These GIFs will click with any real gun enthusiast out there.
Whether your a hunter or a hardcore gun enthusiast we generally all encounter the same types of people or problems. Whether it is someone you see at the range other common mishaps that can happen with firearms.
These eight GIFs demonstrate just why some people shouldn’t be allowed to handle firearms, as well as make any range hound crack a smile.
1. The guy who swears he has handled guns before
We all have that one friend who swears they have shot tons of guns before heading to the range. They often quickly show their ignorance when they step into the booth.
2. The Action Hero
Thanks to Hollywood’s numerous big screen action heroes there is always someone who needs to try to show they are just as tough with the one handed shot. Thankfully recoil is often there to remind them otherwise.
3. The “Sniper”
Another type of person we all encounter is the “sniper,” or so they think.
4. The Cowboy
While it may be all fun and games to spin guns on your finger like the wild west cowboys, it is just plain stupid to try this with a live firearm.
5. Barrel Peeper
I will never understand some people’s need to want to look down the wrong end of the barrel of a loaded firearm. I guess I was just never curious enough to tempt fate like this guy did.
Learning and practicing a quick, tactical draw is a great skill to learn, as long as your have the correct holster to be doing so. There are some serious precautions and checks that need to be performed before hand so you don’t end up with a bullet in your leg.
I’m pretty sure this is something we have all done at least once with a new firearm. You take it apart and forget one small step or don’t place a piece in just right. Which is why it is great practice to cycle and dry fire your weapon before you attempt to use it.
8. Not knowing when too much gun is too much gun
Sometimes there is such a thing as too much gun. For some reason we all get that gleam in our eye when someone whips out a super high powered firearm. That gleam quickly vanishes when your lying on your back or your shoulder feels like it gets disintegrated upon pulling the trigger.
These GIFs were sure to give you a laugh as you think back on times your friends, family, or others at your local range have fall into one of these categories. Share this will fellow gun enthusiast to see who they can match with these, you never know one might be you.
