View Full Version : Help me out here fellas

Use to post here all the time, just came back now. Anyways, I'm having a little debate on another forum. Someone posted this video of soldiers in vietnam smoking out of a shotgun. This other forum is non-firearms related, so they could use some guys who know their stuff to smarten them up, because apparently they don't agree with me. Here's the vid.


What I tried to explain was that putting a gun barrel in your mouth is plain ignorant, no matter how "sure" you are that it's not loaded. Every gun should always be treated as if it's loaded. Apparently nobody on this other forum agrees with me, and I'm very frustrated. Please give your input because I am linking this thread over there for them to see.

I don't understand your argument. Are you arguing that the soldiers never "shotgunned" or are you arguing one should not put a gun barrel in one's mouth?

I'm arguing that nobody should ever put a gun in their mouth. Amazing isn't it? That I actually have to argue about that.

Yes, you're correct on both counts. a) That you should not actually have to argue such a point and b) one should never put a gun in one's mouth.

BTW, if you're arguing with individuals who are actually so stupid as to
deny (b), you're wasting your time.

it was done all the time.
and if you spend an incredible ampunt of time with guns and with other people with guns it gets very relaxed.
