It's a joke you realize?
I did not realize that. The entire video was a joke? Man, my critical thinking skills need dusting off.
I realized it's a joke, but I'm embarrassed to say I didn't get it. (I mean, I got some things that are funny about it...) Then again, I'm a pointy-headed, soccer-loving, communist European who still doesn't get the whole US gun thing in spite of having lived here for nearly twenty years. Can you help me out? (After all, things get a lot funnier when you have to explain them!)
>I did not realize that. The entire video was a joke? Man, my critical thinking skills need dusting off. *Absolvo te* It's a bunch of gun nerd jokes. But you should probably have figured something was amiss when it showed the 9mm round bouncing harmlessly off of a tin can...
DJ,It's like the single biggest joke among U.S. shooters--there's this cult of the .45 ACP and the Colt 1911 (the very angular automatic you see U.S. troops using in WWII movies). The 9mm (aka the "Europellet") is said to be too small a caliber. That's what all that nonsense was about how "there's one round that just won't do--the 9mm Luger" and "no other round has been fired so frequently in combat to such little effect," and "The 9mm causes unsightly, but mostly painless flesh wounds" while the .45 "produces a massive void in the body cavity that makes the body collapse on itself" and all that...Not really funny if you don' already know how nearly-accurate that all is. So many shooters have this nearly religious devotion to the .45, and really do sometimes talk as if getting hit by a 9mm round really just wouldn't be all that bad. Anyway...combined with the cheesy quality, it's ah...really funny...to some people I guess...Right then. Let's move on...
Ha! Thanks Winst. That is interesting and actually kind of funny.
