Into the Black

Today, of course, was Good Friday as we have a pretty close convergence of Easter and Passover this year. Of course the neat thing is that Friday can be a good cause for celebration for even the most secular, so we have just about everyone covered.

it must have pummeled their eardrums as well, firing inside a room.

i remember when i got my very first pistol, a 9mm Ruger, i was excited to try it out and didn't want to drive all the way to a range, so i just drove out in the middle of an open field in the country (was a couple miles from anywhere) and without any hearing protection (DOH!) fired 1 shot at a tree stump.

omg i actually felt my eardrums compress and i couldn't hear my own voice for a couple hours. eventually hearing came back ok but jeebus i had no idea the percussion was so intense, and this outside in an open field!

Sometimes if you go to an outdoor rifle range and they have parking anywhere near behind the line of fire, you can feel little "pings" on your eardrums when people fire, even with the windows rolled up.

If it's the version I have seen it's funny when the kids start screaming 'PUT IT DOWN!'

As for the Dave School, they are almost next door on the back lot of Universal FL. They have released some very impressive work in the past and it just seems to get better and better. Specidemons in particular was pretty brilliant.

That video brought back some nostalgia! I remember playing Mech Warrior 2 back in 1995 and I was always into the Battletech books. It was like seeing everything described become realized, kind of. Thate game series back then was just pure fun.

As for that police "instructor" shooting himself. His only saving grace was that he at knew enough not to point any weapon at anyone. Moron.

These kids saw a trained and veteran user of firearms shoot him self. Scared the shit out of them.

Lol. So am I, but I sure as hell wouldn't have gone on an ego trip like this guy describing how "qualified" I am over everyone else to safely handle firearms.

Bah, you are all the morons. This is just pure brilliance.

These kids saw a trained and veteran user of firearms shoot him self. Scared the shit out of them. Those kids will not be screwing around with a gun; if they ever own one they will probably treat it with more respect then average.

I think every gun safety instructor when teaching kids should accidentally shoot him self!

Funny as hell when he is trying to calm the kids trying to escape the class because somebody was stupid enough to hand him an assault rifle after he just shot himself.

I think it was in (eighth grade) hunters education class when they taught me to treat all weapons as if loaded. And to always empty (or check) the chamber when unloading your weapon before cleaning.

So it is beyond baffling why he pulled the trigger on a loaded weapon with a class room full of kids.

edit: Actually my father had already taught me that.. but it was the class I took which was the first state sponsored training.. which I am sure this guy had to go through numerous safety courses to be a DEA agent of over ten years.

I'd pay to see a full-length feature from these people.

Man, I miss mechwarrior. I wish we could get another one of those games. The online version was supposed to have been pretty damn cool before it got canned too.

He also notes that he is no longer "permitted or able to give educational motivational speeches and presentations."

Gee, I wonder why?!

Yeah when I saw that I thought, too bad he only shot himself in the foot and not in the skull.

Unless you are Blind, Deaf, Dumb, Drunk, and Stupid,
it is IMPOSSIBLE to accidently do what he did,
especially with a Glock. Someone completely inexperienced with firearms,
given 5 minutes of training, could not have done what he did.
