I've touched on it before but it's time to go in depth. I’m hearing it so much lately that now it’s like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard. Hollywood gets it wrong, the media gets it wrong, video games get it wrong and even firearm instructors get it wrong. This only goes to further the problem. Should it bother me as much as it does? Probably not. At the risk of being annoyingly pedantic, however, I want to set the record straight:
“Clip” and “Magazine” are not interchangeable terms.

If you spend any time around gun stores, gun shows, or even shooting ranges, you’ll hear it. Some guy will always pipe up and contribute what he believes to be pertinent and solid advice. Sometime, it’s good advice. “If you’re finding the recoil on that .40 to be bad, perhaps dropping to 9mm will help” and such.
Sadly, there is a chance you’ll get advice from someone that may not be qualified to be offering said advice. I believe the technical term to describe this person is “full of it”. For most people that have been shooting for more than..oh...say a couple months or so, it’s pretty easy to spot Mr. Full Of It. He is in very close relation to the Fun Shark, by the way. Some would say he’s even the same guy.
For a brand new shooter, the urge to listen to any advice is strong. I’m here to tell you: don’t take his advice. Here is a list of the most common things you’ll hear and why you should just say “Cool story, bro” and move on.

I just love looking back at the progress of guns from the hand cannons of ancient China to the advanced weapons of today. You can tell, as time went by, people knew and understood the inherent weaknesses of the time. It's interesting to see how some of the more creative (yet less engineering inclined) people thought of ways around the problems.

I'm going to preface this by saying this was a forward of a forward of a forward (etc etc). I have no idea who originally wrote it and any attempts I've made over the last couple hours have been fruitless. Whomever wrote it, hats off to you because this is hilarious!

I’m going to address this one to the fellas, just because I don’t normally see women behaving this way. It really goes for everyone though..
Before I begin, I want to say that this has nothing to do with safety rules, which we should all police each other on all the time. Hurt feelings or not, safety is paramount.
I want to tell you guys something that your girl wants to tell you, but holds back out of worry for hurting your feelings. I think it goes a little something like this:
“I really like going to the range with you. Shooting is really fun and it’s nice to have an activity we can enjoy together. But your unceasing, unsolicited critique of every detail of my shooting is annoying the bejesus out of me. If you don’t stop talking I’m going to have to pistol-whip you. Hush your face. Kthanksbye”.
Now dudes, don’t take this too hard.

Hello. My name is Rebeccaguns. I like kittens and rainbows and Pina Coladas and long walks on the beach. I also like stainless steel 1911s chambered in .45, vintage sniper rifles, fixed blade hunting knives and videos of things exploding.
If I could have any car it would be an Audi S5 (or a BMW Z8, if I'm having a real James Bond kind of day).
My favorite gun is my CZ 83, though my new Smith and Wesson Shield is gaining ground fast.
I spend most of my time being the other half of PHLster holsters, shooting guns, writing a blog about guns, making up voices for my ridiculous cats, shooting more guns, thinking about shooting more guns, thinking about all of the guns I want to buy, etc.
Up until about 2 years ago, I didn't know a Glock from a hairdryer. I am genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised to be here. I have found gun folks to be some of the warmest, funniest, smartest and most down-to-earth people I have ever met. Thanks for welcoming me into your commun ...

See if you can name the movie: A lone person, let’s call him Steve, wakes up from a good night’s sleep. His house is empty so he assumes his family is out on a Saturday morning. As he goes through his morning routine, he doesn’t seem to notice that outside his home things seem a bit...off. It’s only when he retrieves the newspaper that he realizes: the world has gone to hell. Zombies are roaming the streets. He flees back into his house and sees his wife. She turns around and attacks him. Yep, she’s a zombie. He fends her off then flees the house with the only weapon he could find. He jumps in his car and speeds off but wrecks it shortly thereafter. He’s rescued from the wreck by a ragtag and ethnically diverse band of survivors. They make their way through the city to a “safe zone”, getting picked off one by one. One of the survivors gets bitten by a zombie in one of the attacks but hides it from the group. Later, he turns at the worst possible moment. In the ...

There's something about Thursdays that annoys me. Thursday has always seemed like a barrier because you know that you still have another day before the weekend. You just have to get through Thursday.
What does this have to do with gun? Not a darn thing. Here's something funny and gun related to get you through your barrier day.

Looking for the review of "SHOOT"? Click Here (a database problem changed the links on the site)
I started Gun Noob with the goal of preventing the kind of stuff you see in this video. People not holding the guns right and injuring themselves and potentially others. If I keep one person from making the kind of mistakes seen here then I will consider this site a resounding success.
In the meantime, enjoy this compilation of incredible gun fails!
