    I guess we know who was the quicker, and who the dummies were.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    That is quite irresponsible. Guns are not toys and those guys found out real quick not to trust the other guy

    I don't think we're giving full credit to the winner here... not only a quick draw but he also hit his target!! Quite impressive.

    That is a "game" that should be played when one is 10 years old....WITH TOY CAP GUNS.

    Looks like the gene pool got cleaner.

    Had this been a holdup attempt in a Wally World parking lot, it would have been great.
    Now this is just a crime of stupidity with some terrible prizes.

    Idiots. Loaded, unloaded, doesn't matter, you just don't play with guns. You never ever point a firearm at another person unless you intend to shoot that person.

    It's amazing. We read of police shootings where 80 rounds are fired with only 9 or 10 hits. Then somebody screwing around like this draws, fires once, and hits his friend in the chest. At least three ways this could have been prevented:

    1. Don't "play" with guns
    2. Follow the four rules
    3. Do a magazine check and chamber check every time you handle a gun

    One guy probably told other guy "Don't worry, I have the safety engaged on my Glock"

    Comes back to the "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes." And, violation of the rules of handling firearms. You can't fix stupid.
