It’s that time again, folks. The time when we analyze a video of someone doing some stupid crap that they shouldn’t have been. This next video has a lot of wrong going on in it, and I almost don’t even know where to start. The keyword there, is “almost.”
Here’s a hint: If you ask someone if they’re ready to shoot a firearm, and they say “no,” chances are pretty good that they aren’t actually ready to shoot it. So, don’t make them do it anyway just because you feel like getting in a good laugh. In fact, at one point in the video, she even asks, “why are y’all doing this to me?” If that’s not a plea for help, I don’t know what is.
Unfortunately, the woman is so very drunk that she can barely stand up straight, and seemingly needs to be held up. Or, is he there to balance her because she’s shooting a big-ass gun? A gun which, as the old-timer standing behind her knows, will knock her back. Either way, the woman was not at fault–at least not in my eyes. She never even should have been given this revolver to shoot. She was doomed from the start.
How did they comfort her? By saying: “it’s like a .22 Magnum, only louder.” Uh, clearly it produces a bit more recoil than a .22 Mag does. Poor lady smacked herself square in the noggin.
Take a look at her stance. Do you see what is wrong with it? When shooting a gun (especially one of that stature), you need to make sure that you’re holding the thing properly. Look at how bent her elbows are at the 36 second mark. She never stood a chance. Someone should have stopped this poor sap from punching herself in the head with that huge revolver. Or, at the very least, make sure she was holding it properly. One of the guys did tell her to hold it “tight” but that doesn’t really help because she still smacked herself in the head.
