“Because I’m 18, I’m not allowed to gamble and I’m not allowed to drink, but I am allowed to go to strip clubs and shoot machine guns, so that’s why I’m here.” – Eagle Scout John Kovacs, Machine gun tourism in Sin City [at cnn.com]


  1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

    Save the money used for the clubs and buy more ammo!!!

    1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

      Ps I took a day off work to go to the range. I’m hoping to do some full auto fun at a range that rents out a Daniel Defense m4 today!!!

      1. avatar T says:

        Cool! Where is this range?

        1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

          MI about 25 miles from Detroit.

    2. avatar Hannibal says:

      For the price of ammo you could get more than a lapdance and it might last longer.

      1. avatar Raul Ybarra says:

        Yeah… might last longer, but not necessarily in a good way. (How do you spell STD?)

        1. avatar Bova says:

          You put an S at the beginning, a D at the end, and then put a T in the middle. TA-DA!!!!

    3. avatar Cliff H says:

      As I recall, at his age, “should I shoot a machine gun/Should I look at naked ladies” was a difficult choice to make. Given sufficient resources, choose one in daylight and the other after it’s too dark to shoot anymore.

      That’s my kind of Eagle Scout!

      1. avatar C says:

        If the MG is of sufficient caliber, the results are the same.

  2. avatar FortWorthColtGuy says:

    Someone has their priorities straight. 🙂

    1. avatar 505markf says:

      There is hope for the young!

      1. avatar Accur81 says:

        Took my youngest son – also becoming an Eagle Scout – deer hunting last year. He’ll continue to shoot with me, and is in serious danger of becoming a serious enthusiast of firearms and freedom. The future is bleak, but not completely lost.

        1. avatar Gregolas says:

          Hearty congrats on the Eagle rank. Sounds like he’s a fine young man and you’re a great Dad.

  3. avatar T says:

    As we speak anti’s everywhere are having heart attacks.

    1. avatar 1911A1 says:

      And God smiled….

  4. avatar jwm says:

    Legally old enough to die in some foreign shithole at the behest of some fat pervert of a pol but not old enough to buy a drink or a handgun. Sounds real familiar to me. I guess there really isn’t anything new under the sun.

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      War is old men talking and young men dying.

      1. avatar lolinski says:

        Nihil novi sub sole

    2. avatar Cliff H says:

      And no one points out that the 18 year old girls working at the club cannot buy alcohol or a pistol either, but they can dance naked for money and if they wanted go with this gentleman to shoot machine guns, as long as they don’t charge him for their company…

    3. avatar neiowa says:

      Obuma isn’t fat. Looks to be syphilitic but not fat.

  5. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    That’s a fun little store.

  6. avatar Robert Farago says:

    A strip club machine gun store? Although I reject reducing women to sexual objects, it does sound like fun.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Once again. No liquids near the interwebz thingie is a life saver.

    2. avatar chuck (hates nj) says:

      Hot brass and fine ass.

      1. avatar Andrew says:

        Or a combo brothel/Fine gun parlour:

        Fine Brass, Hot Ass.

    3. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

      Guns ‘n Jugs

      1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

        OMG – I am gonna trademark that!!

      2. avatar JR LORENCZ says:

        Ass ‘n Brass

      3. avatar Pulatso says:

        Sounds like an Andy Sedaris movie.

    4. avatar John L. says:

      And just think about stripper clips..!

    5. avatar PhoenixNFA says:

      We considered that awhile back

      The “ATF” store.

      Gun range/store with machine gun rentals. If you have a m2HB and want to shoot it, bring it. M134? No problem.
      Club (strip?) alcohol very served.
      Cigar bar/weed place (if it ever becomes legal)

      Not enough funding 🙁

      1. avatar Sarcasm says:

        Especially considering you’d almost immediately need to expand into a resort so that the people who would never leave would not be sleeping on the floor…

      2. avatar neiowa says:

        Give them tree grass then put them down range?

    6. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

      Reducing women to sexual objects or reducing men to slobbering fools? Either way I think it was God that made us that way, so why fight it?

