Must be using blanks though.  The muzzle flash is huge, and there doesn’t appear to be any recoil on any of the firearms.

I tried to find some Bérénice Marlohe training footage (shes the other skyfall bond girl), but no luck.

I’m really looking so forward to Skyfall.  Anyone else?

Deagles really have a way of bringing out the derp in people:

Jello Wrists!  Watching him shoot at the range is painful.

Judging by the way the guy shoots, and his terrible trigger discipline you’ll probably have to worry about a negligent discharge “on his watch”.

There are a few other videos over on his youtube page.  Although they are all pre April fools day, I’m not really 100% sure they are not a joke.  His “Finnisher” character obviously created in an attempt to impress chicks and stroke his ego is almost too good to be true.

If I lived anywhere near Houston TX I’d stop by there just to investigate.

Crazy slingshot guy Joerg Sprave really outdoes himself this time:

Basically a scaled up version of the Pump Action Slingshot Crossbow.  Damn that guy has a lot of fun.

Those 1/2 pound bolts look deadly!



This brought back some memories:

I was never huge into video games, but I did put quite a bit of time in on DOOM and DOOM II deathmatch.

Although very effective, the BFG 9000 wasn’t my favorite weapon.  I was partial to the rocket launcher and plasma gun, and to a lesser extent the chaingun.



Try and put a negative spin on this one anti-gunners:

Shoot shotgun at water to make a rainbow + find leprechaun at end of created rainbow and steal his gold = PROFIT!

The girl in the video is Brandon401401’s girlfriend (wife?).  You might remember him from his Sterling 9mm POV or deadly shooting at 400 yards with the Ruger Mark III.

Dat Rainbow. Thoughts?
