The Weekend Funny: Opening Beer with a Rifle

I am jealous of Taufledermaus. Yes, I get to play with many guns, and scopes, and cool gear for reviews, but he has high speed cameras and a mastery of multi-media. This is, of course, not counting his never-ending equally bonkers and entertaining ideas. Combine both, and you get videos like the one below.

As you head into the weekend know it is indeed possible to open a beer with a rifle. Just watch the head.

Nathan S

One of TFB’s resident Jarheads, Nathan now works within the firearms industry. A consecutive Marine rifle and pistol expert, he enjoys local 3-gun, NFA, gunsmithing, MSR’s, & high-speed gear. Nathan has traveled to over 30 countries working with US DoD & foreign MoDs.

    Saw this article when the page loaded and thought I accidentally clicked on my ENDO bookmark by mistake.

    How is this funny? Not sure that this qualifies due to the crass stupidity displayed. Anyone here like to try this?

    • I found it amusing. Perhaps I need a new sense of humor?

      • gunslinger

        amusing yes. “weekend funny” no so much.

        Not really funny funny, amusing, yes. Maybe we need to do some soul searching? Everybody’s a critic.

    Yeah, kids go ahead and try this at home. However, if you screw it up and shoot yourself in the hand or get pieces of glass in your eye make sure you tell your lawyer that you saw it on THEFIREARMBLOG.COM. Booze and guns is never a good mix and yes, I am THAT guy.

      You’re that guy that completely who disregards personal responsibility, the cornerstone of safe firearms handling. If you have a problem keeping yourself from drinking a beer if it’s in front of you, address that issue with your local AA group. Tao doesn’t have that problem. Do you?

      • Nicks87

        Huh? I’m sorry sir, but I’m not really sure what you’re trying to say… …English must not be your first language.
        How does encouraging people not to drink and do stupid sh*t with firearms make me an alcoholic? And who the f*ck is Tao and why should I care about his drinking habits?

        • 101nomad

          (Sorry if double post.) No you are “not that guy”. You are a wannabe asshole. Nobody takes this seriously but you and your kinfolk. Try something different, sex outside your gene pool. Is that “English” enough for you? (sorry arrogance and ignorance pisses me off.)

  • Anonymoose

    Too bad you lose half the beer. :

    Maybe if you put a glass under it you could try to catch it as it spills out.

    I thought it was better when Homer did it with a revolver in the episode “The Cartridge Family”

  • FK

    thank god its just costco beer.

  • Giolli Joker

    And soon on shop shelves the tactical beer holder to keep the bottle at the right angle, available for picatinny rails and keymod…

  • Scott

    You can already do this with the Galil ARM without wasting the bullet and the beer.

    I have done it numerous times with mine. Use the bipod holder under the hand guard and voilà, bottle opened.

    Next week: Brain surgery with a rifle

    … didn’t work.

  • 101nomad

    My neighbors would not approve. Plus, I never know which beer would make me drunk enough to be dangerous. This is a tongue in cheek thing, no need for butt biting. Do you try everything you might see on TV too?
