Looks like that might actually work! If I had a Wii i’d definitely try it.

This certainly isn’t the first photo I’ve seen on here where somebody has set their weapon down and neglected to put the selector switch back to “safe.” I guess between my grandfather and Uncle Sam, I was taught some different rules of firearm safety. I find it best to leave a weapon on safe if I’m not firing at something, and I certainly wouldn’t set it down on “fire,” especially with a magazine inserted into it!
Am I the only one that finds this to be a poor practice? And even worse that they’re not only doing it, but taking a picture to share on the internet of it? It just seems like it should be such a habit to put it on safe that this would never happen, and even if a person somehow forgot, they would notice it when taking the picture. It always sticks out like a sore thumb when I see it!
Poor practice, yes. We don’t even know if there is a mag in the gun though. All I see is a loaded magazine in the redi-mag. On Safe or not, if you have live ammunition around guns and you are playing games there are going to be some Darwin award winners sooner or later. Take the glock for instance, it has no “external” safety, and you probably wouldn’t even think twice about someone taking a picture of their glock with a magazine inside of it laid down on the carpet.
Your #1 safety is your mind no matter what. Mechanical safeties are nice to have in many instances, but they won’t safeguard against stupidity.
Funny. I set down my carry piece every night, fully loaded, round in the chamber, safety off.
In fact, it has no manual safety.
Likewise, my home defense shotty is kept with an empty chamber, loaded magazine, safety off, as is my AR-15.
My safety is that squishy grey stuff between my ears, and no switches, gadgets, or gizmos are going to be able to make up for someone not using that stuff. And, speaking personally, I would very much prefer that all of my firearms were all in the same condition of readiness, so I know exactly what to do with each one when I pick them up. I do not want to be fumbling for a selector switch or a little nubbin of a pushbutton in the middle of the night, but racking a slide or bolt is a gross-motion action that I can reliably perform under stress.
Works for me.
Hm. I see a couple of the Four Rules going right out the window with that arrangement…
But, still, so long as you do not care about your television (or what is behind it), I can see a definite training potential.
Yea it definitely violates the 4 rules.
Still back in the spirit of fun and humor – it is good.
Do you own stock in MagPul?
That’s not my gun by the way… but to answer you question, if magpul was a public company I would definitely purchase stock.
