Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Dana All Laws

Those of you keeping score at home, get out your No. 2 pencils. Shirtless wanna-be white rapper? Check. Flat-billed cocked baseball cap? Right. Totally street ink? Fer sher. Unintelligible (other than the cursing) lyrics? Yep. Casually waved nickel plated nine? Uh huh. Add that all up using the current cultural calculus and you come up with…hold on…carry the seven…got it — insufferable douchebag. While it looks genuine enough, according to, there’s some debate as to whether it’s real or Memorex. If it actually happened, we hope he didn’t plug his mommy through the wall in the next room. And if Mr. All Laws will send us his address ([email protected]), we’ll be more than happy to send him the IGOTD trophy he so richly deserves.   [h/t DrVino]

    Looks like Elian’s closet…..

  2. avatar Matt G says:

    Same guy that did the pump shotgun ND a few years back? Thinking fake.

    1. avatar PeterK says:

      Dunno if same guy. Same fake atmo, though. No way is this real.

  3. Hard to say if it was fake or not….but judging by appearances, he does not strike me as a lad intelligent enough to know how to acquire blanks.

    I’ll vote: real.

    1. avatar DJ9 says:

      Fake (blank-firing weapon). Not enough recoil effect(s). There is a significant difference in recoil force between blanks and live ammo, and it usually cannot be disguised by a tight grip or other means. The frame of the pistol barely moved when it fired, despite the handgun being held in an awkward position, with the elbow completely unlocked.

      1. avatar lolinski says:

        I agree.

        During NDs people jump, mainly because they don’t expect it but also because they ain’t in a position to handle the recoil properly.

        You can see how much he was moved, not because of the “harsh” recoil of 7.62×39 but because he was relaxed and wasn’t expecting it.

  4. avatar Internet Guy says:

    Pretty sure it’s a blank firing pistol.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      Yep, me too. Blank.

      1. avatar Sammy says:

        Blank? I think they both are. The (w)rapper and the round.

        1. avatar bontai Joe says:

          I totally agree!

  5. avatar Frank Masotti says:

    Idiot that’s all I have to say on the subject.

  6. avatar Excedrine says:

    Blank-firing piece or not, he’s still an idiot.

    Don’t put your booger-hook on the bang switch unless and until you’re ready to destroy what you’re aiming at.

    1. avatar Defens says:

      Didn’t see a single thing in that room that would be missed if destroyed. I’d say “booger hook” away, dood.

      1. avatar PeterK says:

        I literally laughed out loud at that. Hilarious.

  7. avatar Ralph says:

    Three blanks — blank cartridge, blank look, blank between the ears. Very funny.

    1. avatar Col. Angus says:


  8. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

    fake …he did not flinch like if a real cap went off…it’s all in the eye and facial expression

  9. avatar Jimmy Wade says:

    Not sure if it’s fake or not, but all I can say is that it looks like the casing wasn’t ejected with much authority.

  10. avatar Mithras says:

    It’s an 8mm blank pistol made in Italy. You can get them here in the states for around 100 bucks.

    1. avatar Noishkel says:

      That’s kinda cool. But really for the extra $100 or so I’d just go get a real one on the used market.

  11. avatar Charles5 says:

    This guy has done several of these. Fake.

  12. avatar Nassion says:

    2 Reasons to conclude this:
    1: watch his hand at the end of the video. He visible tightens up his grip and then pulls the trigger. It’s not just a light brush either, you can see the trigger travel before the gun goes off.
    2: The video is cut off too soon. He should have a flinch response and in these videos the flinch response usually gets more hits than the ND. So if he cut out his flinch response (which would increase hits), and he wants to increase hits (why else post the video), the best logical conclusion is that there was no flinch response.

  13. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    How is his hat staying on his head? Duct tape?

    1. avatar Russ Bixby says:

      Gorilla Glue. Or spoo.

  14. avatar BillF says:

    Fake ND…. but the douche looks authentic enough.

  15. avatar DJ9 says:

    Another way to tell it is a blank-firing replica is by closely examining the pistol. If you freeze-frame at different spots, it is obviously missing the extractor and extractor cut which should be clearly visible on the right side of the slide, near the barrel hood. Also, the vast majority of nickel-plated, chrome-plated, or stainless-steel Beretta-style center-fire pistols will have a blue/black rear sight; the blank-firing replicas will have the rear sight plated to match the slide (as does the one in the video).

    1. avatar Nassion says:

      Its a mirror selfie, we can only see the left side of the slide.

      1. avatar DJ9 says:

        Well, THAT was a little bit embarrassing.

        Good catch and thanks for the correction, Nassion; while my experience with handguns runs fairly deep, my personal experience in the area of mirror-produced selfies is zilch.

        At least my point about the plated rear sight still stands…

  16. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Kinda gives undisciplined a whole new level o’ meanin’, don’t it?

  17. avatar M J J says:

    Another indication of a blank gun is the fact that the flash looks like it’s coming from the top of the gun. I’ve used many a gun like that in stage productions over the years.

  18. avatar Burnout says:

    That was some excellent writing! I LOL’d when after a suspenseful buildup and the carrying of the 7, the formula equaled Insufferable Douchebag. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I didn’t expect that. But hey, you can’t argue with math. Good stuff. This is one of the greatest web sites ever.

  19. avatar Maineuh says:

    Aw, suck. I totally wanted that to be the real deal.

  20. avatar ensitue says:

    The only thing lyrical about this is the Irony

  21. avatar cmeat says:

    looks like one of the two knuckleheads on the airplane in the jimmy john’s commercial.

  22. avatar 80 D says:

    In my line o’ work he’s what we call a fuh quad.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Translation to English, please?

      1. avatar g says:

        Keep saying “fuh quad” over and over again. Real fast.

        Sorta like how our troops kept wondering why Al Qaeda crazies were from Hawaii when they shouted “ALOHA SNACK BAR!!!”

        1. avatar jwm says:

          Fuck wad. Not you, g. Just sounding it out.

  23. avatar Anonymous says:

    Democrat. Total Democrat that had just taken a new interest on guns.

  24. avatar Swarf says:

    Meh. Anyone with a nickel plated gun deserves what they get.

  25. avatar Ray says:

    Too late to effectively plug his mom. Someone did that about 20 years ago and he’s the result.
