The Weekend Funny: YouTube Gun Fails of 2014

I hope it does not need mentioned, but do not try dumb things at home with firearms. Our interest, hobby, and passion can have very dangerous consequences when used stupidly. Fortunately, some people record their stupidity for our enjoyment and learning.

In all seriousness, please do not be stupid with firearms… really. We like our readers in one piece.

    That gal sweeping her man with the muzzle made my cringe SO HARD. The worst part of that scene was her saying ” relax” at the end.

    • gunslinger

      it’s ok. what’s wrong? OMG.

    • tincankilla

      i’ve had a GF do that exact thing with me with a shotgun. it was at a range and she had about 10 people yell at her in a chorus, so at least it wasn’t just me….

    There are some pretty funny ones in there, but what kills me is the number of idiots that give tiny chicks a shot gun and let them get beat up by it. My wife would kick my ass if I did any of that to here.

    • gunslinger

      i’d substitue “tiny chicks” with “inexpierence shooters” i’ve seen enough “tiny chicks” that could hold their own with high powered weapons. plus there were some “tough guys” who couldn’t handle a gun in there as well.

  • gunslinger

    what happened with the shotshells about 22 seconds in? did he hit the primer on the shell in his hand?

  • Joshua Madoc

    These idiots are just convincing me to live and die by ironsights.

    Sorry, comrades, but I value my eyes.

    • ColaBox

      Yea screw scopes and all those fancy electronic doo-dads, iron sights all the way!

  • ColaBox

    Looks like that guy at 3:35 went with a Chinese knock-off belt instead of a real one for those tactical blue jeans.

    Eh my sense of humor doesn’t go very far with guns.

    Especially since a little girl was killed by a 500 smith because somebody had the wise idea that it would be amusing if she shot that fucking hand cannon I wouldn’t be willing to shoot myself.

    something about handing girls heavy recoiling guns pisses me off. To me, videos such as this only provide ammunition to the pro gun control crowd. “see? gun owners arent responsible!”, ad nauseum.

    • Stojespal

      “Haw haw, look at that, girls can’t shoot guns!” Misogyny much? I’ll grant there’s a rare few gunfails where guys are set up, but the majority of them is there to mock the girls. Who, if they weren’t being mocked, might just ENJOY shooting.

      • n0truscotsman

        Im not sure what it is.
        Whatever it is, though, It doesn’t humor me

  • CrankyFool

    When I started dating my wife and suggested she go to the range with me, she recoiled (ha!) in horror. When she was younger, her dad had taken her to the range and had her shoot a large-caliber rifle with scope and … well, you see where this goes.

    It took me forever to get her to try — we worked back up through 22 pistols, to 9mm pistols, and finally went directly (amusingly enough) to 12ga O/U for Sporting Clays, which she loves (in fact, for Valentine’s Day 2012, I got her an O/U). But it took much more effort than it should have, because someone was careless about how to introduce new people into the field.

    So forgive me if all of this “haha I made you shoot a pistol-grip 12ga and you got injured” humor leaves me pretty annoyed.

    “…flash my gun around…BANG…My mom is gonna kill me!” Had me laughing.

  • William DeWeese

    What most people said. Why alienate, embarrass and possibly hurt 52% of the population by setting them up to fail? If for no other reason, it may convince the women involved that they don’t want anything to do with firearms, and we males don’t need any more…..

  • big daddy

    It’s not funny. To me anything that has the potential to kill and maim has to be taken seriously and treated with respect Not just guns, I’ll include cars/vehicles and power tools, a friend cut off his thumb with a saw because the guy holding the piece of wood was an idiot. All the other comments are absolutely true, setting up someone to fail is not funny and it’s counter-productive. I’m a fun guy and guns are fun, but always, always safety first.

  • Boring old gun rights

    Probably not helping the cause to encourage dangerous behavior like this. Yes, you can say all u want in your article about how bad it is, but the act of publishing this article is poor taste IMHO.

  • austjb

    Not funny.

  • Vhyrus

    Most of these were just dumb.

    HOWEVER, the guy at :40 wearing the skull airsoft mask? THAT was freaking hilarious!

  • 308T

    Dude with the Punisher mask brought tears to my eyes!!!

  • John Lin

    Thankfully there isn’t enough firearm stupidity caught on film to fill the video. None of these videos I haven’t seen last year or earlier.
