Glocks As Percussion Instruments

Remember Vitaly Kryuchin? That amazing Russian IPSC shooter who dual wields Glocks? If not click here.

Well Vitaly is at it again. This time performing music with his Glocks as musical instruments. This reminds me of those Musical Targets that Chris Cheng plays with but with a little more flair. For one, he is dual wielding Glocks and has professional accompaniment.

Upon closer inspection, Vitaly is using .22LR conversions on those Glock pistols. At first I was impressed by the recoil and muzzle climb management. Then I noticed the magazines with the slot and you can see the .22LR brass.

    What a great way to change the story dynamic of the classic “bomber/assassin at the opera” movie trope. I hope Spielberg is paying attention…
