Defenders Of The DERP VS ENDO

VigilantSpectre makes an “Official Statement”:

Our official stance toward the endo blog is that its author knows little about firearms. He is a safety nazi drone that probably stores his weapons locked and unloaded. He craves attention and receives it by perpetuating falsehoods on the material that he fails to understand. He does not grasp reality, is a poster child for the brady campaign, and as far as we are concerned is not to be paid attention. We also consider the trolls that frequent that blog to be lumped in with the author.

That was from the comments on their latest youtube video.  Priceless…

Keep DERP alive in the gun community guys…. keep it alive…

I believe with VigilantSpectre we stumbled upon one of those rare cases of a group that is so dumb, they actually think they are smart.

Hopefully one day i’ll be able to understand the point of your videos.  That’s what you’re all about right?  Education?

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a lot of work ahead of me drafting some new Assault Weapons Ban verbiage for upcoming Brady Campaign speeches.  Oh shit, that slipped out…

Thoughts?

Dear god, these children could learn allot from this and other blogs. They had a perfect opportunity to do so…several in fact. And now they take this stance…lol. Whatever are we to do.

Yea, lol. The logic is sound. A long time well respected firearms blogger…”knows little about firearms”

Yet these guys, with absolutely zero formal training of any kind….are knowledgeable.

K, Sounds legit to me.

From their webpage:
“The VigilantSpectre Team is a group of individuals, varying in experience level, that have come together to achieve a unified goal. The goal is to bring their training and readiness to a level superior to that of the average citizen. The team also strives to hold a level of trust and comradery that is important when training with dangerous things.”

I wonder if this skill improvement includes being able to facepaint and not feel self-consious about wearing webbing and camo clothes? When I play soldiers I’ve noticed my facepainting skills are lacking.

Seriously, ENDO blog isn’t enough as far as these guys go. I think we need to reach a larger section of the internet on these D-bags.

Anyone who watches them and thinks about what the hell it is they’re portraying themselves as, against their chubby civvy reality, realizes how delusional and dangerous they are.

Real people are out there serving this country, putting their lives actually on the line, and these assholes are giving themselves callsigns and pretending they’re experts, heroes even- trying to win the fame and admiration of the ignorant.

My official stance back to them:
“Fauxperator: N. the exasperatingly annoying mallninja with enough disposable income to actually afford most upper end firearms and gear despite a complete aversion to military service, formal training, or even exercise. Synonym: weekend warrior, CODude, Tactidude. Often attributed to being ‘douche bags’ by instructors like Larry Vickers and Pat Rogers.”
Stop buying magpul videos, diet, exercise, and get your asses to Gunsite, ThunderRanch, or *1 defense school before you hurt yourselves.

I never mentioned safety–I mentioned the fact that your bs couchpotato shit is not being vigilant or preparing you. If anything, you’re LARPing.
If you went to any of the major firearms schools around this country and pulled these kinds of antics, you’d be shown the door. Instead of dropping a couple grand in an AR that shoots better than you–buy a plane ticket, and attend a real school.
There is NO SUCH THING as “Safe Enough.” “Enough” implies the bare minimum.

I mean, all they have to do is just S.T.O.P….stop reading shit on the internet. SLOW DOWN, attend a basic course, learn some shit and it will grow from there naturally. They cant reinvent the wheel when they are making is with four sides. Others who are riding on wheeled vehicles will know. Now the only question is…when will they become ‘self-aware’

Well this wasn’t surprising, but rather over the top. But can I accuse vigilant whatever of being Brady campaign trolls themselves? If people like that wake up in the morning thinking they are going to make gun owners look bad then they succeed. Personally I think numnuts like this are a much bigger threat to legal gun ownership than any college professor or other dry intellectual they parade out on the talk shows to say “guns are bad mmkay”.

Double July 28, 2012 at 04:32 pm

So at first I thought this was a basic case of internet trolling, and that these guys can’t be that bad. Being unable to view Youtube videos due to bandwidth issues right now I decided to look at their webpage.

I’m not even sure where to being… so I’ll just say this.

There are 2 ways to make good revenue on youtube
1 – make something the people want to watch. kinda tricky to predict the formula for that
2 – make something people will be unable to not watch. best done with the 3rd party help of unknowing sucker forums and blogs.

as long as the ammo money keeps coming in expect to see more.

As a Glock armor, one of the most common “modifications” I see is clipping of the spring. you know, to make it work better. :)

Linoge July 30, 2012 at 06:10 am

I believe the phrase you are looking for is “Dunning-Kruger Effect“.

They meet all four checkpoints, though the last one may be suspect:

Kruger and Dunning proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:
– tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
– fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
– fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
– recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they are exposed to training for that skill

On the other side of this debate, this VigilantSpectre circle-jerk goes to prove that no amount of high-speed-low-drag tacticool gear will make up for being overweight, unskilled, incompetent grown men playing dress-up. I would write about this idiocy myself and give them another site to speciously malign out of their own ignorance, but damned if I can force myself to sit through that much concentrated stupidity in a single go…
