    I laughed but it sure looked like the woman had some pretty dangerous gun handling habits. Her finger was on the trigger and it looked like she tried to pull it but it didn't fired because it was cocked with the safety on. :eek:

    I'll admit to having laughed as well, but also think this was a very dangerous stunt and he is lucky there wasn't a ND involved. Especially since they are apparently in an urban area where the potential for collateral damge is immense. Couple that with her poor handling of the weapon and they were fortunate this is only generating laughs and not lawsuits.

    I would appreciate if a Forum Administrator would contact me regarding the comments in this thread pertaining to either canceling my membership or letting me know why threads and comments like there are in this thread are (un)acceptable and what we, as responsible gun owners, will do, to make sure that this is not common place behavior.

    It's not funny. It's not safe. And personally, as a Texan with many years of experience pertaining to firearms(including 6 years active duty with more than 14 months in the Gulf), I cannot understand why a 'Texas Gun Forum' would endorse such behavior.

    Personally, I have my CHL and I am in favor of future court cases re-establishing our rights as responsible gun owners. There is nothing funny about disregarding the rules of safety or irresponsible actions with guns.

    Oh, and the fact that the wife will never touch a gun again is just great. That's exactly the image we wish to portray. Let's scare away people who might be open to our cause. The gentleman in this video is an idiot, and should be properly admonished. If this forum is a place where things like that are funny, or common place, or acceptable, please let me know.

    Regards,

    Personally, I really didn't find it to be funny. That's definitely not a good way to go about portraying firearms to those less experienced. Had it been a forum member that actually made the video, you can guarantee the response would be quite a bit more harsh.


    *Edit* Oh wow, I thought the video in question was a completely different one. After just watching it I can honestly say, that guy is a complete moron. That was definitely some juvenile behavior. That situation could have ended up significantly worse if the gun were loaded (I'm hoping it wasn't). When I was a kid, an intelligent person once told me it's not good to laugh at someones expense. I tend to agree.

    When this forum started, it was marketed as a place to discuss the safe and responsible gun ownership. I don't mind crazy video threads and such since I still live for America's Funniest Home Videos, but this video displays a perception that every responsible gun owner is trying to reverse. I made a comment about how funny this was being the practical joker that I am, but I would NEVER attempt a stunt like this.

    As far as comments in this thread, I must agree with Alan entirely.

    I must now slap myself on the wrist and this thread will be locked. Thanks!
