Vitaly Kryuchin Plays the GLOCKenspiel

We’ve posted about Vitaly Kryuchin‘s absolutely amazing point shooting skills before, but apparently he has some musical chops as well. Witness him make sweet music with a handful of .22 LR-converted GLOCKs, a live band, and what I’d have to call (quite correctly and not sarcastically, mind you) a giant GLOCKenspiel, in the video above.

    And then I see this and realise what an absolute waste my life has been.

    Well played, sir. Well played…

    I wanna hear him play Van Halen.

    (I actually heard Van Halen in an *elevator* a while back…)

      Sorry bro, I woulda killed myself if I was locked in a metal box and force to listen to Van Halen. Thank goodness for EDC, I always have an out.

      Whoooaaa-living on a praaaay-yaaar whooooa-waaa you give lowuvvv abayad naaaame.

      Ugh. Was that part of SEAR school or were you a POW?

        That’s Bon Jovi you just quoted, not Van Halen. You know nothing, scrub.

      2. avatar jwtaylor says:

        What the actual fu(k?
        Did you just confuse Aerosmith and Bon Jovi?
        Choke yourself.

          Instead of arguing over crap I suggest you all embrace better music.

          Van Halen? Christ have you never heard of Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers or Gov’t Mule?

          Hell, I’ll leave you with a weak tasting of better rock:

        2. avatar CarlosT says:

          Led Zeppelin, you say?

        3. avatar ORCON says:

          Thanks for getting in on the joke, jwtaylor. ?

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          That’s actually Van Haggar…

          Edit- Oops, this is Van Haggar:

    I have always said and was taught that sights on a pistol are utterly useless for self defense. Point and shoot. No time to aim. This musician marksman solidly drives that point home. His style of making music is exactly how I practice shooting.

    Good show.

    A true master of his craft indeed. I want to see him do this for Christmas songs. Nothing says Christmas time like the sound of bells and the smell of gun smoke!

    Who can translate the Russian Jeff Cooper quotation? Also, is there a significance to the Russian film clip? I take it “Murku” is a Russian folk song.

    Altogether quite a virtuoso performance! Anyone count the rounds to determine if there was editing?

    This was great!

    I particularly like the ‘Moscow reloads’!!

  11. avatar Moshe says:

    This guy should be hired to play at Bolshoi orchestra.

    I could watch Scnlidher’s List and still be happy after reading this.
