No question: the above video was a set-up. No, “Kern” didn’t purposely let the Smith & Wesson 500 hit him in the head. But XxSkorchxX knew what was going to happen, and could have instructer Kern how to avoid it (where’s the fun in that?). The shooter was the third “victim” of this Maximum Recoil video series. [Make the jump for a more comely comedy.] In fact, I bet he bought the 500 just to punk his erstwhile friends. I’m not going to go all IGOTD on this. I just want to know one thing: is it funny? Did you laugh at this? Is it funny? Funny how? Funny like he’s a clown, he amuses you? He makes you laugh, he’s here to amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How is he funny?
