10 epic weapons fails you'll have to see to believe
Shooting a weapon for the first time is an experience you’ll never forget. Squeezing off those first epic rounds can make any gun owner smile from ear-to-ear.
On the flipside, many gun owners have no freakin’ clue how to hold the weapon, chamber a round and accurately fire it at a target without getting hurt.
It’s not that hard, and safety is key. But for some reason lots of people just don’t get it.
There are several safety rules put in place for a reason, but countless people throughout the globe treat their weapons as if they were toys — and many end up having accidents in the process.
So check out these epic weapon fails from people who hopefully learned a lesson.
1. Trying out the elephant gun. Take #1
Remember, keep that buttstock pressed HARD to the shoulder, or this will happen.
2. The single-handed, teenage rifle slinger
This teenager needs to use 2-points of positive control and build some muscle.
3. Trying out the elephant gun. Take #2
Maybe put it on a bipod and go prone bro.
4. Quickdraw McGraw over here just shot himself.
Even the seasoned pros make mistakes, but g*ddamn this is bad. Remember, finger off the trigger until your sights are on target.
5. He’s so good, he shot his own cover right off his head.
This would have been a cool trick if it were a magic trick. Rule #1 and #3: treat all guns as if they’re loaded and never let the muzzle cover anything you aren’t willing to destroy (unless he really, really didn’t like that hat).
6.Trying out the elephant gun. Take #3
I guess he won the “who could fire this big ass rifle contest?”
7. What happens when someone gets super high and attempts to operate a heavy machine gun.
Where were these guys at when my unit was deployed?
8.This is proof that ghosts can and will shoot you if you’re not being careful.
His Uncle Tanner just got his payback from beyond the grave.
9. The shirtless gangster.
We’re going to leave this alone.
