What’s Wrong With This Picture: I Got Nothing Edition

For once, I’m speechless.


  1. avatar Jolly Roger That says:

    Demonstrating the difference between an organized military and an “organized” military.

    1. avatar Tom says:

      So the guy doing the shooting gets applauded, no love for the guy holding the pots.

  2. avatar Danny says:

    William Tehhallah

    1. avatar DJ9 says:


      Good one!

    2. avatar Jim Barr says:

      Don’t know which is worse, being shot at, or having to hold those damn pots out with arms outstretched. My arms hurt.

  3. avatar Steve says:

    Just another day At Yeager’s.

    1. avatar neal harding says:

      you ben to my garpa home are you a yeager yeager on moms side gladwin michigan

      1. avatar Andrew says:


        1. avatar Nicks87 says:

          Yes Andrew, James Yeager is a moron.

  4. avatar benny says:

    Steve wins 12 Internets for his comment win

  5. avatar PGT says:

    Guess you guys have never seen this one, eh? Spetnaz Alpha Team confidence drills (Russia – where 30% losses of hostages is considered acceptable)

    1. avatar Phil says:

      I just spotted that one the other night kinda left me speechless

      1. avatar PGT says:

        inorite? over the top.

        1. avatar Phil says:

          The simulated head shoot is what creeped me out

      2. avatar neiowa says:

        Love the ND at 3:49. Fing commies. Now these clowns are “training” in Ukraine.

        1. avatar Steve Truffer says:

          That wasn’t an ND. They’re supposed to shoot at the feet of people shoving them. The noise is a good deterrent, and so is a round in the foot. He shot more or less straight down because instructors don’t like it when you ventilate their foot.

    2. avatar JasonM says:

      TTAG posted this video earlier this year.

  6. avatar Jeff Sabelko says:

    Hey, at least he had gloves on for safety.

    1. avatar Rick says:

      He failed this morning’s uniform inspection.

  7. avatar C says:

    Sometimes you just have to put safety third.

    1. avatar Guy says:

      That’s not fair. The rule is ‘Be sure of your target and what’s behind it.’ It doesn’t say anything about who’s under it.

      1. avatar C says:

        A loophole!

    2. avatar EagleScout87 says:

      +1 for the Mike Rowe quote!

  8. avatar Mike says:

    Wow, that looks like fun! Maybe we’ll try it at the gun club this weekend

    …. then again, umm, NO

    1. avatar Model66 says:

      Well…..maybe if you belong to Club Gitmo!

  9. avatar IthinkIhaveaProblem says:

    His mom is going to be pissed that was their good china!

    1. avatar Paul53 says:

      Ruined the china and missed the target every time!

  10. avatar cogline says:

    I am assuming he is a prisoner of war and I sure am glad it wasn’t the cameraman doing the shooting.

  11. avatar Ralph says:

    This is actually an New York Police Department training exercise and all shots were aimed at center mass.

    1. avatar Wielsucker (@Wielsucker) says:

      Those guys even screw up a firing squad!

    2. avatar JasonM says:

      NYPD would have gotten a round over a wall and hit a civilian.

  12. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    That’s some good shootin”. Wait does that count towards dying in battle? I thought it had to be your enemy to get those 72 virgins?

  13. avatar Rick the Bear says:

    Try viewing this video from LASD in 1936 and you’ll think that these guys are being safe.

    1. avatar Brian in WI says:

      Those newspaper delivery ladies are lucky these guys weren’t the ones shooting all willy nilly at them during the Dorner scare…although I guess these cops didn’t shoot anybody either.

  14. Looks like a Yeager training class to me.

  15. avatar Jay1987 says:

    ok I’ll try this again minus the Team America quote. That dude is a horrible shot he missed the terrorist completely. His tactics are all wrong too he didn’t utilize the Iraqi offhand shooting technique (take full size AK or similar with fixed stock or hand gun, run between two buildings firing on full auto or really quickly while looking 180 degrees from where you are firing). /sarc off

    Actually this shows the difference between a professional and proficient fighting force and a bush league gaggle of armed idiots (this would be the latter)

    1. avatar Brian in WI says:



  16. avatar BillF says:

    Hey, hold my beer–I wanna try too!

