Not a joke.

It’s hard to believe people can be this stupid, and film it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Dipshits like these make it tougher for law abiding citizens like Michael to retain their 2nd Amendment rights. If you’re gonna be that dumb, shoot him in the head and at least clean up the gene pool a little.

ANd he was smoking to boot.

Seriously, can’t these dipshits get tagged for illegal use of a firearm?

You have the right to be buried in a community plot.

AH KNOW MAH RAGHTS!

I watched some show where they were testing vests. The 9mms were the worst pistol ammo tested for going through the vests (at least out of what they tried). The small size and the high velocity add up to trouble.

^VMAX has some story he posted a few months ago explaining ballistics in handgun calibers from the view of a pathologist

Dude, that pathologist’s post is worthy of a sidebar tag. It was that freakin’ good.

It was good. I think I linked it here. Or I thought about linking it here. I forget.

Oh, and incidentally…….

I’ve been working at my new job since Monday (and still doing my OLD job at night), and guess what I got to do today?

Give up yet?

I got to send an UPS package! All the way from packing the box, logging into the website & entering all the package dimensions, and then handing the box to the driver after he’d unloaded all our incoming packages. I can already feel the hump forming in my back.

I also made my first unassisted retail sale today. A guy came in and needed a new mirror for a 7700 series tractor. Not the whole mirror assembly, but just the glass (which was $26.64 including tax, if you’re keeping score at home). I looked up the spec on the part, went upstairs and picked it from the bin, and then came back down & rang it up & made change. Its kind of cool that this particular guy got to be my first sale, since he’s been a huge friend of my extended family for years, and he was one of the first farmers my dad worked for back in the late 40’s/early 50’s when Dad was in Junior High & High School. He’s also the first non-family member who hired me to bale hay back when I was in Jr. High. One thing I always was in awe of is that you always had to bust your ass to keep up with him, even though he’s way older than anyone else on his crews. I guess that he was that way right up until he had a hip replaced about 5 years ago. Now you can keep up with him by busting a SLIGHT sweat.

I hate to say it, but sending UPS packages was one of the things, for no accountable reason, I enjoyed doing at work.

Russ,
Brad,

STFU. If you try to make packing and shipping sound like fun, Laura is going to kill you.

People like those Einsteins are the reason HIs Wholly Reluctance is pResident. I think they should practice more–at closer range.

I’m with TC – Go for the head next time. Looks to me like that went through.

Either way, that’s stupid taken to a whole new level.

Even if I KNEW that vest was gonna protect me there’s NOBODY I trust enough to let them shoot at me.

As an ER doctor and a US Army Medical Corps Officer with 19 years of exposure to military ordinance, I can honestly say that was the stupidest thing I have ever seen.

Period.

Completely fake video…. The gun doesn’t cycle, watch the slide.

And for once, that wasn’t me!

What kind of shitty vest was that? People need to search for some damn quality. Your local army surplus doesn’t cut it. damnit!
