Khloe Kardashian and Rob Pincus Together . . . For An Afternoon

This is SO not fair. TTAG writer and firearms instructor Rob Pincus sent me a snap of his training session with Khloe “FFBF” (Famous for Being Famous) Kardashian and told me to “be nice.” That’s like spending a day at the beach watching an SI photo shoot for Genevieve Morton, only a lot more frustrating. So here’s the straight dope on KKD’s MOA from our favorite dome-headed gun guru: “Stuff like this helps us reach a demographic that Outdoor Channel and American Rifleman never even graze. She was a great student… honestly. You can say that I introduced her to the fundamentals of Combat Focus Shooting with a carbine and handgun…  and she did a familiarization with full auto fire as well.” Make the jump for Khloe’s take on the ballistic bonanza and some more shots of her trigger time . . .

“Earlier today Scott and I and a few friends went on a little adventure together. Scott has been wanting to learn how to shoot for a while now and didn’t have anyone to go with him, so I volunteered. It’s always good to try new things! So accompanied by two police officers and a gun specialist, we ventured out into the middle of the ocean where it is safe to shoot and we practiced a little. I personally like the land of glitter and unicorns better but hey… to each his own!”

A reality show never looked so real. Although I prefer a rod and reel when I’m fishing for compliments.

    ANY Kardashian = USELESS

      Not true. I seem to remember something about a videotape…

      1. avatar Leo Atrox says:

        Yeah. I can think of at least one use for a couple of ’em.

        1. avatar Leo Atrox says:

          I’m sorry. That’s not nice. I shouldn’t have typed that …

  2. avatar jwm says:

    Like the man says, it’ll reach an audience that normally doesn’t watch the gun and outdoors shows. Am I a fan of these people, no. But if it shows guns in a way that’s not hostile and venom filled I say go for it.

    1. avatar Todd S says:

      Well said.

  3. avatar Kvjavs says:

    At least she isn’t running around screaming how horrible guns are.

    1. avatar Ken says:

      . . . yet.

    Another Kardashian? They were, like, the bad guys on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, weren’t they?

    Not knowing who any of them are is just another of the joys of having no TeeVee.

    1. avatar SkyMan77 says:

      I believe you’re thinking Romulans…. I admire your blissfulness… My family is too far gone to kill our TeeVee, they’d mutiny for sure….

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        The Start Trek DS 9 peeps were the Cardassians. The enemy of the Cardassians were the Kardashians. They came from a place far, far away. I think it was Armenia.

        1. avatar SkyMan77 says:

          Thank you Ralph… I agree Sir and may I say, those Cardassians are some tough looking aliens.

    2. avatar Not Too Eloquent says:

      If it wasnt for football I wouldn’t own a TV.

      1. avatar bontai Joe says:

        Baseball for me.

        1. avatar Dyspeptic says:

          +1
          Baseball is the most sublime sporting endeavor mankind has produced and makes my sat. TV bill almost worth paying.

        2. avatar jwm says:

          Sorry dude, women’s beach volley ball is the only real sport.

      2. avatar nonnamous says:

        That and PS3 are the only things I use mine for

    3. avatar CinSC says:

      Spelled differently, yes:

      “The Cardassians are an extraterrestrial species in the Star Trek science fiction franchise. First introduced in the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Wounded”, the species originated on the fictional Alpha Quadrant planet Cardassia Prime. Cardassians were the dominant species in an interplanetary empire known as the Cardassian Union, ruling over other species, including the Bajorans, during the 24th century. The Cardassians later played a key role in the storyline of the series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as allies of the Dominion in the Dominion War. Several Cardassian characters, including Elim Garak and Gul Dukat, are prominently featured.”

      Nerds of the world, Unite!

        I particularly liked Andrew Robinson’s character, Garak, on Deep Space Nine. He was deliciously evil.

    4. avatar g says:

      CardASSians. Though Kim Kardashian certainly could change her name to the Star Trek bad guys and everyone would think it fitting.

  5. avatar CinSC says:

    Maybe this makes me a weirdo, but all I can think of when I look at those pics is “She’s gonna drop that thing in the drink. Get that rifle in a sling!”

