G-18 automatic pistol. I don't know how but he looked to be very skittish about his grip the whole time he was shooting.

Why do you own a fire extinguisher when you have the fire department to protect you?
Once bitten, twice shy. Or in this case: Once shot, twice shy!

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
It looks to me like he was using his left hand to support the gun on instead of a 2 handed grip when the weapon recoiled back it slipped behind his hand and next shot got him
Wierd grip, and what was that on the floor? Looked like maybe it had a vertical grip on it that came off.
And such intelligent comments on Youtube, as always.
Stupid is as stupid does...no other comment!

The gun had a vertical grip that he was holding on to, and it must've slipped off. I've shot a modified Glock 34, very similar to that. It was at a range in Memphis. This one also had a vertical grip attached to the rail. I only used it for the first couple shots, because I had a nasty habit of grabbing too tight onto the vertical grip, and twisting the frame enough to stop the slide from cycling. It never occurred to me until just now, that it could've slipped off. The gun was amazingly controllable with a normal two handed grip, so thats how I shot it. I really dodged a bullet I guess.
Gun control is hitting what you aim at...
Live gun brought off the line, sweeping the muzzle across everyone behind him. I don't blame him for forgetting this basic rule, but ... if he's not careful, someone else is gonna get shot.
that looked like it hurt. and after reading some of the replies on that site im wondering how all those idiots even found the on button on their computer?
"Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result."
Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.
Well I'll say one thing, he took it like a man.
Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!