  7. avatar Don says:

    A strip club where you can shoot machine guns? Sweet!

    1. avatar Drew says:

      Shit! That’s Friday night in hotlanta!

      1. avatar Pulatso says:

        Or any night in Tampa.

  8. avatar Roll says:

    Save the money for ammo, wimminz come and go, your gun will stay with you as long as you want it.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      Careful mixing them, you might lose one…

    2. avatar Cliff H says:

      Yes, but…in Las Vegas he is only RENTING the machine gun, and the girls. Either way he goes home with less money and nothing but a lot of fond memories.

  9. avatar Tom says:

    Boobs and bullets?
    Hooters and shooters?
    Strips and clips?
    Trying to think of a pun off the word “bang”…

    1. avatar David says:


      It’s the drink favored most by astronauts 🙂

    2. avatar unknown says:

      Bang and poontang?

      1. avatar Jon in NC says:


    3. avatar blahpony says:

      Stripper clips.

    4. avatar Andrew says:

      There is a combo “adult” novelty store and “smoke shop” near my work.

      I really want to have it renamed to “Thongs and Bongs”.

    5. avatar Drew says:

      Hang & bang… For the ladies.

      1. avatar Tom says:

        Guns & Buns!

  10. avatar Michael says:

    My son is getting 10 rounds of.50bmg for his 18th birthday next month and he is going to launch them through a borrowed M107A1. He doesn’t know it yet but he did ask to shoot the .50 at the local range which is only 25yds. I arranged to have him shoot on a farm near us. I think he will be thrilled.

    1. avatar Rambeast says:

      1. avatar miserylovescompany says:

        Ten just might not be enough, sir…


        1. avatar anonymous says:

          Ten just might not be enough, sir…

          Turn it up to 11.

        2. avatar Cliff H says:

          Priming the pump, as it were. Be very certain to install a shut-off valve somewhere on that line.

    2. avatar Accur81 says:

      That’s badass!

      May I humbly recommend plastic water jugs with food coloring?

  11. avatar jimmyjames says:

    Sex, guns and Rock-n-Roll…

  12. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    Boy, stay of away from strip clubs, you’ll only end up with empty pockets and a hard… you know.

    And, even if you get to one home, they’re all crazy as sh*t house rats, don’t let that crazy into your life, it’s not worth it.

    Buy the guns and shoot the ammo, it’s a way better investment

  13. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

    “Man, I just want to grow up!”

    There’s the punch line, do you remember the joke?

    1. avatar ropingdown says:

      Yep. Mad Magazine. Two kids sitting on the stairs watching their parents and friends act like complete idiots at a party.

      One says to the other “I can’t wait to grow up…so I can act like a kid.”

  14. avatar Rhinotx says:


  15. avatar JackieO says:

    No wonder he’s an Eagle Scout. Mom is that apple pie?

  16. avatar peirsonb says:

    If The Gun Store would start selling Ammunition-brand ammunition it would officially be my favorite place on the planet….

  17. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    If there’s one thing that rivals the stupidity of the unconstitutional assault on gun rights it’s the efforts to eradicate underage drinking. A few years ago around here they passed a law that in order to purchase a keg you had to wait 20 minutes for someone to copy your DL# and personal information in a log book and slap a bar code on the keg. So now they can track a keg but they can’t track 6 cases of beer or a few bottles of Jack Daniels, so what’s the point – to inconvenience law abiding citizens?

    The other day, after standing in line for 40 minutes to check out at Walmart, they wouldn’t let me buy beer because my 42 year old wife left her purse in the car and didn’t have her ID with her. If there’s two people in line you have to have two IDs now, even if they’ve been legal to drink for longer than they weren’t. I just left my shit there and left. So what if instead of my 42 year old wife I had my 10 year old daughter? What if I left my 42 year old wife in the car and went in without her? Do you have to leave your children in the car now when you go shopping? It’s easier now for a teenager to score a bag of pot or even meth than it is to get beer. I don’t personally view that as an improvement.

    This man is 18. He can vote, he can die for his country, if he misbehaves he’ll be tried as an adult – give this man a beer and a gun and leave him the hell alone.

