Interesting, I didn’t want to punch Richard Ryan (the kid without the beard) in the face as much as I normally do.

I didn’t think his obnoxiousness in some of his other vids was an act, but it must be.

Pretty sad that little kids have to go through stuff like this:

Judging by what I read on the internet, shootouts are pretty routine in some parts of Mexico nowadays.

Late-May of 1956, James Bond author Ian Fleming received a politely critical letter from a firearms expert named Geoffrey Boothroyd.  It Began:

I have, by now, got rather fond of Mr. James Bond. I like most of the things about him, with the exception of his rather deplorable taste in firearms. In particular, I dislike a man who comes into contact with all sorts of formidable people using a .25 Beretta. This sort of gun is really a lady’s gun, and not a really nice lady at that. If Mr. Bond has to use a light gun he would be better off with a .22 rim fire; the lead bullet would cause more shocking effect than the jacketed type of the .25.

May I suggest that Mr. Bond be armed with a revolver?

All valid points.

Ian Fleming was impressed with the letter, and wrote a classy response:

Then the coolest thing happens.  Fleming introduces a “service armorer” into the Dr. No book, and names him Major Boothroyd! The character also appeared in later films. (wiki)

Excuse me while I go craft letters to authors, and movie directors on why they should use Glocks in an effort to get a character named after me. :P

Is this supposed to be funny?

There should be a huge fine for doing Stupid fake Russian accents on YouTube.

I’m surprised youtube actually doesn’t ban user that make videos like that.  Although I guess at < 500 views, it is hardly on the radar.

Good news.  It looks like guns are still going to be around in the future:

I wonder what Doc Brown was buying? My guess is he probably told them he wanted to purchase another Glock rifle and got laughed out of the store.

I know the whole “cokeman” persona is apparently an act.. but I want to punch this guy in the face every time he opens his mouth:

Shooting inside my house is not something i’d do unless I had an actual range.  Whatever floats your boat though.

He’s wearing dirty looking shoes, and has shitty carpet so I suppose what does he have to lose as long as it’s done safely as possible.
