Gun Pr0n

Well, sort of.

So what’s the most embarrassing gun you’ve ever shot, or the most embarrassing thing you ever did or saw on the range? Like say, using Israeli surplus green tip penetrator ammo on a poor, defenseless Dallas indoor range. Not pointing any fingers or anything, but those of us who were there know the range destroying centurion I’m talking about. 🙂

Firing Pakistani .303 out of a No. IV Mk. 2. Two out of every 5 rounds were outright failures to fire. The ones that did fire, I had time to steady up my sight alignment/ picture before the round actually fired.

ooohhh that is just gross. And yes, I was there at the great range assassination.Which could have been even worse. He could have been using the fearsome white-tipped ammo.

Ah the poor, much derided Hi-Point… straight blowback, ergonomics of a toaster and that godawful ZAMAK slide. And yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbvvurXmAmg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FoWpog5KU4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKkQm5TRaWE Yes, they’re a terrible POS. But you have to admit, they’re a very tough POS. Most embarrassing moment? Having an AD while unloading an old .22 rifle of dubious lineage a friend of mine loaned me. Safety engaged,… Read more »

I actually have one of these Hi-Point C-9s stashed in the boat. Ugly, cheap, suspicious fit and finish and runs forever. Can also double as a hammer in a pinch. Penetrators at an indoor range? Nice. Wonder how many rounds it took before the screaming started. My worst firearms moment? Being handed an M1a in a neighbor’s backyard at age… Read more »

I’m not ashamed to admit it, I own two Hi-Points. I fell into a deal with a basket case 995 carbine and turned it into a rehab project with child. Then I figured since it runs the same mags as the 9mm pistol I might as well pick up used one of those. After some serious tinkering they run just… Read more »

All I know is ….THAT RANGE NEEDED TO DIE! IT WAS TAUNTING ME!

Guess I shouldn’t have used that mag from from the bottom of my kit…….

The thing that saddens me the most about that “incident” is that I cant even claim alcohol was involved…..

But those sparks on the backstop was kinda kewl….

So what’s the most embarrassing gun you’ve ever shot, or the most embarrassing thing you ever did or saw on the range? I seem to remember a certain Marine/LEO/Magnificent Ass firing his service gun hell for leather at metal plate targets and not hitting a single one. Should have seen him slapping those mags in harder and harder, while scorching… Read more »

At one time in my teens I got my hands on a Llama .22 semi auto handgun. Thing was kinda cool (45 lookin) and was pretty much a paperweight after one round….occasionally it would feed one from the mag, but never more than that before jamming…..it was so junky that i cant even remember what I did with that gun.… Read more »

At a range firing a 30/06 (is that correct way to put that?) for first time, I had no idea there was going to be so much recoil and had my eye and face too close to the scope and got me a big old gash across the bridge of my nose. This was at an indoor range in Austin,… Read more »

Worst gun moment? In 1982, I was “Helping” my brother clean his guns while he was calving – he’d spent several days shooting with me, and I figured it’d be a nice surprise to clean everything up for him. I took apart his S&W .686 a bit… too thoroughly… (I’d never disassembled anything but a M1911A1 and a M14 to… Read more »

Embarrassing gun-related stories? Hmmm… There was that one time when I was about 11 and got to fire a 12 gauge side-by-side for the first time and promptly discharged both barrels at the same time. I’m sure that I hadn’t been positioned DELIBERATELY in front of a muddy puddle too. Right. Or more embarrassing, when I was an adult who… Read more »

Slightly to the right of Gingis Khan @ #: Now… I hesitate to write this, but… When John Moses (PBUH) set out to design the pistol that became the Hi-Power, he was working for FN. His Colt patents were still in force and he was in the unseemly position of having to work around his own ideas. The original design… Read more »

I traded for a .36 Navy percussion knockoff. The caps had been on it so long they had a green edge on ’em. I rigged a string n’ clamp to test it,, nada. After cycling it a couple dozen times, got the tools, ‘took it apart, clamped the cylinder into my vice,, and the instant I poked the first cap,,… Read more »

Back in the (I think) ’83 I wasted my money on an AMT “Hardballer” .45 auto longslide jam-O-matic. I took it to a busy range and couldn’t feed the damn thing with a spoon. A great deal of mirth was had at my expense. I would rate it in the Hi-Point/Jennings/Lorcin realm, just a hell of a lot more expensive.… Read more »

The boo-boo I remember most is the day I decided to do some four-position work with an ’03A3.
Getting the sling right for prone took a lot of cinching up…first shot, the cocking knob dead-centered
the end of my nose. Everyone was amused but me.

Went to the range for my first few shoot sessions, and lo and behold, guess who forgot his ear protectors. All of a sudden this pair of hands lands on my shoulders, a third set of hands jams the ‘phones on my head, and the same set of hands smacks me upside the head but GOOD. A face appears above… Read more »
