Yep, it violates all kinds of gun safety rules
Lord I find myself practicing trigger discipline with Windex for God’s sake.
So for anybody reading this/lurking/new etc. . Don’t point ANYTHING that is capable of sending a projectile out at anything you are not willing to kill, maim or destroy!!!!!
I’d hate to be that guy’s defense attorney.
Gun shop owner keeps loaded Glocks on his shelves. Doubt it. Gun shop owner believes he picked up a bb gun in the mix of apparently loaded Glocks and fires it at someone's face.
This is such a crock of crap. I've heard people sticking up for this guy say that a bb gun Glock feels similar in weight to a fully loaded real Glock. Nope. His defense is asinine.
Pranks and practical jokes usually sound cool in the player's mind but are also usually not cool to the victim.
Sounds like the name of a new practical joker sit com.
I can say that at least one brand of BB gun glock is very scary close to the look and feel of a real deal glock, but a seasoned shooter or somebody who is in the business would surely know the difference. All that aside, shoot your buddy in the face with a BB gun, as a prank? Give me a break. If you're dumb enough to make that mistake you should stand ready as a man to face the full force of the law for being so stupid, even if it wasn't your intention, which in this case seems doubtful.....
My Glock BB gun is pretty darn identical. No excuse for shooting someone but under certain circumstances, there’s a tiny little minute slim chance a person could think it’s a G19. Still shouldn’t point a BB gun or any gun at anybody.
They’re pretty darn close. These new BB guns are so realistic it’s of hard to find the BB gun sometimes
Agreed. My brother was messing around with a G19-BB and it felt more like a real G19 than my G44 .22lr. The G44 feels like a BB gun to me, but I would never break safety protocol, I don't care if it's a plugged non operational revolutionary war era replica musket, you don't point guns at people, which we all know. As did the owner of the gun shop most likely.
He should win himself a lengthy stay at the gray bar.......
That's right. Poor excuse.
Ive seen a few that unless I actually LOOKED at them I wouldnt be able to tell the difference even on initial pickup.
The only way I can see it being an ACTUAL prank is that it was supposed to be an unloaded (unprojectiled?) "bb" gun with just co2 (or if thinking it was airsoft, propane) loaded, and he was just expecting it to make noise.
I like practical jokes, but if the other guy aint laughing at the end of them you done goofed, and I honestly cant see how pointing ANY gun at a person's face is funny.
In this case, the poor dead guy was the butt of the joke from a dumbass that though faking shooting at someone is funny. Throw the book at this dummy. So sad for someone that couldn't consent to the "joke" is now dead. How does this dumbass even own a gun, let alone a gun shop.
