I applaud this guy’s desire to show off what “limp wristing” does to a semi-auto firearm, but this had me cringing from the second it started. It just didn’t look right, like he wasn’t really paying attention to what he was doing. I knew it wouldn’t end well. And while the guy somehow managed to walk away from the range with all of his blood still on the inside – this time – it could have gone bad real fast. . .
NEVER EVER EVER try to catch a dropped gun, ESPECIALLY a live gun that’s pointing at your soft squishy flesh. One misplaced finger and this would have gone from some dumb mook on the internet to fodder for the Brady campaign about how a gun “accidentally” killed its user.
But what makes this guy even more irresponsible is that even though he knew the dangers, he kept firing the exact same way after he lost control of the gun the first time. You can even hear him say “oh my God that was dangerous” at the end of the video. Yes, yes it was. You knew it, conatuslife, and ignored the risks to make a video anyway. And that earns you a treasured spot as today’s Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day.
