I know this is a long video, but the cringes you’ll feel (as these LASD marksmen shoot chalk from each others’ fingers and cigars from each others’ mouths) will be worth it . . .
These were clearly brave men from a tough age, but why would these cops risk disfigurement and death for the sake of a movie? Maybe they just thought it was good clean fun, or maybe they just didn’t have the benefit of all the knowledge (learned from tragic experience) that guides our gun-safety doctrine today.
Either way this colorized vintage video shows gun-handling so dangerous it’s almost NSFW, but they’re still better than FPSRussia: at least they used ear pro (at 5:30).
