His aim is so deadly, even his paper targets surrender....he's the most interesting man in the world.

riverrider said...

maybe he's shooting them in the nads?

Keith Pearson said...

Only if they're closer than ~15 feet.

AndyN said...

Not just that, every one of his shots is a headshot against a moving target, often while moving himself.

He's a Brit...outside of the military everybody in Britain thinks guns are EEEEVILLLLL

Oh come on guys...Magic Bullets. Worked on JFK didn't it?

I'm wondering where he keeps finding ammo for that hog leg. Conservation is not in his strategic plan. Seems like he would have switched to a 9m by now.

1. OK, folks, this is Hollywood, nothing is real. Not even if they want to have you believe that it is. Maybe a few dozen other people in the world could reliably shoot moving targets while moving, and something tells me that they'd be in a safe zone (defined as wherever they are, provided that they have enough ammo).

2. He's a f'ing Brit - without a uniform. The ones with uniforms are somewhat better than he is at this shooting thing. The rest think and act as if all shooting is "point the bangy thing in the general direction of a bad guy and keep pulling the trigger, plus try not to mess in one's pants while doing so."

3. Yeah, I've noticed that NO ONE on that show scavenges brass, and you'd think that with all of the houses and sporting goods stores that they must've passed they'd have found quite a bit of reloading gear. Nothing, not even saving brass from a revolver, which is dirt easy (no scavenging necessary, just dump in a paper bag or your pocket).

It doesn't matter because, zombies!!!

Oh no, here we go again, me having to be pedantic I mean.

He's not “a Brit” he's a lefty, luvvie, actor. Care to check some of your own East/West coast urban metrosexual, Hollywood 'greats' form? (Just like there, to see anything resembling a normal British male you'd have to go back to the Ealing Films era – I recommend 'Ice Cold in Alex' and the ilk).

Oh, and we still have over two million plus regular shooters. Not many out of a population of 60+ million I admit, but consider that in the light of an outright handgun ban, limiting long-guns to .22 in all but extremely rare specific cases, bureaucratic antipathy, police obstruction and literally reams of red-tape to even be allowed to look at a firearm and …. (Rural Britain and flyover country have a lot more in common than you'd guess from TV/MSM and films you know).

To put it in context, based on what we see of you in TV and film. Are all of your white males really either effeminate/gay, incompetent/buffoonish or leather-wearing, long-haired meth/pot-heads? I won't ask why it is that every senior (intelligent, wise, compassionate, …) supervisor/manager/politician there seems to be either black, gay or a woman, as that would apparently make me racist, homophobe and a misogynist (admittedly here we also have a <2% black and <2% gay population yet judging by TV it looks like to 60%). But I do have to ask 'are you all really that weedy?' since it's apparent that any 90 lb woman can easily kick any white American mans gonads up between his ears at will whenever she wants to.

A wee bit sensitive, aren't we Able?

Seriously, I do agree with you that the problem here is Hollywood and its perception and projection of guns. There is precious little realism. Maybe The Walking Dead should actually have a firearms advisor, given that the characters use them in damned near every episode?

Able said...

Tex

Sensitive? I'll have you know I'm an insensitive, rough, tough, mucho-macho grumpy old man and nothing else … Oh alright maybe a touch.

The problem is that unlike there, even with all the MSM leaning so far left, over here we have nothing, and nobody, who even vaguely represents the majority of people, so everyone thinks we're all lefty wimps too.

Seriously, over here weapons (and firearms in particular) are so déclassée that I nearly fell off my armchair when I saw that Hobbit guy, who's friends with the bad guy off Star Trek, using one (vaguely correctly – even if the Irish gay guy labelled it incorrectly, God why do even our bad-guys have to look like effeminate models from GQ magazine?) in Sherlock – you'd think they don't exist otherwise (well except for all the ones wielded by crazy, red-neck [white] Americans).
