Good stuff… good stuff.  Thoughts?

When A kid that’s not a teenager shoots a gun, facebook moms get butthurt:

*makes note of special niche market for little kid length of pull stocks* 

Well she’s rocking that thing that’s for sure.

OH… buddy noooooooo…. *CRINGE times several billion* when I heard “What’s the best ammo in the world?” then coaxed her to say the ammo name at the end of the video.  Damn, and and my day was going so well up until that point.

This video comes on the heels of the one I posted last week where a 7 year old girl shot her first deer. At least there wasn’t an obvious shoutout in the video, even though it did look like a REALTREE ad.

Ban assault kids!

Lodi, CA — A Lodi Police SWAT officer had a Glock 35 with a flashlight in his thigh holster at a children’s reading event when a boy managed to pull the trigger and shoot the officer.

Full Story – CBS

1:24 – “We don’t know if it was accidental or intentional”  <— LOL I’d die if that kid was like “Yea, I wanted to shoot the gun and I knew he wouldn’t let me so I pulled the trigger”

1:27 – “Police say since the gun was in a holster to accommodate the attached flashlight, the trigger was more accessible”  – What kind of a garbage drop leg holster has an open trigger area?  I expect more from someone in law enforcement.

I wish there was video footage of the incident so I could overlay CCR – Lodi “OHHHHH lord, shot in Lodi again”

Even though no one got hurt, they need to get to the bottom of the reason for the negligent discharge (negligence on the police officers behalf… not the kid’s) though because it could have been a lot worse.

Thoughts?

A 9 year old fellow countryman of Piers’, putting some lead down range:

Posted for no other reason than this kid is 9, British, and getting a taste of America while he’s here on Vacation.  Will he be allowed to tell his friends about the guns he shot when he goes back to school in the fall?  Is it illegal over there yet to talk about guns at school?  I imagine possession of YouTube shooting footage at school is definitely a crime.

Piers-Morgan-Eyes-Closed-Mouth-Open-Ears-OffMaybe when Piers reads my blog today he will tweet about how “disgusting it is to see a child shoot the same caliber high capacity ASSAULT WEAPON used to shoot Gabrielle Giffords in the head and kill 32 people at Virgina Tech”.  Yea he’s quite predictable, so I’m pretty much positive those words would be coming out of his mouth verbatim.

Modified NERF gun:

Super-Mario-Brother-Modified-NERF-Gun

I have really been into making custom Nerf guns lately, so I decided to try to make one for good ol’ Mario. Here is what I imagine it would look like. The ammo of choice is a Bullet Bill, and of course there is a working flashlight for all those dark pipes he has to explore. I wanted to incorporate as much of the Mushroom Kingdom as I could with this gun, so I also added Piranha plants on the sides and a super star on the back. I had to take out the functionality of shooting darts, so I added a sound every time you pull the trigger. It is the sound of Mario getting bigger. (Source)

Really neat.  You gotta love the attention to detail.

More pictures over on the flickr page.

This is absolutely priceless:

When it cut off I was like “NOOOOOooooooooo”.

Hopefully we will see some more from that little guy. He will probably busy doing firearm terminology consulting work for the mainstream media though.
