“Stop Touching It!”

No, this is NOT about what you thought.

It’s about SAFETY.

Most of the gun-friendly venues I’ve visited in recent years require clearing of weapons before entrance.  Most gun shops, for example.  Some even have a ballistic barrel bunker filled will sand to accomplish this.  ‘For safety‘.  Some gun shows even require nylon zip ties post clearance, if one intends to bring the firearm into the show!

I remember a time.  (cocks head sideways, looks skyward, pensively) when all that was required in most gun shows and shops was don’t touch it.

The Duck reminded me of this, with an attached video showing a young man very proud of his new Ithaca Model 37.  He cannot stop fondling it. (Freudian gun equivalency jokes here)

You can guess what happens next.  At about 2:50 in.

Booger hooks, bang switch.  Period.  If you must dry-practice, remove all ammo to another room, first.

Addendum – word around the innerwebs is this was a put-up job, likely a blank shotgun shell used to create a large audience of suckers.  Regardless, blanks or live rounds, the same principles apply.

See Rule #3 on the sidebar!

  1. That has to be one of the dumbest people I have ever seen with a gun. Totally clueless. He violated rule 1 and rule 3 almost constantly. I wouldn’t doubt that it was a setup job. Maybe by the gun haters to show how stupid some gun owners are.

  2. Totally stupid, and put up or not, definitely does NOT make us (larger gun owner community) look good…

  3. WE may be onto him, but it won’t stop the anti-gunners from flaunting the video while crying, “See? Evil guns are evil!”

  4. Definitely fake. I guess the kid just needs attention. Maybe his mommy didn’t hug him enough.

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
