    Shrine of the Mall Ninja - Remember way back when the Internet started to out idiots?

    Shrine of the Mall Ninja


    How many of you 'ole timers' were around when this was a 'live discussion' on the interwebs?

    Just for 'Poops and Grins', let us not forget..................................

    ...........

    This is a collection of the wisdom posted on the internet by a guy calling himself Gecko45. It all started back at the end of the halcyon summer of 2001, and his posts have created a certain urban legend that many refer to as the Mall Ninja. Hang out at any gun shop, gun show or shooting match and you’ll see one of these guys; you might even see a group of them since they are known to associate in the wild.

    The Mall Ninja is easily distinguished by an abundance of “tactical” gear, such as fatigues, a thigh holster (with, of course, a Glock), combat boots, bandolier and other accouterments that you’d usually only see on a SWAT operative. Median age is usually 19-25, and they tend to boast about their various exploits with certain Special Forces units, all of which they’re too young and idiotic to have joined (real Special Forces types don’t brag). They typically have opinions on everything, regardless of expertise, they are uniformly poor shots, and they tend to exhibit a frightening lack of safety training.

    The shadowy and shrill figure known as Gecko45 is the holy Dalai Lama of these dolts, but trust me, there are more. Many, many more.

    (NOTE: Warning to LEO and Military people - you might actually Laugh Your A@@ Off by reading the rest!

    Have a great Saturday. Semper Fi!

    Wow... I never realized how dangerous malls could be. Thank God they have up-armored golf carts!

    Well worth the long read for anyone not familiar with these brave men who risk their lives to make malls safer for an ungrateful public.

    Just pop open a beer and prepare to laugh your ass off.

    This, posted from one of the posters,SPECOPS, is the best


    Who do you think protects you from the scum of this society??? The cops, the FBI, the army???Guess again, it’s the guys guarding your companies, your banks, your schools, your homes, your supermarkets, and yes smartass, even your malls. What good are the cops going to be if a shooter shows up at your workplace??? How about your kid’s school, remember Columbine? I’ll tell you what the cops will do, call the SWAT team and screw around trying to locate the front door for 30 minutes, while you or your children are shot down like prairie dogs at a drunken machinegun shoot.We are on site, when the cops are cruising around handing out speeding tickets or harrassing prostitutes.

    Deinitely a belly buster.

    I first read this a little over three years ago when I joined the site. Saved the link in my "favorites". You definately don't want to read it if you are drinking a cup or coffee--liable to spew all over the keyboard! There are other "mall ninjas" besides Gecko45, but he has got to be the original and the "best"!

    How dare you question Gecko. Don't you know he was there for Bin Laden?

    I read this a couple of times a year it is still funny.

    I liked the part where he said he had the official ninja shoes, the ones that let him climb walls! I thought about that one last night after I had gone to bed and was laying in the dark laughing out loud.

    How dare you all mock a National Hero!? "The Geck" as we knew him, only wanted to educated you great unwashed masses on the superiority of SW weapons. And no, I don't mean the amateur gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson, I mean SPECIAL WEAPONS.

    In case you didn't know, Navy SEALS, MARSOC, PJ's, Green Berets and Tac Team-1 exclusively use SPECIAL WEAPONS. All others jam intermittently if you use hollowpoints.
