    Video - Assassin points gun, pulls trigger, nothing happens.

    Watched this video and noticed the following:

    The assassin at arms length, points his gun at the head of his victim and pulls the trigger - nothing happens. You can see him pull the pistol back, look at it, (at .02 seconds) and I think he tried to rack another round but got knocked down by others on the stage.

    I'm thinking the safety was on. What's your guess?

    Just shows what adrenalin can do - even to the bad guys.

    oops,I put the mag in, but forgot to rack one in. wonder why the gun doesn't get credit for not killing that guy, if it's like the anti freedom guys say,"it's the guns"

    I heard a report somewhere that it was a gas gun or something that doesn't fire a projectile but shoots out gas and can be harmful at close ranges. I'm almost positive that is what our local news station said about it.

    Will report back when I find more...

    Edit:

    This article makes mention of a gas pistol loaded with pepper spray: Ahmed Dogan: Was assassination attempt on Bulgarian politician a hoax? | Mail Online

    "Police said the gun used during the attack was a non-lethal gas pistol and deputy chief prosecutor Borislav Sarafov told reporters Enimehmedov faces up to five years in prison for hooliganism and up to six years for making a death threat."

    I agree, it looks very much like a small .380 or even single stack 9mm at a glance.

    Wow. If I had been caught doing half of what I am guilty of through the years I would be gone for life.

    Might well have been lethal is he had pointed at someone that was armed.

    Interesting that an assassin would choose to use a non-lethal tool in their line of work...

    By gas pistol I'm assuming it was something akin to an AirSoft pistol. Some cheap imitations of which I have seen have to be 'cocked' after each bb is fired.

    The video also shows the politician and his security staff were ASLEEP. SA FAIL.

    Nonetheless, glad it turned out OK.
