The Silly String Glock

I’ll openly admit I’m not someone who spends inordinate amounts of time on Youtube looking at videos – no, not even gun-related videos – but I’ve certainly seen enough to be a bit entertained by this one. Youtuber MattV2099 made a 7-minute long video depicting the use of a Glock covered in silly string, and considering my first thought was that this must be yet another example of dangerous firearms behavior for the sake of internet fame, I ended up surprised. Of course, there are a few contradictions in here as well, but in a way it only makes things more entertaining. If you’ve never seen one of MattV2099’s gun videos before, take a look. It made me smile, so I thought I’d share with you all. Fair warning, there’s a bit of foul language in it.

    Good. I have always wondered if I was in a self defense situation involving one (or multiple) clowns whether their dreaded silly string attack would cause my Glock to jam. Now I know.

    Now we need tests with foam used in raves/techno nightclubs. Or if being inside a ball pit will cause a Glock to jam. Because the only thing that can stop a bad guy in a ball pit with a gun is a good guy in a ball pit with a gun.

    I hope you went through the proper channels to divulge such operator secrets. Last thing you want is Mr. Operator himself low crawling in your back yard one dark and stormy night.

    I’ve seen his license. It does say operator.

    Silly strings only useful for detecting and marking hidden trip-wire IED. Nothing else.

      Not true, it’s also useful for making people angry under the thinly disguised veil of humor

        Yelp, the usage of this weapons could cause some face getting punched for a reason. Then the face of the puncher also will be punched as retaliation. The government should classified Silly Strings as “Assault-Agitation Weapons” .

          Does RPC’s (rocket-propelled confetti) and under-rifle T-shirt launchers count, too?

    Another look at the bottom of the barrel.

  • What if it’s a hot chick wearing nuthin but Silly String and a pair of tactical thigh holsters – Would she be able to operate a Glock? This should be a video test.
    For Science.

    • Mystick

      Yes, for Science. I, uh…. need to make… measurements… and properly document the experiment…. photographically.