  17. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

    the guy sitting on the chair getting shot at drew the short straw on that one…..wow

  18. avatar Nicks87 says:

    Allahu Ackbar indeed!

  19. avatar T-DOG says:

    Must be one of those “building trust exercises” we see work places do time to time.

  20. avatar Don says:

    An outwardly healthy and athletic woman I knew had the first and last seizure of her life while she happened to be jogging next to a pond, fell in and drowned.

    A person trains to reduce their risk. Taking risks while training doesn’t make sense.

    1. avatar Don says:

      The probability that a person who trains frequently will have an unexpected seizure (or sneeze or have a muscle spasm) while engaged in their frequent activity is probably far greater than that person finding themselves in a situation where they need whatever “skill” doing a stunt like this is supposed to give them. So training like this is actually counterproductive at mitigating their risk. It’s just macho bullsh!t.

  21. avatar PavePusher says:

    Meh. Darwin awaits…..

  22. avatar Southern Cross says:

    I’ll bet he’s hoping it isn’t a squib load or the shooter drops a shot.

    The glorious Red Army, where 50+% casualties in a chem warfare exercise was considered acceptable.

  23. avatar v v ind says:

    Guys hand at 1:24?

  24. avatar boardsnbikes says:

    Proper backstop.

  25. avatar John in Ohio says:

    Good shooting and a target holder with nerves of steel. All consenting adults engaged in voluntary activities.

  26. avatar Aaron says:

    I am offended at this video. Looks like they made the black guy hold the tea pots.

  27. avatar dh34 says:

    Never be the last guy to show up for the morning’s training evolution.

  28. avatar Gregolas says:

    Who are they applauding at the end? The shooter, or the shootee?

  29. avatar Larry Perkins says:

    So, you guys should check out the history surrounding the “Kentucky Riflemen” of the Revolutionary War.

    If it weren’t for those [per JAY1087’s definition, not mine] “Bush League Gaggles of Armed Idiots” we might not have that “extra” holiday in July.

    These guys are pikers by comparison.

  30. avatar Yossarian says:

    This William Tell stuff doesn’t bother me. You’ve all seen knife throwing acts, with the person strapped to the spinning target – Right? Sure, it’s more dangerous than most people would go in for, but then so is jumping 14 Greyhound buses on a Harley Davidson or skydiving from outer space. There will always be people who go in for that sort of thing, and I say to them, “Yes, Bubba, I will hold your beer.”

    1. avatar EagleScout87 says:


  31. avatar BDub says:

    Displays like this are generally a symptom of cultures where life is still viewed as cheap. They have the trappings of development, but social attitudes about such things as justice, risk and death lag behind.

  32. avatar Brent says:

    Well..first off NONE of their weapons had flashlights…I mean come on!! How do we take anyone serious if they dont have a Tacticool flashlight attached. Then..Camo. Seriously…that is how you know if your gun is truly accurate..it has camo on it! Finally, they were all needing the proper safety equipment..like approved tacticool boots! smh..amateurs…*

    * Please note sarcasm…in the whole statement above..except for the flash light..LOL

  33. avatar Pashtun6 says:

    Pakistani SSG, aka their countries SOF, aka the guys who train the Taliban and who are typically Taliban fighters as well

  34. avatar IdahoPete says:

    Could we see that again with the shooter using a 12ga, loaded with #4 buckshot?

  35. avatar C Wesley Bryant says:

    Take off and nuke the entire site from orbit…its the only way to be sure.

  36. avatar esitue says:

    Where’s Billary when you need him…her…it

  37. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

    OK, for all of you who have your panties in a knot, might I remind you of the days when there was a petite woman, all of 4’11”, shooting stuff out of her husband’s/manager’s hands, cigars out of his lips, apples off his head, etc with .22’s and such?

    Phoebe Ann Moses. Might want to google her.

  38. avatar doesky2 says:

    We should strongly encourage all Islamists to do regular and repeated practice like this every day.
    They also should practice after hashing up the hookah in case they ever recive a SEAL team raid after a hookah fest.
    Accidents and death should be viewed as acceptable byproduct of a well trained team.
    The team should practice until there is only one person remaining so that they know who is best.

    1. avatar John in Ohio says:

      There can be only one!
