If her "boyfriend" plays Call of Duty so much, he's never been in a "tight spot" in his life.

Kazrath: BHShaman: Let's check in and see in this simulation how well that CoD and the Airsoft folks do with real firearms (shooting real ammo tipped with paint blotters) and in a simulation based on recent events....

Sorry, but I watched the whole video and that testing was VERY flawed.

#1 The student always sat in the same place for each test
#2 The "Gunman" did exactly the same thing in each scenario. Walk out, shoot the instructor. Turn, fire at the student sitting in step one location.

If the test was more randomized the results would have been quite a bit different.

I am not arguing one main point made in the video. Training for those circumstances will make you react better. There is no doubt about that. I am just complaining about the flawed test being used to "Drive home a point" when the test was geared for failure. I suspect it could have been a trained, active, navy seal and the results would have been the same due to the "script" the gunman was able to play.


Yep, you took the words right off of my fingertips. How many times, in a real world scenario, is a 'bad guy' going to know who the only person in the room with a concealed weapon is AND exactly where they are sitting. Hardly scientific, but then again, the anti-gun lobby will do anything to restrict the rights and freedoms of others.

Also, don't forget, this woman's 'boyfriend' would have had to called the killers sexuality into question at least a dozen times.

...Oh...yes...yes she did.

For that alone, this thread should consist solely of facepalm pics.

Insatiable Jesus: And No Shiat Sherlock. Except that the object of COD isn't to merely survive and get off the map. A gamer pulling out dual wield 44s and going auto aim on a mall shooter is fantasy. The idea that some kid huddled behind a counter knows that the shooter nearby will have to reload (thanks to him knowing something that he might not otherwise have understood) eventually is an entirely different animal.


Ok. You keep telling yourself that your awesome FPS skills are going to save your ass. I'll keep receiving training from people who know what the hell they are doing.

DaCaptain19: Jesus-f*ckin-Christ.

She should be kicked in the coont until dead. F*cking U.S. is so SO stupid.

I say that as a gun owner. If you own a pistol and you're not shooting 100 rounds or more per month at the range? Just f*cking melt the damn gun down. You clearly cannot be a responsible owner if you have no idea or training or don't continue to practice on how to actually hit your target.

For a country that has guns as part of its culture (U.S.) it is sad that 99.9999999% of our people are totally ignorant and/or plain retarded when it comes to using/owning guns. "OOooooo - 3 people died!" Do you know how many f*ckers died that very day from smoking-related illnesses?

Call of Duty....f*cking shiat for brains, you dumb-f*ck chick.


Spent 12 years in the USMC Infantry and I find your statement to be of the Highest Quality Derp!
Maybe you need all those hours, but you should shut your caulk holster about how the rest of decide to maintain our skillzzzzz.
Another spastic gun owner.. awesome.

This girl respects a guy's video game skills and all of you are complaining.

Wtf is wrong with all of you.

He probably said "yeah honey. I would have saved you and taken that guy out before he could hurt anyone"

And then what do you think they would have done?

---------------------

Pretty much what I figured. All of that time and money spent at the range means a helluva lot less than having control over your lizard brain when the shiat hits the fan. I experienced this first hand when learning to skydive. You begin to get upset during your training for that first AFF because they make you go through your procedures OVER and OVER again. All you really have to do is hold a box position and then find your ass to pull the pud. How hard can it be to find your ass? Not hard on the ground. But while falling out of the sky it becomes a little more difficult. Your brain goes into survival mode, you experience temporal disorientation and can stumble or freeze on the simplest of steps. But as you jump more, the Circle of Awareness begins to open up and what you remember will more closely resemble what you see on video later.

I would say that CCW holders would do themselves a great service by learning to skydive or engaging in some other thrill sport that invokes the lizard brain and learn to make friends with it because it is not your friend the first time you meet it.

dude, you posted a link to a video by ABC for one... and that has 1,630 thumbs up yet 19,557 thumbs down. Can't find a better anti-gun source?

thanks for that link I should post that on a friend of mine's facebook page since he posts CCW articles literally all the time and praises people who carry and thinks that anybody can pick off people.

I can see where having played those types of games might make one better suited than the average person to getting out of a hairy situation involving gunfire. Even in an FPS game cover and concealment are critical. An instinctive understanding of the fact that reload cycle takes time might save somebody's life. Maybe you see the mass shooter drop his AR and pull out a pistol at 50 yards and know that he probably doesn't have a chance in hell of hitting you and you take that moment to run. Or knowing that checking behind you is key.

Not saying it makes anybody an expert at small arms combat, only that some things might be learned that otherwise you would be ignorant of.

Obviously, you stand on the highest pile of corpses you can and fire your pistol into the air.
