Alex C. took this photo of his friend’s puppy with his H&K MP5K and Barrett .50 cal. Alex told me he is considering on naming his next dog Heckler. I suggested calling it Koch instead but he said there was no way he could run around his nice neighborhood shouting Koch (which sounds very similar to “cock”).
The photo shoot exhausted the puppy …

    I’ve heard Germans say it “coke”

    • Y-man

      Correct. Pronounced more or less as “Coke”. and closer to “Cock” but with guttural emphasis/ softening on the last syllable…
      [Google and YouTube German speakers are my friends!]

  • You’re supposed to pronounce Koch, “Korr”.

    • pineneedle


    • Smokey_the_Bear

      no, it’s pronounced “Coke” like the beverage.

    • dan citizen

      You are incorrect.

      English pronunciation, per HK:

      • iksnilol

        In German it is pronounced “ko-[choking sound]”.

        Like that.

        • Cymond

          I gave up on trying to pronounce ‘Koch’ years ago, after I read this.

        • dan citizen

          In German it is pronounced “ko-[choking sound]”.

          Seriously the best description ever.

          • iksnilol

            Oh, I got another one. Do you know how to pronounce ø/ö?

            It’s sorta like the sound you make before throwing up.

  • Jeffrey Scott Boyer

    Now these are tactical dogs

    • iksnilol

      Hope it isn’t political:

      How do you see those dogs are French?

      • Jeffrey Scott Boyer

        Belgian most likely.. The Belgian army prior to world war one utilized dogs to pull suupply carts. Historical not political

        • iksnilol

          Aaaand joke is ruined.

          The punchline was supposed to be that they are French because the gun is pointed backwards.

  • Samson

    it is most definitely “Coke” – and that is not my opinion that is Gospel truth, factual.

    • dan citizen

      Coke is pronounced cock?

      • iksnilol

        Coke is definately not for children then. Neither is cocaine.

      • David Sharpe

        Koch is pronounced Coke.

        • dan citizen

          Yes… but that’s not funny.

  • Y-man

    Well, you might run round the neighborhood shouting “Heckler!, Heckler!” and the neighbors might think the Stand-up Comedians’ apocalypse has finally come: Zombie Hecklers from the clubs are chasing you and you are shouting to warn them to hide their joke books!

    Most adorable operator of the year 2014!

  • das reich

    of the two in the bottom picture I would rather snuggle with the Barrett.

    • Rooftop Voter

      I snuggle with my Barrett and my 6 cats. Oh yes, girlfriernd too!

      • Pervert—LOL!

      • iksnilol

        How large is your bed? Two people snuggling, sure there is space for that but 6 cats and an anti-materiel rifle?

  • FourString


  • Rusty Shackleford

    Looks about right. An MP5k puts a smile on my face and makes me not want to give it back, but the Barrett always tuckers me out too.

  • Don Ward

    I wonder if that puppy uses the RetWeaver Stance while shooting…

    *wakka wakka wakka*

  • Clodboy

    A dog called “Koch” (german for “cook”)? That brings up way too many memories of the German children’s song in which a dog steals an egg from a cook and in response either gets beaten into a pulp with a spoon or straight up cleaved in half with a kitchen knife. o_O

    (if you don’t believe me, either Google “ein Hund kam in die Küche” or just try to imagine the kind of children’s song a 19th century German person would come up with 😉 )

    • iksnilol

      Lesson learned; stay out of the kitchen.

  • Fred Johnson

    That H&K is going to be a chew toy some day.
