How Not To Take A Gun Selfie

Last week this photo was going around social media. This young man took a bathroom selfie of himself holding a revolver with a backwards high capacity magazine. This has inspired thousands of people to lampoon this image.

MARS Special Operations Group created an album on Facebook and ran out of space. They believe there is a cap of around 1,000 photos. Go here to check out the rest of these hilarious photos.

    It will not bother me to never see this meme again. The high-cap pizza mag was funny…

  • Colin

    Any chance to see a link without a Facebook sign up page first ? !..

    • 2hotel9

      The link is to farcebook, so, no.

    • Nicholas C

      The album is a Facebook Album so no. You are going to have to suck it up and create an account if you want to see the 1000 images.

      • Roger V. Tranfaglia

        No thanks…….
        Not EVEN to comment!

      • Oh noooeees! Not the Bookface!!

  • wetcorps

    So this is the famed Mozambique drill.

    • 2hotel9

      You win the intrawebsthingy for the day!

    • M.M.D.C.

      “He’s screwed.”

      “Socket to him!”

    • Zebra Dun

      “WINNER!” Give this commenter a cigar!

  • mikewest007

    At least none of them shot themselves in the head by accident, as it happened to some idiots taking selfies with a loaded gun.

    • Burntout Aussie

      Yes,. . .I concur with your thoughts SIr. At least the guy with the power drill hasn’t “Loaded” the chuck. . . . . .

    • Giolli Joker

      That’s Darwin’s law taking over for the betterment of mankind.

  • Mcameron

    hey, do yall remember when TFB used to actually post good articles?……ah the good old days

    • 2hotel9

      and yet you keep showing up and complaining. What an empty life you must have. Sprout a sense of humor, Francis.

      • mcameron

        Hoping maybe they’ll get the hint and start publishing quality articles again….. Idea rather this blog not slowly start turning into the crap like they have over at ENDO….

        • KestrelBike

          Have you applied for a refund yet?

          • 2hotel9

            hehehe, I wants my moneys back!!! I wish they would start using beef tallow in their fries,,,,,,oops, wrong thread.

          • Slip 2000 is beef tallow?

          • 2hotel9

            Hey!?!?!? Don’t mess around and get me sued, dude.

          • Barney Samson

            Sorry- best we can do is FireClean… 😉

          • 2hotel9

            Ian and Karl proved it cooks eggs OK. Perhaps after AT gets finished a$$ banging them in court they can sell it to McDs!

        • BattleshipGrey

          I remember the days of getting maybe 3-4 articles a day, sometimes not even that much. Compare that to about 10-13 or so now, plus video series. Not every article is going to appeal to you. You clearly have internet and thus can search any firearm related topic you want and are not limited to TFB. Perhaps you can make your own article and see if Steve will run it as a guest post.

    • Joshua Madoc

      This site is still leagues better than Kotaku and, by proxy, Gawker.

  • 2hotel9

    I got bombed with links to this idiot selfie.

    • DIR911911 .

      that’ll teach you to have friends

      • 2hotel9

        Yea. Who needs enemies?

  • Edeco


    As an AWB survivor (I thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts), I have lots of banana mags, and happen to have access to a 1930’s revolver… was tempted to join in but I like my privacy as a gun owner.

    • DIR911911 .

      if you could just supply your address and social security number we can make sure you are removed from “the list”. 🙂

      • Edeco


  • Anomanom

    OTOH, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make a belt fed revolver for ages.

    • DIR911911 .

      • Giolli Joker

  • Rodford Smith

    Needs someone holding an automatic and a speedloader. 🙂

    (Just for the symmetry, mind you.)

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Crossbow girl is cute.

  • Nick Guglielmi

    He’s clearly showing off a Dardick 2.0 prototype

  • Paul Joly

    That stoned Swedish guy.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Hey now, maybe he works for H&K.

  • Rock or Something

    Revolver with an extended mag.

    • Andrew Dubya


      • Tassiebush

        I was going to say that.:)

  • I’m sorry, but think you should include the apex of the degradation. Ian McCollum posted one on Reddit, to which a reply was swiftly made – with the note “Final ClipBeltMag Shenanigan Post”.

    • n0truscotsman

      HAHA! well done!

    • Joshua Madoc

      Glad to see that a highly educated man made very good use of his extensive firearms knowledge to make this brilliant exhibit. 😀

      • Not to mention the opportunity to see his enviable pristine condition magazine-fed, disintegrating-magazine mortar

  • that_guy

    I’m go busta cap foo !

  • AR_Libertarian

    y’all done ruined his street cred.

  • uisconfruzed

    Thanks for the morning laugh with my coffee, now out my nose.

  • alex

    The one Drake of Mapgul posted with a desert eagle and a giant black dildo was hilarious.

  • lbeacham

    We need Government imposed selfie control.

    • AD

      Good one!

    • Longhaired Redneck

      That’s just common sense!

      • lbeacham

        That cuts the Government out.

  • Phillip Cooper

    And again the Internet fails to live up to its lofty goals.

    Retards, the lof of them.

  • Geoff

    The children are our future, as they say. Should bode well for us as a nation, as this young man shows us with his Obamaphone selfie. He is hip and happenin’. Embrace the future, gents. Stay armed.

    • That should be … Stay well armed and make sure you keep your finger on the trigger so you shoot yourself in the head ! 😀

      I think this picture will come back and haunt him when he runs for POTUS …

  • GRComments

    I still wonder if the original idiot was serious.

  • dltaylor51

    The revolver with the 30 rnd mag is as good one,the moron has his finger on the trigger as he is lowering to barrel to his head.

  • Jamie

    Wow! Semi-automatic pizza. Now there’s something we all need.

  • Rocketman

    The very first thing that I noticed is that he didn’t even have the “magazine” turned in the right direction. What a maroon.

  • georgesteele

    Two things:
    1. You can’t fix stupid;
    2. Thank God – who would we laugh at?
