I'm gonna burn in hell...

...for laughing at this (very NSFW) video:



I can only hope that, should the unthinkable happen and I drill one through my hoof, I have enough aplomb that a gag video can be made of the event, because I'm pretty sure that it will be hard to make a musical YouTube clip of me rolling around and clutching my leg while whimpering like a little girl...

Take comfort in the fact that you'll be in very good company. You have to hand it to the guy for keeping it pretty tight under the circumstances.

So why am I seeing the PonPonPon Girl Video? And why is Deborah Harry occupying her Spot on Sunday's Post? I know I've had a long day, but when the Interweb Starts Blogging Itself...

BGMiller said...

If you go to hell for laughing at that save me a bar stool. I'll be along shortly.

I believe that you or one of the other gunny blogger's had linked to this when it first happened...and we all complimented him on his courage to face the ridicule of his peers...especially when it was a perfectly understandable accident caused by a combination of a new holster and practicing CCW techniques. All that said, I hope that he can laugh about this as well because that was F'nnn HIGH-LARIOUS. Kudos for whoever put this together.

WV: ferse...I'm not the ferse, but Richard Daley is da' turd.

Awww, man. Now I feel bad 'cause I laughed too.

Matt G said...

This one will be played at my next safety briefing before qualifications.

Funny, funny stuff.

John B said...

Tam, you're not going to shoot yourself. Even you aren't badass enough to take a shot at you!

Joseph said...

Why am I holding this snowball? What are we doing in this basket and why is it so hot?

On a related note, have you been outside lately Tam, I think we've already arrived in Hell.

Nathan said...

Yeah, save me a barstool, too. Couldn't help that little smile creeping out. Nor the belly laugh that followed it.

Old NFO said...

I'll take the one at the end of the bar... Sadly funny, but I've got to give the guy chops for being honest and posting what happened to him!

"because I'm pretty sure that it will be hard to make a musical YouTube clip of me rolling around and clutching my leg while whimpering like a little girl..."

Speed it up a little and put it to "Yakkity Sax". Works every time.

Joel said...

Tam, I know it's been said many times many ways. But you owe me a monitor.

Zendo Deb said...

Tam, you are 6 ft tall. You don't do anything like a "little girl." (Or 5ft 11 3/4 in in my stocking feet, is the way I usually put it... though I haven't worn stockings since leaving corporate America nearly 10 years ago.)

SpeakerTweaker said...

Oh, GAWD, that is funny. I'll take my seat at the back of the handbasket, now.

Kristopher said...

It just needs to have his voiced auto-tuned to the music ...

Heh.

I stole this from Mad Ogre ( George Hill ), BTW. And it looks like it has hit the MSM airwaves already.

The poor guy is about to become infamous.

Robert said...

And, in case my comment earlier may be taken the wrong way, I hope this NEVER happens to you Tam.

no sympathy here, using an ancient and unsafe design like a 1911 pattern pistol is just asking for an accident ...
having said that, the glocks are no better due to the inadequacies of their design...
a proper DA/SA or DAO does away with the majority of the risks incurred due to poor training or generalized brain-deadness...
;-P***

Justthisguy said...

Anonymous @3:13, you are a grump and a buzz-killer, and fail to get into the spirit of the thing. Sheesh! And I thought that _I_ was somewhat autistic!

Keads said...

Save a Bar stool for me!

DirtCrashr said...

ROFLMAO! No better use for the can-can music.

@JTG
no, i'm a realist, but i have re-posted this vid at every gun forum i'm on, and people are pissing themselves laughing...
i also pulled out all my trauma gear to rebag it, cause i know someone will fark up somewhere sometime...

Tam said...

Anon 7:27,

Since you know all about how safe DAO guns are, perhaps you will enlighten the class on the origin of the term "racing stripe" in the po-po firearms training vernacular?

Kristopher said...

Bah. That rifling thing is just a passing fad as well.

Anonymous said...

tam, i wouldn't have a clue, my POST was over 30 years ago and i have never heard the term before from a 'po-po' viewpoint...
i would guess you are referring to the idjits who holster with their finger still in the trigger guard then fill their pants when they get an ND/AD/FU...
i know that i have seen far less f'ups with da/sa and dao/lem setups since they became common...
but the glocks and similar systems, well, its gotten so bad that i leave the range if a glock shooter takes a position near me...
i had 2 idjits in less than a month have ND's right next to me with their issue G22's...
i still have pieces of crap and concrete in my left leg from the sheepdip who was handling the 'empty' glock behind the line...
the divot is still there on the range floor painted red to show the idjits why there is no gun handling allowed behind the firing line...
every accident i have seen in the last 25 years has been a glock or an SA auto...
as a diehard 1911 fan it took me forever to make the changeover to a DA/SA and an LEM, but i'm glad i did...
ymmv...

John B said...

well spanked on anon 7:27. we have 4 such stripes on glock totin' myrmidons here on the spokane force, no stats for county though I'd suspect more!

Larry said...

I like my grok.

Maybe I can be like the cool kids one day and know all the reasons that I shouldn't.

Or not.

ASM826 said...

I laughed. I may re-post it. But it's like whistling past the graveyard, 'cause I know it could happen.

Tam said...

"tam, i wouldn't have a clue, my POST was over 30 years ago and i have never heard the term before from a 'po-po' viewpoint..."

Well, that would explain it, because it was only 25 years or so ago that I heard cops using it. (Of course they were older guys even then, so who knows...)

But yes, you are obviously well aware that people were cooking off rounds with .38 revolvers both reholstering and on the draw (especially in the days before everybody figured out that holsters should cover the trigger.)

Anonymous said...

Anon, 12:14--is this the same insufferable git who started trolling the last post about smoking?

Someone just shoot me now. This site has just gotten a lot less enjoyable.

Please go back to your hole and leave us in peace.

Kristopher said...

jf: Mission posting loons go to where people are having fun, because they can't get an audience otherwise.

Their own blogs readership hits consists of search engine webcrawlers, and nothing else.

Tam said...

jf,

Ignore him; he ain't nobody.

For some reason I thought the music would be "Someone Saved My Life Tonight".
