A professional's professional.

The anti-self-defense crowd keeps telling us to "leave the guns to the trained professionals".

I was skeptical, until I found out just how highly-trained some of those professionals are. Take LAPD Deputy Chief Michel Moore for example, who is such an incredibly hardcore lethal badass that in his spare time he hunts "lions, tigers, and bears" with a hot rod .22 pistol.

Los Angelenos should sleep safer at night knowing that such rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Yeah, more like fingers, eyes and tendons for the novice hand loader.

How can that guy not be completely embarrassed to be so dumb?

"Los Angelenos should sleep safer at night knowing that such rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

If they had half a clue, they wouldn't sleep at all at night, knowing that this is the best protection they get.

What a moron.

I say, if the .22LR is such a terrible calibre, then we wouldn't want the LAPD to have anything larger than a NAA derringer chambered in .22Short. That way if they are stolen from an officer's home or car, the public's safety won't be in jeopardy. And the poor "Chief" would probably mess himself at the mere SIGHT of my TC chambered in 45-70.

Not to mention SF Chief Heather Fong (MA - Social Work), who hasn't been to qualification in over five years while ordering disciplinary action for officers who committed the same violation. I'm sure she wouldn't even recognize a FiveseveN.

I vote we do a whip-round and see if we can get enough money to send the good Deputy Chief on an African safari armed with that fierce FiveseveN.

Of course, we'll have to insist that he get all his shots. We wouldn't want the Kitteh that eats him to get any diseases.

You can keep your FiveseveN, baby, I'm sticking with my EAA Drozd. Yup, full auto BB gun, don't even bother checking if they're legal in CA.

Oh yeah, the Drozd - when you absolutely, positively want to leave everyone in the room rubbing their thighs and going "owwww!"

Took mine bear hunting and all the bears - every one - said "You'll put your eye out, kid!"

Skynet tw: hilybush. Now, that's just nasty. Let's leave that one for Bill and Obama to wrangle over.

Actually, the "hot rod .22" is quite adequate for hunting "lions,tigers,and bears" if they are in a zoo...
and anesthetized.
That is probably the only kind of "hunting" this latte-sipping, plant-hugging, gunsel (look it up) would consider!
What a fool of a tool.

Reading that article was anti-gun buzz word bingo, and my card was full in the first paragraph.

I've always thought the FiveseveN was (for civilian use with civilian-legal ammunition) a pointless, overpriced toy.

Now I know better! I gots to get me one'a them lion-killin' pistols.

Linoge said...

Well, hell, if that man actually has the nerve to honestly go out and hunt those particular animals with that particular handgun, he would certainly have my respect and potentialy admiration (once I get past the ohmygodthatisstupid moment).

As it is, however, he is nothing more than an ignorant bureaucrat with too mch power.

We really have too many of those...

Let's take up a collection & send the Chief on a safari with a 5.7. And immediately after, we'll take up a second collection for his burial - assuming that there's anything remaining to be buried after he's eaten.

Idiots all.

Anon 5:38, we could maybe get the lion to poop into a small casket afterwards. I figure the case the 5.7 came in would do.

Buck said...

Lions hell, you could hunt dino's with that gun!

Oh noes! 57 caliber vest buster assault pistol!

Seriously, where's the exit? I'm ready to get outta this madhouse.

SpeakerTweaker said...

Oh, you gunnies, all thinking alike. Me, with my full-on mastery of all things firearms, could totally wax any large game with that FiveSeveN.*

*provided it were unconscious and I could fit the muzzle far enough into the ear canal...

Wow. Stupidity should hurt.

Tam do you need a hunting license and tag for shooting fish in a barrel?

What if the Lions, Tigers, and Bears were wearing body armor?