    1. avatar JoshtheViking says:


      Personally, I don’t drink hardly at all, but the laws reguarding alcohol are stupid. Drinking (as with gun ownership) should be about personal preference and personal responsiblity, not an overbearing government holding your hand in a death grip.

      1. avatar lolinski says:

        I dont drink at all (bad drinking community, expensive + religion) but I find many of the alcohol laws stupid.

        Instead of trying to solv ethe problem through brute force you should rather focus on educating youth (no one likes waking up in a ditch while asking themselves why their rectum hurts).

    2. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

      Well, you know how this state of affairs happened, right?

      We let a bunch of braying nags dictate public policy. The “Mothers Against Drunk Driving” crowd are now set on prohibition, and their next move is to try to reduce the DUI limit to 0.05 BAC. Even a 200 lbs. man like me would need to chill out for an hour or more after drinking one 6% ABV beer to be certain of blowing under 0.05%, and that’s what they want.

      The surest way to regain our freedom these days is to tell these busybody females to shut up and cease trying to hoodwink the public into believing that because they’ve given birth that they have any particularly clueful insight into public policy. If we had dissected and refuted MADD’s nonsense in the 80’s, we wouldn’t be dealing with MAIG today. The whole “I have a uterus, hear me roar!” trope would be be null and void.

      1. avatar Jus Bill says:

        And these same perfectly sober MADD hags are the ones that wander all over the road while driving or step in front of busses because they can’t put their iSh!t down and concentrate on what they’re supposed to be doing. I’m guessing they’re all in for legalizing pot, too…

      2. avatar neiowa says:

        Add in the typical slavish progressive Eurocentric idol worship. Their BAC is this they we must copy.

    3. avatar neiowa says:

      Apparently you’re wearing your old fart button. Tell us about the progressives lowering the Constitution establish voting age from 21 to 18. Think thru the intent and result of giving the moronic babyboomer potheads the vote.

      Sending 18-21 old young men (forget about the troopettes) off to war may or may not be smart but what they think of it has no relevance.

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        It’s nice to know you think I’d be capable of winning over the affections of a woman half my age, but I am in fact a middle aged fart. Irregardless, you’re either a man or a boy. A hundred years ago, by the age of 18 you’d held down a job for 4 years since you graduated the 8th grade and were a man capable of supporting a wife and family. Today we breed beta male pajama boys who’s biggest concern is staying on their momma’s insurance until their 26. Our kids will live up to our expectations. Sometimes less, but never more. We infantilize them, then bitch about them living in our basement when they’re 30.

  18. avatar Tomy Ironmane says:

    Machine guns are cheaper than strippers… just sayin.

    1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

      Still, strippers are cheaper than wives.

      1. avatar peirsonb says:

        “Honey, I can’t afford NOT to keep you around”

        And then the fight started….

  19. avatar Ralph says:

    If I had a son, he’d look like . . . okay, he wouldn’t look like that kid, but you get the point. I’d be proud of my Eagle Scout. POTUS would be proud of his street thug.

  20. avatar HiPlanesDrifter says:

    ” . . . .but I am allowed to go to strip clubs and shoot machine guns, so that’s why I’m here.”

    Strip clubs & machine guns . . . where Shooters & Hooters meet.

  21. avatar Samuel Leoon Suggs says:

    He’s not allowed too buy machine guns so what’s the issue? I mean it’s an awsome quote, but i don’t get pearl clutching.

  22. avatar Michael says:

    Remember seeing an interview with a British couple who were on vacation in America and had just come out of a gun range were they rented guns. Typical British response “loved it”, “great fun”, “can’t do this back home”, “not shot a gun before”.
    Then they were asked what they do for a living, “We are Police Officers”

  23. avatar Raul Ybarra says:


    … a .50BMG lap dance?

    Lubed or not?

  24. avatar Salty Bear says:

    Good job, guy. Brand new Eagle scout just defecates all over the Scout Law with his remark about strip clubs. You are the face of Scouting, and this is how you represent yourself? Like a common frat boy? If I ever saw you in uniform I’d rip your Eagle patch right off.
