If you’re a Vigilant Spectre member, and/or operating above your skill level:

1:16 is where you need to start watching.  WTF?!  That is the kind of thing that just isn’t cool.  When Vigilant Spectre himself pointed out casually that he was “muzzled for like 20 minutes” the other guy laughed it off and was like “That’s the point.  Transitioning right?”.   Transitioning to the grave if you keep shit like that up.

Vigilant-Spectre-Victorias-SecretUgh.  You would not find me sticking around anywhere where firearm safety is that much of a laughing matter.  Push-ups and it’s OK!

I find it funny to think these guys have actual written “Standard Operating Procedures” they apparently follow… but here is the critique of what happened according to Vigilant Spectre:

Typically when there is a transition involved there are processes (actual written SOPs) in place to mitigate potential NDs, because its unavoidable when operating in 360 degrees that people are going to get swept:

“..The weapon has either been run dry and verified cold by the user, or the weapon has been safed. ”

I watched this multiple times in 300x slow motion and neither of these occurred.

Furthermore, it is also VSO standard operating procedure to “…maintain positive visual control of the weapon system any time manipulation of the weapon system occurs.”
This also did not occur, i.e. hand on receiver of shotgun while behind the back, pointed at buddy’s face.
There was certainly some falconry going on here and it will be addressed.

Ryan Cleckner former Army range / sniper team leader:

hahah wow.  1 shot, 9 witnesses, and video footage to prove it.

That’s how you give your students confidence in your ability as an instructor.  I think Colby pooped his pants a little with excitement at the end of the video.  

Texas-Triggers-LogoAnyone ever pull of a nice shot like that with a .50?

Joey did it right, bought all his guys ENDO Run Guns t-shirts and defended the meadow.  Priceless:

ENDO-Apparel-Run-Guns-Bachelor-Party-1

ENDO-Apparel-Run-Guns-Bachelor-Party-2

ENDO-Apparel-Run-Guns-Bachelor-Party-3

‘Merica!

This what at some point in the bachelor party day.  So awesome, I’m always willing to consider helping out on the price when anyone has anything awesome like this planned and wants to deliver pics.  It’s unconfirmed whether strippers showed up at the meadow later that night.  If they did, I was told there are no pics of them in the shirts.

LOL @ the banjo even.

Congrats again Joey, have a long and happy marriage!  Thanks again for the pics.

Run Guns t-shirts available over at ENDO Apparel.

Great video.  This girl knows what she’s talking about:

If Sarah Merkle doesn’t look familiar to you, check out the knowledge she dropped on anti-gun Maryland politicians a while back. Almost 3.3 Million views on that video; I really hope all the views were not only from pro-gun people.

0:47 & 1:02 – Did she just toss a lose round in the ejection port and then send the bolt home?  I can’t say I’ve seen people do that on AR-15s normally.

It’s like “Oh you don’t like the constitution?  Syria doesn’t have one, move there.”

15-Year-Old-Girl-Pro-Gun-SpeechCrazy that girl is only 15.  I hope her patriotism and willing to fight for our rights only gets stronger, she will be an even greater asset to us all.

When cannon rings are outlawed, only outlaws will have cannon rings:

ReticleFingerRingBan assault cannon rings!  I wouldn’t want to have a kaboom with one of those on.  The regular fuse and powder burns alone would put an end to my side career as a tactical hand model.

Absuperman doing what he does best:

Absuperman-YouTubeHe used the Speech Zapper iPhone app.  It’s very difficult / frustrating to talk when your own voice is played back to you with a slight delay.  I have had that happen with webphones and cellphones occasionally… not ideal.

hahaha holy this video is hard to watch and looks like it would have been exhausting to film.

Thoughts?  Anyone ever tried one of these apps?
