In a promo for his new movie “Killers”, Ashton Kutcher has the following video running when connecting to random people on ChatRoulette:

Good to see he has excellent taste in guns. His Glock is definitely a compact model, and by the look of the barrel when it’s pointing at the camera, and the cartridge when he holding it, I’d have to say it’s likely a G23 (.40 caliber).

The gun in the video is likey the one he keeps under his bed, which I blogged about a few days ago HERE.

I always like that guy, but this seals the deal:

“You have to have a gun under your bed,” Kutcher said. “…I don’t have security.”

He’s one of us.

The statement he made was in an ABC news interview when asked about a radical new promo he was doing on Chat Roulette, for his new movie Killers.

It’s called Kaba Kick:

The player points the gun at his or her own head and pulls the trigger.  Instead of bullets, a pair of feet kick out from the barrel (which is shaped like a pink hippo).  If the gun doesn’t fire the player earns points.

Wow, great game.  That’ll teach them some life skills they could apply if they ever were to come in contact with a real gun  :roll:

Maybe the Russian wedding guest that shot himself recently had a Kaba Kick he was used to playing with.

I searched amazon, ebay, half, craiglist etc… and couldn’t come up with a place to buy one.  Hopefully that means they are discontinued and extremely rare.

You’d think that since Russians apparently invented the stupid “game”, they would know how it works.

You can’t put one round in the magazine of an autoloader, and not expect it to fire after you rack the slide and pull the trigger.

After watching the video, this is how I believe it went down:

20 seconds – Guy #1 is carrying the gun (a Makarov PM) in some type of small (pocket?) holster.

23 seconds – Guy #1 removes holster and throws it onto the table.

24 seconds – Guy #1 pretends to load the gun by racking the slide, but only pulls it back slightly, so no bullet chambers.

29 seconds – You can tell that Guy #1 does not pull the trigger.  The sound you hear is likely him clicking the slide mounted safety off.

32 seconds – Guy #1 racks the slide and puts a round into the chamber.

35 seconds – Guy #2 pulls trigger and discharges round into his head, as 2 of the onlookers realize he does not know the “click the safety for the sound” trick  :roll:

I would never in a million years consider doing anything so stupid with a gun. “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes” as they say.

As usual, Jeff Cooper‘s rules apply here.. most relevant are #1 and #2:

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

Salt Lake City, UT – Sixteen-year-old Maile Fine was pronounced dead at Intermountain Medical Center Thursday after an apparent joke about Russian Roulette went horribly wrong.

Though friends with him at the time said he had taken the bullets out of the gun, when Fine pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger the firearm went off and the bullet struck him.

The 4 basic rules of gun safety as advocated by the late Marine Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper can not be stressed enough:

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

It’s just not worth taking the risk and violating any of those points.
