Sounds like he was suicidal to me. Never point a gun at something you dont wish to destroy, unloaded or not. Ive seen people sweeping a gun around while trying to clear a jam.
Heck, I’ll say it!
This guy must have been one of those dumb KIDS who by having a GUN (weapon) made him feel like a man by giving him a set of balls. Maybe the weapon also gave him power (in his little mind) that he felt UPBOVE the common folks.
Showing off a firearm is nothing more than a little snout nose kid showing off a NEW TOY. By showing off and PRETENTING that he KNEW what he was talking about made him feel empowered. Only thing that was reality, was the fact that he was just another DUMB AZZ kid with something that he couldn’t handle nor had the mental alertness to NOT POINT IT AT HIS HEAD!
I have been around weapons (little and BIG) since I was 12 years old. I did 21 years in the Army, with my time in the dirty sand box of the Middle East. I have been train (Army) in explosives and many types of weaponry. I know what a well place bullet or round can do to flesh, so this dumb kid isn’t going to get pity from me at all.
This is like the people who buy a firearm for protection, but NEVER train with it. Same dumb thinking as the guy we are talking about.
If you are man enough to BUY or trade for a weapon of ANY KIND, then for heaven sakes, be man enough to be responsible when it comes to HANDLING them! The herd of dumb people is now one short with MANY still waiting in line.
