The Shooting Practice

A sergeant was training the new recruits and they were trying his patience. None of them seemed to be able to shoot straight.
The sergeant took them closer to the target.
“Now take careful aim, steady your hand, and slowly, very slowly, pull the trigger,” said the sergeant.
They followed his instructions and shot, and this time all of them except for one thin youth managed to hit the target.
The sergeant flew into a rage. “You dimwit !” he screamed. “You’re a disgrace to the army! Why have you come here! Why don’t you go behind that shed and shoot yourself?”
Immediately, the youth saluted, turned and marched off to the back of the shed.
The sergeant was calm.
How could he remain calm?


As the sergeant knew the trainees are not uptodate shooters, he remained calm. The youth went behind the shed and shot, but he didn't succeed.
He could remain calm as he was angry that the youth was a disgrace to the army. The youth tried shooting himself behind the shed but he could not as he was a weak aimer
He went behind the shed and fired a shot. The sergeant then looked and saw the man return from behind the shed unharmed. The youth was unable to shoot himself just like his target.
Then there was a loud bang. The youth had hit the bulls eye from the shed. He was the Major in disguise - he was trying to test the patience of the sergeant.
The student was obedient & didn't argue with the teacher. Thus thinking the teacher followed the youth and lovingly took him back. Thus the child was able to study shooting.
The youth dropped the gun while saluting
The sergeant could remain calm because he wanted to test the youth's obedience and wisdom. The youth without hesitating went to the shed and when he was about to shoot himself,the sergeant ran and snatched the gun from his hand. The sergeant with pride made him the captain of the army and also gave other youths his example.
The sergeant was calm because accidentally the youth shot the sergeant and thus the sergeant died remaining still and calm while the youth was alright and can you'll guess what happened to the youth... He was the next sergeant
The sergeant was quite sure that the youth can't meet his target. That is why he remained calm even when the youth went so obedient.ha..ha..ha! The youth returned after sometime unsuccessful in his mission. With atmost fear he said,"si....sir , the bullets got over. Can you please give me more bullets so that I can try again" at which the sergeant burst out with a laugh.
The sergeant remained calm because though he was talented he didn't want to try. The youth went back to the shed and kept his hand close to his forehead. He didn't aim properly. He just couldn't aim at the target and so he couldn't succeed in his death.
