Wait, what?! I guess I didn’t get the memo. Watch this vid:

Yea you see those operators “training” to jam the handgun back into the holster robotically while keeping their eyes on the threat.  This raises a number of questions in my mind… primarily, if there is still a “threat” why are you putting your gun away?  Doing it quickly, and blindly, only makes this video and training all that much more ridiculous in my mind.  Why not spin it on your finger, and toss it up in the air too while you’re at it?  You’d have to of course practice that thousands of times though, then it would be perfectly safe according to them.  What’s the hurry to get the gun out of sight?  It’s not like they are all wearing tactical speedos either, so the chance of a piece of fabric ending up in the trigger guard sooner or later is pretty good.

Someone please save the video and upload it to youtube before it disappears?  The derp needs to be saved for posterity… think of the children.

HammerFour-Blind-Re-HolsterThe icing on the cake are the comments on facebook, where the training company HammerFour fully defends that this practice is perfectly safe and necessary.  Frankly I don’t need any more holes in my body to take care of, and a permanent pimp limp just doesn’t fit my character.

Our buddy MrColionNoir makes MSNBC:

“I don’t know if you’ve seen it congressman, but the NRA is out with a new ad that specifically targets African American youth.”

Hahaha the NRA x MrColionNoir ad targeted African American youth? How?  Because MrColionNoir happens to have more melonin than Conan O’Brien for instance? Oh I get it… before there were just white NRA spokesmen, so it was real easy to say that the NRA was “racist”. *smh*

MrColionNoir-YouTube

That New York rep Charlie Rangel rambles on and on, and says a bunch of stupid shit about how the ad is an insult to the American people’s intelligence, and how there’s no reason we have “assault weapons for hunting and other non-criminal purposes”… *eye roll*  whatevs bro.

BET-Hates-MrColionNoir

I knew when MrColionNoir rose to fame, race would become an issue… this article is ridiculous.

It is incredible to witness a Black man champion the sale and distribution of guns to a national community that has been devastated by the epidemic of gun violence, in the age of Trayvon Martin, of Hadiya Pendleton.

Full article over at BET.

Oh wow LOL

Fuck BET anyway.  I stopped watching their bullshit programming once Big Tigger quit hosting Rap City’s “The Basement”, and to top that off they replaced him with that new bozo on 106th and Park.  I get all my rap video and freestyle vid fix off YouTube and mixtapes now, AND I don’t have to deal with commercials.  Win win.  I do miss the days when my sister (now all grown up and busy with work/life) used to yell to me that Freestyle Friday was on, and we would watch it together. :(

I’m no metallurgist / polymer expert, but I don’t see how a little cold weather would have caused this:

The description:

Glock fail again. Cause: its cold outside. Sure hope the home invasion happens in the summer.
And Yes this Glock has been to a Glocksmith, whatever the fuck that means.

First of all let me say I’m not a fan of seeing people shoot where there definitely isn’t a backstop.  What if someone ripped by there on a snowmobile?  I’d be pretty mad if I caught a stray just out for a leisurely ride.  I know Vigilant Spectre is going to come on here and say “it was private land etc… etc…”.  Still reckless if you ask me.

Secondly, maybe I’m not operator enough to handle advanced handgun manipulation, but I really don’t like to see someone palm the entire front of the slide with part of their hand hanging over the muzzle.

Third, they said the Glock has been to a “Glocksmith”.  Sure fine whatever… but those guys being the tinkerers that I know they are, I wonder if they detail stripped the crap out of it at one point and tried to do some stuff like “trigger bar polishing” etc… and otherwise mess with the factory configuration of the handgun?

Finally, I don’t understand why someone would publicly or privately “wish” for a home invasion as they have a few times in the past, and in the description of this particular video. You just know they want to try out their sweet CQB disarming moves though.

Vigilant-Spectre-Winter-Vehicle-OpsBy far their best Glock related video is the one where they shoot past their feet while sitting in an algae and rain water filled tractor tire. haha I consider myself creative, and I couldn’t even make shit up that funny if I tried.

Because America:

haha McDonalds.  People still eat that?  I figured the drive-thru lineup was always just for cheap coffee.

I’ve gotta respect the dual wielding of Miller High Life, that’s the ultimate beer of the struggle.

With a song even:

The list in question:

  1. Be realistic about your ability to protect yourself.
  2. Your instinct may be to scream, go ahead!  It may startle your attacker and give you an opportunity to run away.
  3. Kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.
  4. Don’t take time to look back; just get away.
  5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense.
  6. Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating.
  7. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.
  8. Yelling, hitting or biting may give you a chance to escape, do it!
  9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm.
  10. Remember, every emergency situation is different.  Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.

ENDO rape prevention list:

  1. Shoot rapist.

Keep Calm And Carry One T-Shirt

Girls please just Keep Calm And Carry One, that’s the best measure.  I actually really don’t see why there was such a big deal made about the original list, besides the fact that rape is understandably a touchy subject.  As far as I can tell, the point of the list was basically “get away, or try and stop it by grossing your attacker out.”  I remember hearing tips like that for years and although I don’t pretend to know the dynamics of that type of situation, it seems to me like a woman’s options are quite limited if they are not armed.
