Watch this gun collector earn his Darwin Award like a champ

This shotgun collector was explaining the vintage WWII gun he bought, when he decided to give an impromptu demonstration on how it works.

Luckily, no one was hurt. But he’ll have to spend some cash to patch up his ceiling.

    Misuse of the term “Darwin Award.” Nobody got hurt.

    I think before being allowed to own a gun, one should at least have mastered basic language skill.

    Darwin Awards can only be awarded posthumously. He lived, therefore, he doesn’t qualify.

    A Darwin Award honorable mention, but because he didn’t remove himself from the gene pool, not an actual Award winner.

    “And I like the store because it’s close to my house. I like it because it’s like 20 minutes away. Actually, it’s like 10, or 5, or whatever with traffic.” MENSA candidate here, folks.

    A Darwin award can be awarded to a living recipient. If the act involves destroying his means of reproduction, (ex. trying to get a high by putting his sexual equipment into a vacuum cleaner pipe, and turning it onto max. Removal of the sexual equipment prevents him from passing on his genes to the next generation thus removing himself from the gene pool even though he would provably survive.

    “Kamakazi style”…obviously, he doesn’t know what that means. Come to think of it, he doesn’t know much.

    This guy is a moron. The reason it loads/ejects from the bottom instead of the side is so that it can be used by left and right handed people without the shell ejecting in your face…he discovered the slam-fire feature accidentally…I have a Ithaca model 37 featherlight for home defense..

    The guy speaks with all the authority of an aardvark. Were did the trench warfare happen and he doesn’t know. Then loading a live shell and not removing it during the silly demonstration —— what’s his name? Phenus?

    Hopefully, this guy has to learn this lesson *once*. I’m not a military firearms expert but, if this was designed for trench warfare in a muddy place, this gun would have been made for WWI. The majority of fighting in WWI was in muddy trenches. Either way, this isn’t a “genuine” military weapon. By his admission, this gun is a clone. Too bad this guy isn’t a clone. He only gets to die once.
