You may remember Gersh Kuntzman as the New York Daily News writer whose account of his first encounter with a modern sporting rifle chronicled in our post The Dumbest “I Shot an Assault Rifle!” Article in the History of the World Ever. “The recoil bruised my shoulder,” Kuntzman complained. “The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.”
Mr. Kuntzman’s account received the ridicule it so rightly deserved. Rather than emerging from the firearms fraternity’s feedback humbled, Mr. Kuntzman seems to feel enobled by the ensuing approprobrium. Hence the images above, proudly posted on imgur.com after receiving a custom holster from an, um, admirer. Regardless of his anti-gun animus and less-than-manly reaction to a soft-shooting rifle, you gotta give the man credit for rolling with the punches. Don’t you?
