kimber

I post this type of video every now and then.  People sure lose a lot of stuff in rivers:

I started the video embed at the exact time he secures the bag (Future reference haha some of you might have caught).

4:44 – He pulls the gun out.  I’m absolutely flabbergasted that a 1911 was able to stay under water for presumably more than 10 seconds and not be a pile of rust.

9:38 – Will the police department really destroy the gun after 30 days if someone doesn’t claim it?  If so, that’s weak.  You think they would at least give the guy who went out of his way to report it, a couple days or so to pick it up if he wanted it.  At least he got to keep the watch for his trouble. I actually wouldn’t mind a watch like that for hiking. I was thinking about picking up a Suunto Core at some point for that… although it’s been kind of nice that this summer I didn’t get the ridiculous tan line I normally do when I wear a watch hiking.

For entertainment purposes I really wish that bag would have had 🍰🍰🍰% paraphernalia and patches all over it.  The kimber could have definitely used a punisher skull and some Molon Labe too for added humor.

Thoughts?

YouTube’s TexGrebner ventilates his leg with a FMJ .45:

At least he takes responsibility for his actions.  I wouldn’t quite call the occurrence “unlucky” though (as he does in the video description), when it was clear negligence.

I’m not a huge fan of push button retention holsters… this is why.

The best part is “After I got shot, my training took over… I called my parents”

I got a kick out of this one youtube comment by user asystole599:

Practice like you play man….. you shoulda dropped to your back and unloaded on the target. Don’t get in the habit of giving up after you get shot. As bad practice caused this negligent discharge….bad practice will keep you from shooting the bad guy who gets off the first shot.

kimber-1911

To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah)

I was the white guy with the black Burrberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend’s purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I’d like to apologize.

I didn’t expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn’t that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 . 45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It’s a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn’t it?

I know it probably wasn’t a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you’d come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants. I’m sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn’t have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again. I took the liberty of calling your mother, or “Momma” as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster.

I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They’ll be on your bill in case you’d like to know which ones. Alltel recently shut down the line, and I’ve only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don’t know what’s going on with that. I hope they haven’t permanently cut off your service. I was about to make some threatening phone calls to the DA’s office with it. Oh well.

So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I’d like to make it up to you. I’m sure you’ve already washed your pants, so I’d like to help you out. I’d like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I’d also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I’m hoping that you’ll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky. If you read this message, email me and we’ll do lunch and laundry.

Peace!
– Alex

You would think that a place that SELLS GUNS would at least get the terminology right.

Maybe they are hiring journalists now? :lol:
