask him to get it together regarding this behaviour :D hope you can help..I really dont like it one bit :o

sweep

Yep, did he mean isn’t though?

If he sweeps someone, give him a broom and he’ll figure it out eventually.

When someone points the muzzle of a gun at someone they "Sweep" that person with the muzzle. Is That what you are looking for.

Your question is not clear. Missing word (not)?
Because I care, I carry.

Sweep and flag are the two most common words.
