Wow, there's a lesson for sure. When you screw up, then say 'I did that on purpose', you could be influencing historical record for years to come. Amazing!

Anyone see Carlos Mencia do his skit on how to teach Gangstas to shoot right. I think it was called Drive-by School or something like that.

There was one gangsta holding his pistol sideways and Carlos asked him "why do you hold it like that?" The hood replied "because I look good holding it like this." Carlos replied "you may look good but you shoot like sh*t." He then proceeded to turn the pistol upright and the hood was amazed and said "wow, the sights line up and everything."

He corrected 2 or 3 other hoods in a similar fashon... I was rolling. :D

EDITED: For Finch's delecate ears. :P

Actually, that method of shooting combined with the high ROF for the machine pistol was supposed to be very effective for controlling crowds.

And by "controlling" you mean the same version of "control" used in gun control.

I'm not sure what you mean, Prophet, but I meant that it looks to be effective in breaking up large numbers of tightly packed bodies.:)

I think he means "gun control = destroy all guns," "crowd control=..."etc.

Has anyone tried the 'gangsta' style of shooting? What was the experience like? I've always wanted to try one mag that way, but I can't ever find the range empty (some things are just to embarrassing to be done around others).

Lessee, he's pulling a mag out of a pouch...holding the gun sideways...

I did some plinking gangster style once. I made sure that I was FAR away from where anyone might see me. Being from Wyoming, I would be killed for shooting a gun like that. To tell you the truth, it made me feel dirty, and very "special". Don't try this at home kids.
