booby trap

Yung back at it:

1:48 – Whoa…. he’s like a foot away from that thing with no safety protection of any kind. Damn!  Unsurprisingly, people are freaking out in the YouTube comments.

3:22 – Setup with the trip wire

Here he shows how to make them:

I had no idea this was legal.  I’m no lawyer, but I’d imagine depending on the state you live in things could get VERY dicey legally for you if you do this and hurt someone.

<— me right now

Thoughts?

Shotgun-booby-trap-gas-station-2“I tie a string to the two front doors and other places, big strings so people can see it and the string goes to a pulley that goes to a trigger on a shotgun”, said Service Station owner Joe McCoy.  For the past few years his homemade booby-trap seems to be working. McCoy does give credit to the local authorities at the Clarke County Sheriff’s Department, but says he is in the middle of the country and it’s just a long way for people to respond.

I figured this was 100% illegal, and sure enough an attorney in the video confirms it.  I don’t really see how an unmanned shotgun (which is obviously pointed in one direction) with some derp strings attached to it is any type of deterrent anyway.  I suppose a potential burglar might think “whoa, if he has that setup… there’s no telling what else awaits me inside”… ok fine.

Damn thieves will take anything that’s not bolted down… even if it is bolted down they probably have wrenches.

Shotgun-booby-trap-gas-stationBefore I close out this post I will add, that although my opinion on such a topic in the past has been unpopular, I think it should be perfectly alright to bait and shotgun thieves.  Play stupid games win stupid prizes.  It would make the world a nicer place if I always didn’t have to worry about getting everything I own stolen too.

Thoughts?  PS: That Faygo tho…  Who wants to listen to ICP and mix up some dirty Faygo (lean) with me this weekend?

Rebel’s gonna explode:

The primary source for doctored ammunition has been the Syrian government, which mixes exploding cartridges with ordinary rounds on the black markets through which rebels acquire weapons, the commanders said.

Interesting practice.  If this has been going on in all sorts of wars for as long as they say it has been, I wonder if there’s any risk shooting the military surplus ammo we all know and love?  My guess is not, considering I’m not hearing about someones AK or Mosin Nagant blowing up daily.  Kind of makes me uneasy though.

That dudes fingers are gnarly.  I’m guessing that giving someone the “middle finger” isn’t considered offensive in that part of the world, because if it is, that guy better watch who he waves that right hand at.

Thoughts?
