A good find by user Jacobdw on GlockTalk:
“Let them take Arms” is from the historic Thomas Jefferson quote:
“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356
You’d think that since Russians apparently invented the stupid “game”, they would know how it works.
You can’t put one round in the magazine of an autoloader, and not expect it to fire after you rack the slide and pull the trigger.

After watching the video, this is how I believe it went down:
20 seconds – Guy #1 is carrying the gun (a Makarov PM) in some type of small (pocket?) holster.
23 seconds – Guy #1 removes holster and throws it onto the table.
24 seconds – Guy #1 pretends to load the gun by racking the slide, but only pulls it back slightly, so no bullet chambers.
29 seconds – You can tell that Guy #1 does not pull the trigger. The sound you hear is likely him clicking the slide mounted safety off.
32 seconds – Guy #1 racks the slide and puts a round into the chamber.
35 seconds – Guy #2 pulls trigger and discharges round into his head, as 2 of the onlookers realize he does not know the “click the safety for the sound” trick
I would never in a million years consider doing anything so stupid with a gun. “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes” as they say.
As usual, Jeff Cooper‘s rules apply here.. most relevant are #1 and #2:
- All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
- Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
- Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
- Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

I don’t normally wear t-shirts, but for this one I’ll make an exception:
Though, if anyone asks me if it’s “Ed Hardy”, I’m going to say “But it ain’t even got no skulls, fuggetaboutit!” and then never wear the shirt again.
Available at the NRA Store – HERE (I hope they ship quickly!)

It’s been a while since I was last in a Toys R Us, but if they are starting to carry gun related accessories then I may have to re-visit!
If you get a chance, read some of the reviews. Some of them are pretty funny!
Maybe in the future a dedicated store for just firearms and accessories?

No matter what online first person shooter game you play, whether it be HALO, Modern Warfare 2, etc… You are always going to have to deal with campers.
By definition, a camper just sits at one spot in the game map and waits around for another player just so they can kill them. This happens on ALL online first person shooter games, and can get very irritating.
Some might say it’s good strategy, which may be true… but it takes the fun out of playing.
The one good thing is that once you get killed by a camper once, it lots of times gives away their position so you can go kill them. If they are a habitual camper though, unfortunately they will most likely just go back to the same spot, or else find another spot to set up camp.
Hilarity ensues in games like Modern Warfare 2, where the users can have on mics and talk to one another.
What are your thoughts on campers?
Always nice to see some humor brightening up such a hostile environment.
Stay safe guys!
