    OMG! A “B” western wannabe!

  2. Nate Says:

    what the hell was THAT? A new action hero is born…Karate Pistolero, man with no skills.

  3. Josh G Says:

    That’s not his only video … hopefully he goes to the shooting range, alone.

  4. Jeff the Baptist Says:

    Truly a blackbelt in the Gun Kata.

  5. Mad Man Says:

    Geeze, I was truly afraid this idiot would shoot himself, though once might cure him of this stupidity.

  6. Retardo Says:

    That’s the same guy who attacks target stands in his back yard with a sword.

    But don’t hate, guys. If this dude were training SWAT teams, there’d be fewer dead dogs and more laughter in the world.

  8. Nate Says:

    That guy is AWESOME in the backyard videos….oh man…I’m teaing up soooooo much laughter. When the targets finally rise up and attack us back, I want him on my team, no cardboard man will survive!

  9. RuffRidr Says:

    I half expected him to pop back into the camera frame at the end and pop three more bullets into the cardboard, just to be sure.

  10. 2yellowdogs Says:

    When he puts a hole through one of his kidneys, I know someone who needs the other one. OK?

  11. Boondoggie Says:

    Rule 2. Plenty of muzzle sweep going on to make that video.

  12. The Duck Says:

    The second How Not To Do It Video, I’ve seen this week, and it’s only Monday……..

  13. zenmastertaz Says:

    Wonder if he even knows where those upward shots are going to… It doesn’t seem if the target is sturdy enough to stop them.

  14. JJR Says:

    Needs David Attenborough commentary track: “And here we see the elusive Mall Ninja in its native habitat…”

  15. Pete Says:

    Wow. He almost shot his left arm clean off.

  16. Rabbit Says:

    2Y.D. hit it before I saw it. This goob is the reason the design template for mammals has redundancy in kidney function.

    He’s gonna lose a kidney or spleen if he keeps that shit up, or worse (maybe, maybe not) he’ll become closely intimate with how it feels (or doesn’t, anymore) to be a T5 paraplegic.

  17. Miguel Says:

    JJR, you owe me a new laptop… 🙂

  18. pdb Says:

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

  19. Ambulance Driver Says:

    Dubya. Tee. Eff.

  20. ParatrooperJJ Says:

    The saddest part is that he probably thinks that he is ready for Delta selection.

  21. Bobby Says:

    Now, for a dignitity retention drill…

  22. BobG Says:

    Hell, as close as he was, it would have been easier to pistol-whip the target.

  23. ASM826 Says:

    Here he is with another weapon

  24. Burke Says:

    This guy is going a long way in convincing me some gun control might be necessary <–sarcasm. However, even if this guy didn't have a gun, he would be driving on the road, using a kitchen knife, or breeding–all being equally as dangerous.

  25. Wes S. Says:

    Looks like a future client for Ambulance Driver…

    …Any chance somebody could put that to music? Lady Gaga, perhaps, or some other pop/dance act…?

  26. Brad Says:

    As stupid as that drill looks, watch the muzzle as he sweeps it behind him. It looks like the real risk is to his legs more than his backside or left arm.

    I’m not trying to defend the drill, I’m just saying it isn’t quite as stupid as it appears at first viewing. The drill still strikes me as an amazing waste of training time for a dubious tactic.

  27. JD Says:

    This is good stuff for the anti-gunners to email around.
    OMG! my gut hurts from laughing @ this joker, I can’t stop replaying it.

  28. Rivrdog Says:

    The proper drills. Two required to practice, “red gun” use is mandatory.

    Gun retention, as I was taught it, is mainly done IN THE HOLSTER. You are practicing defending against a gun grab from your holster. Force is applied on the grabber’s wrist, DOWNWARD, if he has already acquired a grip on the holstered weapon. You can apply more force downward than he can upward. Once locked up, you spin away from the direction his elbow operates, and he has to release his grip. You end by breaking the grip, drawing and firing. You fire because the grabber has demonstrated an attempt to kill you (attempting to acquire a deadly weapon by force is considered an attempt to kill). Note that it is important to wear your gun in a holster that attaches well to a strong belt.

    Protecting against an unarmed assailant grabbing your drawn gun is easier: said assailant is ALSO exhibiting intent to commit (your) murder, so you step back, using two controlled steps (these steps are part of any basic kata practiced in the dojo), and shoot him.

    That is all.

  29. Mikee Says:

    My two brothers and I used to practice pretty much the same drill in the video – when we were 5, 7 and 9 years old, respectively – and we used single action cap guns for the shooting. As I recall, those “revolver cap guns had about 50 shots before required reloads.

  30. Lesane Says:

    I thought he was going to lose some fingers on the business end of his pistol in this one! This is Anti-Gun PSA waiting to happen.

  31. Paul Says:

    Hold on guys….

    Now I watched his technique several times:

    a) when in retention he kept his off hand on his chest so it would not be shot.

    b) he actually did keep the gun in the correct retention position to.

    c) the only possible sweep he did was his legs, and I am not sure he did that.

    d) what I don’t know is if his finger was the trigger while slipping the pistol behind his back.

    e) I bet some brass went into his ribs though!

    All in all it was funny. And actually most of his gun handling skills were fine, if ‘interestingly’ done.
    It only looks scarry cause it went fast.

    A future Darwin Award winner.

  33. Jerry Says:

    Waaaaaaay too many Monty Python movies.

  34. Caleb Says:

    Paul, it looks scary because it’s sloppy. There’s a lot of unnecessary waving about of the gun and what appears to be a heartfelt desire to perform gun kata.

    His other videos are just as retarded if not worse.

  35. cargosquid Says:

    W.T.F? Evidence that some people should not have access to the internet. Because if he wasn’t being filmed, do ya think he would do that? Having seen this and one other of his “training videos,” I can safely say that this is another thing that should be done “in private.”

  36. Paul Says:

    But Caleb,

    Was it UNSAFE? That is as long as only he was present and no one endangered, was it unsafe? Weird and silly looking but was it unsafe?

    I practice hip shooting very very often from t-shirt concealment (no, not behind-the-back stuff like the video) and flipping the t-shirt one handed has to be done just right or else… And I spin, pivot, move off line, etc… In fact, go look at some of Gabe’s stuff he teaches on this (I think it’s also on YouTube.)

    So again,was he unsafe?

  37. blounttruth Says:

    Darwin was foaming at the mouth on that one!

  38. DirtCrashr Says:

    The behind-the-back swivel-hips stuff struck me as unsafe even on a dance floor.

  39. jbrock Says:

    What is up with all this “stand on the goblin’s feet and rip a clip in him” stuff? At that range, wouldn’t something from Estwing make a lot more sense than anything from Glock/HK/whomever? I thought having enough distance to avoid getting the BG’s blood on you was one of the main selling points of a pistol, anyway.

  40. Warthog Says:

    There’s a gene pool just begging for some chlorine.

  41. v Says:

    please, please, please, tell me he doesn’t live in kalifornia…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