    I agree with Rob. This helps mainstream guns, and that’s a good thing.

  6. avatar great unknown says:

    Is there anything worth seeing here other than the good trigger discipline in the lede photo?

  7. avatar Not Too Eloquent says:

    Pincus is becoming as ubiquitous as…the Kardashians!

  8. avatar freeport56 says:

    Did he push her overboard????

  9. avatar bontai Joe says:

    I didn’t know until now why I always liked Kloe more than her sister “what’s her name”. I have to agree, if it shows firearms and the shooting sports in a good light, any publicity is good publicity. Here is hoping that she continues with her training, and incorporates it into their “reality” show.

    1. avatar Derek Dauma says:

      Ex was a fan of the Kardashian show.

      Khloe was the only one I think I could actually stand to be around and talk to for more than 10 seconds.

  10. avatar Josh says:

    Your combat focus shooting link doesnt work…

  11. avatar Kendahl says:

    Look on the bright side. She isn’t Rosie O’Donnell.

    1. avatar Moonshine7102 says:

      With that heiffer, you’d have to look at the dark side. She blots out the sun.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Pincus upon seeing Rosie O’Donnell:

        “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

  12. avatar Dyspeptic says:

    The muumuu like apparel Miss Kardashian is wearing is hilariously inappropriate. What, no pearl necklace?
    Sartorial silliness aside, teaching a newbie how to shoot from a moving platform doesn’t seem like a good idea.

  13. avatar Greg Camp says:

    As easy as shooting fish in a barrel, and I’m talking about the girl. Myeh.

  14. avatar DDavis says:

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ……. MAKE TTAG A KARDASHIAN FREE ZONE IN THE FUTURE !!!!!

  15. avatar RIGHT! says:

    So this was a Holloween Themed gig? excelent casting

  16. avatar GS650G says:

    She is SO overdressed for the occasion

  17. avatar Human Being says:

    Winning!

  18. avatar Grumpy Old Man says:

    Well, I see she dressed for the occasion!

  19. Once a mainstream news org get’s this, they will be forced to cite this blog.

    PREPARE FOR NUBILE TRAFFIC!

    1. avatar Will says:

      Don’t worry too much. They’ll spin it as how dumb and stupid another Kardashian is acting in public by playing with evil deadly and dangerous guns (and maybe how she was lucky it didn’t jump up and bite her), without saying it…. if they give it more than 15 seconds air-time.

  20. avatar Mike123 says:

    Kudos for Rob Pincus reaching outside of the tribe to find new members.

    Although, I didn’t realize how un-free California has become. To go shooting you need to go into international waters, while being accompanied by two police officers and a gun specialist, and wearing black socks.

    On the positive side, Pincus didn’t have holes in his socks.

    1. avatar Rob Pincus says:

      we were off the coast of Florida.

  21. avatar Jwhite says:

    Scary to see them on the end of the boat like that… That’s how I lost all my guns

  22. avatar Dom says:

    Can we not have some pics of pretty girls?

    Why this fat kardashian pig?

  23. avatar mp says:

    Wolf!!?? For a (n) FFBF? puhleezeee….

  24. avatar John says:

    Woah, sweet beard!

    Chris Costa, who?

  25. avatar Alan Rose says:

    Training for pirates, or fishing for dinner?

  26. avatar Rob Pincus says:

    Interesting that there are so many negative comments.

    The fact is that, for all the TALK about expanding the ranks of gun owners and reaching younger people and more females, the kind of ignorant responses that some have offered here aren’t going to encourage a twenty-something girl who happens to follow the Kardashians to come to a shooting range and give it a try. In fact, some of the comments might downright chase them away from even being open to trying shooting.

    Biggest offenders here: Moonshine7102, Dom, DDavis, freeport56, Kardashianundo

    But, similarly retarded comments are being offered in other places that the pic has been posted as well.

    Whose side are you guys on??

    We’ll be discussing this topic (“gun people” chasing away potential new shooters) on Armed American Radio tonight…

    Why do gun owners not control every election held in this country you ask? Answer: Just read some of the above post.
