People who give gun owners a bad name
This video is both funny and sad at the same time. Lots of classic gun screw-ups, doesn't look like anyone was (seriously) hurt.

Yeah, I saw this...

One of those guys looks like he's in a test range, so maybe he's doing it intentionally or something. The rest, well, there's really no excuse. Especially the cops.

The big guy, who's gun disapears at 32 sec in is shooting his custom built, bolt action, 500 Nitro (or something similarly stupid) pistol for the first time. He got is nose broken in the process.

The series of guys on the indoor range with the ridiculous rifle that are dressed for the desert are at Accurate Reloading in the UAE. The video has been around a while. The rifle is the .577 Tyrannosaur. The "I'm the only one professional enough..." guy is a DEA agent giving a gun safety presentation to a group of school kids. That one made the rounds about 6 months to a year ago IIRC.

".577 Tyrannosaur" ...?? Sounds like a macho recoil round. I don't understand why shooting a rifle should be painful in order for the shooter to be manly.

It's an African safari rifle. Shooting it is supposed to be less painful than getting gored by a charging Rhino. Just.

Heh... Kinda sad, but I can see people just not knowing. I remember footage circulating of a bunch of people firing a D.E.50 not fully knowing what it was, and having similar wrist-cracking results.

Hell, the first time I fired a .45-70, I got put on my butt. :)

There's still no excuse for the cops, though.

It's hard to watch that and not think that at least some of the shots were meant to be a staged farce, especially when they concerned that guy behind what looks like a desk and dressed like an arab.
