This is what they consider a “training warm-up” complete with fake Russian accents:
The video is titled “Shotguns a way of life”… so the “way of life” is that most of you miss basically ALL the shots you take? Cool way of life bro. I don’t claim to be king of the clays (because I’m not)… but this is really bad.
3:30 – Nerds and Skittles loads hahahha. Why not, after all they are warming up for some training.
6:00 – 10 Push-ups for muzzle sweeping a buddy. hahah yea no big deal, you could have just killed your friend… just laugh it off do the push-ups.
What’s with having the guy operating the clay thrower in front of the line of fire? The best was when the clay flew left, but luckily hunting camo guy had the quick foresight not to pull the trigger. They violate a lot of basically safety rules, and considering they aren’t new to this, and aren’t 5 years old they really should know better. Oh right… when you’re an operator you don’t need to abide by the same rules as the rest of us commoners.
The best shit that popped into my mind lately was “Hey I know that logo!”. Behold:
Yea ok it’s a bit of a stretch, but there are definitely lots of similarities.
Oh man… these guys are pure gold on multiple layers. It’s like a derp onion. Thoughts?
I’m no metallurgist / polymer expert, but I don’t see how a little cold weather would have caused this:
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.
I gotta tell you fellas, you got what appears to be a dynamite idea *shifty eyes*:
Combining the Vigilant Spectre group with moving vehicles, ice, snow, and firearms seems to me like a deadly cocktail… but hey I just operate from cozy armchairs, so really what do I know? After reading their disclaimer though I was really put at ease haha:
Disclaimer: THE ACTIVITIES DEPICTED IN THIS VIDEO CARRY A HIGH RISK OF SERIOUS BODILY INJURY OR DEATH. VSO does not advocate the emulation of high risk behaviors. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME! Viewer discretion is advised.
Translation: You’re not operator enough to attempt what we do in the video. Fall back you newbs. Ask your mom’s permission before you even view this shit… we are THAT hardcore.
You can go back through the Vigilant Spectre archives to see my opinions on their past tomfoolery. I stand by what I said, but since then I have exchanged a few emails with Vigilant Spectre himself, and he actually seems like a good guy… I just never plan on shooting with him or his crew. Basically I’ll summarize it by bastardizing / modifying a Bruce Dickinson quote from the SNL “blue oyster cult” skit… Vigilant Spectre of course as THE Bruce Dickinson:
I put my rifle on; the sling over one shoulder just like the rest of you… except once my rifle is on I do stupid shit.
We can talk about “is this good for gun owners? Is this bad for gun owners?” until we’re blue in the face. Frankly in this case it looks like they are out in the middle of nowhere shooting into a ditch, and they all made the decision as adults to be there, so I don’t really care. I wouldn’t want to be involved with something like this in any capacity, but that’s just me. If I ever win Powerball I’m buying Vigilant Spectre a small helicopter so they can kick this up a few notches.
The muzzle sweeping was pretty bad a few times, but they said that was ok because there was no round in the chamber (hopefully).
Does the mixing of several camouflages and fabric from several different eras drive anyone else nuts? haha
Our official stance toward the endo blog is that its author knows little about firearms. He is a safety nazi drone that probably stores his weapons locked and unloaded. He craves attention and receives it by perpetuating falsehoods on the material that he fails to understand. He does not grasp reality, is a poster child for the brady campaign, and as far as we are concerned is not to be paid attention. We also consider the trolls that frequent that blog to be lumped in with the author.
Every member of the team must pass both a primary and secondary weapons qual for multiple reasons, Here is a short snippet of the primary qual.
Two positions: one at 150 yards and the other at 250.
Shooters start at 150 yrds. They shoot 10 rounds from standing offhand, followed by 10 rounds kneeling and 5 prone.
The shooter then moves to 250 yards and repeats this sequence but is allowed to rest.
Shooters are given 50 rounds in 3 randomly loaded magazines.
3 minute time limit on each stage with no rollover
I love the “for multiple reasons” vagueness in the description. You just know these guys sit around at night in multicam panties, drinking and salivating over SHTF scenarios.
Those distances are fine and all, but they failed to say what counts as a pass. My guess is these guys just have to “shoot” at targets at those ranges, and hits don’t really matter. Might as well throw some targets 1000+ yards downrange too if that’s the case.
Oh yea and one more thing, did Spectre introduce the shooter as “Anus Patriot” at 0:16? It sure sounds like it, and I really wouldn’t be surprised.
