Panteao released the full video:

From the video description:

This will be the first and last time we comment publicly on this incident. Given the firestorm surrounding the video which was recently released without our authorization, we felt it necessary to publicly state our position regarding the matter:

I was getting tagged dozens of times in a 5 second clip of this video on Instagram.  I had no idea what the context was since the clip was so short, so I gave Travis the benefit of the doubt initially.  In this full video we see him demonstrating pushing his index finger on the magazine release at 1:46 when it slips off and hits the trigger which fires a round off.  Embarrassing?  Sure.  No one died and hopefully he learned from the incident.  What else can a person do right?  I’ve never had an accidental or negligent discharge, but I also don’t handle firearms day in and day out, and manipulate loaded firearms in front of cameras while talking and demonstrating different things.

travis-haley-magpul-dynamics-CEOEven operators make mistakes, and it’s lucky they were taking precautions during filming.  Thank god his beautiful skin was not compromised in any way.

Thoughts?  Anyone else curious the drama surrounding this “unauthorized release”?  Like was a hard drive stolen from Panteao HQ Oceans 11 style and then given to anon who uploaded it hundreds of times on every social media website?  I hope it’s that scandalous.  If you know the story, catch me up in the comments.

EMBARRASSING haha.  In a gun store too:

Chief-WiggumClearly he was the only one professional enough to handle that gun.  That’s the 2nd time he’s Negligent Discharged in 2 years too.

Definitely a case for careful re-holstering.  So many HSLD operators think they need to get it back in the holster quickly and without looking, like it matters so much.

2:35 – Is he seriously air pulling / pushing graphics?  *eye roll* LOL

Thoughts?

This video is apparently old, but that doesn’t make it any less hilarious:

0:45 – “It was one of those malfunctions, my thumb went in front of the barrel… and it went off” – LOL oh reeeeeeeealy? Just once I want someone to be like “Yea I’m a dumbass and I was dicking around, put my thumb in front of the barrel and pulled the trigger.”

Thumbs-And-Ammo-Big-LebowskiWell the prize for his stupidity is a short little thumb. *slow clap*

Thoughts?

A poignant reminder of the dangers of an ND:

Catchy song.

A Botetourt County (Roanoke, Virginia) man accidentally shot himself Friday while reading the instruction manual for a gun he’d just purchased.

The 28-year-old sustained injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening after shooting himself in the left leg with a .45-caliber Rock Island Armory 1911 pistol, county dispatchers and officials said.

Full Story – HERE

That is pretty damn impressive if you ask me. *slow clap*

Hopefully he’ll have a full recovery and be able to laugh about it someday.  Getting it in the leg though, he might have a reminder limp his whole life.

If this guy is smart he will read instruction manuals cover to cover before even touching anything in the future.

Thoughts?

A lesson to all gangsters: If you’re talking shit to the camera with a gun in your hand, make sure it’s pointed in a safe direction and your finger is off the trigger.

He’s gonna be grounded for that.
