Pro Tip: Never Point a Gun At An Angry Russian

Perhaps the better way to put it: if you point a gun at an angry Russian, it’s probably best to shoot him until the threat stops. Because it ain’t gonna stop.

    well at least it looked like he was exercising good muzzle control. but his finger was in the trigger guard.

  3. avatar William says:

    Really don’t know what to say about that.

    I don’t know what the fvck I just watched, but why not just stay in your car and drive off when crazy guy starts to attempt to damage your car? You have a car, he does not. Laugh and wave as you drive off.

    1. avatar FedUp says:

      My first thought too, but upon reflection, I think he has a passenger, and when it looked like a good time to drive off, his passenger was standing by the back bumper and he probably didn’t want to abandon his friend to the crazy violent drunks.

    Someone please remind me what exactly is the difference between this two-legged animal and other four-legged animals? Or was that evolutionary missing link just identified?

      The consumption of ethanol and/or meth.

    This is why you never leave food in your car when you park in bear country.

      This is why you never leave vodka in your car when you park in Russia. FIFY.

        Are you incinerating that he was under the alfluence of incohol?

      We have a winner!

      1. Obama whines about white people locking their doors as he walks by their car. Vladamir Putin just curb stomps the car. Yet another contrast between the two World Leaders.

    Russians strapped gas cans to their chests and covered them in grenades. They then ran towards German tanks.
    russians are a special kind of nuts.. The kind that I would not like to piss off.

    If you’re gonna shoot a Russian shoot him a lot.

    1. avatar SteveInCO says:

      I’m part Sicilian and part Russian. Yet some people persist in pissing me off.

      Russians were the people who finally “cracked” the problem of steppe nomad horse archers, which had been an issue for thousands of years from China to Central Europe. Don’t mess with them.

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Do tell (more details) … I have never heard of this.

          Fascinating history, but long story short: Build a fort in enemy territory and dare them to attack your vastly superior force in a time and place of YOUR choosing; or if they won’t attack, send out patrols to kill their horses, women, and children. When they retreat, build another fort closer, and repeat.

          Kind of like the Indian wars in the 19th century American West.

      >> Russians strapped gas cans to their chests and covered them in grenades. They then ran towards German tanks.

      It’s not something that happened as often as the legends would make you believe, but yes, it did happen.

      However, a more important take-away from the story is not that people did it. It’s that they had to, because it was the only way to stop that tank – because all they had were grenades, and not any proper AT weapons.

      So the lesson here is, if you attack Russia, make sure you have a lot of tanks, and don’t forget to give them a solid cover with infantry, mkay?

    Um… why don’t you just run his azz over comrade? I like when he tries to kick the door off…

    1. avatar jwm says:

      And he’s wearing flip flops.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Ladas are made from Russian toilet paper. Rough on the ass but easy on the flip-flops.

        1. avatar Helmsman says:

          Russian, well, soviet, toilet paper is a well creased newspaper.

  9. avatar Lincx says:

    90% sure it was blank firing only pistol…
    See in Russia real guns are banned for civilian use (well some still have them)..
    However blank firing ones can be bought easily.. So lot of people carry blank firing guns…

    1. avatar Helmsman says:

      It is more likely so called traumatic gun. Those are permitted.

    2. avatar int19h says:

      More likely that it’s one of those “personal protections” guns, like Osa, which fire rubber projectiles.

    There is something magical about this video.

    A guy shoots at another guy – and instead of people cowering in fear and scrambling away like liberal American victimized metrosexual roaches in the light of reality, more people, unarmed mind you, come to his aid. His aid. It’s awesome. This guarantees this video is not in the US.

    Meanwhile this guy goes totally apeshit in this guy’s car.

    An awesome humorous video for this evening. Thanks TTAG.

  11. avatar ihatetrees says:

    I was half paying attention while reading another monitor… Initially, I thought it was a GTA-knockoff video game and that click-bait Saturday was in Full Effect at TTAG.

    But then.. Wow, this is REAL. And scary and awesome. And like jwm commented above, the guy is wearing flip flops.

  12. avatar jwtaylor says:

    Does it mean I’m old that after watching this all I could think was how tiring that all looked?

  13. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    No idea what prompted all that, but that response is subhuman. Shoot him in the face and end that menace to society.

  14. avatar jwm says:

    Flip flops. The official shoes of those that can’t be bothered to give one, let alone two fucks.

  15. avatar Stinkeye says:

    Shouldn’t this be filed under “Should Have Been A Defensive Gun Use”?

  16. avatar Vendetta says:

    How am I the only one who thought maybe just maybe the guy messing up th e Lada was not the one who started this shitstorm? Based on the randoms who come to his aid and then proceed to help him mess the car up (Russian street justice) Im gonna stick with that theory. Im never going to know the real story anyway.

    1. avatar Randy J. says:

      Same here. I’d love to know the rest of the story.

  17. avatar Other Tony says:

    I don’t know which was better, the soundtrack or that guy’s flip flops.

    1. avatar Phil in NYC says:

      That’s “The Entertainer”, by Scott Joplin. Great stuff.

  18. avatar Bunny says:

    Guy shot him with a gas pistol. These are very common in Russia for self defense. Less than lethal defense tools…

  19. avatar nuzelimav says:

    In Soviet Russia real pistols are illegal for citizens. “Toy” guns are legal:
    (i) “traumatic” less than lethal pistols with rubber bullets and 91 joules energy limit. Useful to make attacker more angry (as in the video),
    (ii) gas pistol,
    (iii) electroshock weapon with limit.

  20. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    In all seriousness, would the damage to the roof and springing the door hinge end up totaling that car? I don’t see how you could repair the roof or door hinges without removing material and welding replacements … which would compromise the structural (crash) integrity of the car.

  21. avatar Brian cannot escape. The evil one is ruler of this world! says:

    I would have just dropped groups of colored blocks on him until he blinked a few times and disappeared back to wherever he came from.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Brian did escape. Reality.

  22. avatar Swarf says:

    “Angry Russian”

    But you repeat yourself…

  23. avatar DMD says:

    After seeing this clip I now know how my Russian grandfather Yaakov Tzvi’s temper, rage, and fight enabled him fight his way out of Russia, Siberia, and Manchuria and across Europe all the way to our beloved USA in 1905!!! DMD
