Idiots with Guns #22

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give an idiot a fish and he sticks a pistol in it's mouth. Sometimes idiocy defies explanation. I'm not sure at all what is going on here, but it ain't good. Is this fellow getting liquored up for St. Pat's? I wonder if this guy has a fishing license.......

The purpose of Idiots with Guns is not to humiliate, but to educate. Over the years we have seen photos of people who, upon picking up a gun, just cannot resist pointing it at something they should not, with their finger on the trigger. This is usually the camera, another person, or themselves. These photos are often difficult to google up, because of the pages they are shown on. If you have archived any of these photos, feel free to send them in to bayouroversATjamDOTrrDOTcom

The Four Rules
1. All firearms are loaded
2. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger unless your sights are on the target
4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it

Mr. Completely,

That is truly one of the stranger things I have seen recently.

As you say, I don't know what's going on, but it can't be good.

Best regards,

Once had a court case, representing oh, I forget the company, but they made POS guns that looked like subguns and went out of business since.

A guy had stolen one from a relative, and couldn't get it to fire (I think you could work the bolt far enough to chamber a round without going far enough to cock it --as I said, these were POSs). So he concluded it was nonfunctional and perfectly safe.

A girl saw it, and he said it was a POS, and set out to show her. He worked the bolt, stuck it in his mouth and pulled the trigger. Click. Pointed it at a dog, repeated. Click. Pointed it at her head. That time it worked, and she wound up DOA.

So they sued the mfr for making a gun that wasn't sufficiently dangerous! We won, of course.
