ghetto style

Was at an outdoor, unmanned range recently...(which i love). and saw some of the funniest shooting ever. Im laughing right now just thinking about it.I am by no means a gun snob, but these guys took the cake.Thugmaster #1 who was tryin to teach his lil homie how to shoot was sportin the ever popular Lorcin .380 His partner had a nickle or chrome plated Jiminez 9 mm. The leader started to shoot first... Arm turned sideways, and thrusting his elbow out with every shot. Almost like he was a boxer throwing a jab. So after a watchful eye thugmaster #2 gave it a try. Sideways goes the arm, but without the jab. When all of a sudden i see him start hollerin and dancin. I thught that maybe he was performing a rap song, But come to find out his Jiminez was spittin hot casings into the air and one landed on the back of his neck... Thats when thugmaster#1 proceeded to tell his partner he was a fool, and thats the reason for the jab.(apparantly you are supposed to yell yeah, yeah, mutha #%#@a) after each shot as well. At this point I was getting such a kick out of these guys I decided to go talk to them... They were actually very funny. They asked me what kind of gat I was blastin with. They didnt seem to impressed with my "oldschool" 1911 with the "ancient looking" wood grips.But were very proud of the 2 beauties they just bought at a local gun show. After chatting it up for a few minutes they offered me to join them in smoking a blunt... I declined and was on my way...
gotta love it !!!!!

Yeah, I've heard that adds hundreds of feet per second to the velocity of the bullet.

"Sideways goes the arm"

Guess that means about the 9 o clock position with the right hand. I know it should never be done at the 3 o clock position with the right hand with a large caliber. Don't ask how I know.

The best part of this, for me, isn't the gat blasters-as i'm sure we've all encountered our fair share to varying degrees-but rather the fact that you took it in stride and actually went over and talked to them to enjoy the carnage first hand. That's exactly what I would have done. Much more fun. Good on ya!

Even offered to pass the bleezy, how nice of them

Shooting in that positition also increases the chance of a hot case going down your shirt. I watched a homeboy do that once. The whole firing line all found it rather funny.

Well, DJ Servo's here to interrupt the fat rhymes. Or something to that effect.
