Slaves2Darkness: offmymeds: "He's played a lot of Call of Duty and has a lot of knowledge about guns and what to do in a tight spot."I know what she means. I've played a lot of Warhammer40k, so I know how to handle Ork invasions.I've played a lot of Batteltech, so I know how to handle a 70 ton walking tank.

ChipNASA: If her "boyfriend" plays Call of Duty so much, he's never been in a "tight spot" in his life.
Coiled Hot 1: ChipNASA: If her "boyfriend" plays Call of Duty so much, he's never been in a "tight spot" in his life.Maybe her snatch??
BHShaman: People don't know shiat about what it takes to handle a real situation with real people and real pullets.
azmarine: Pocket Ninja: It's a well known fact that the marine core watches online game boards and tries to recruit the elite Call of Duty gamers.It's the Marine Corps and you are a moron.
BHShaman: vegasj: Can't find a better anti-gun source?While the video is obviously slanted, the simulation speaks volumes.The comment was more towards mall ninjas, airsoft, and CoD players who think their hot shiat because they can go get a real gun, aim straight, and then qualify for a CCW. Then, assume they will be kicking ass and taking names.BTW... I've shot guns since I was 5. My Dad was a SWAT member.People don't know shiat about what it takes to handle a real situation with real people and real pullets.Unless you have had significant tactical training, your best bet is to either run like hell or, failing that opportunity, play dead. A CCW WILL NOT help most people. And that is not an "anti-gun' statement.
TheSteamingPile: 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....PopsSorry, 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.
Insatiable Jesus: DaCaptain19: Marcus Aurelius: If he was really on top of things, he would have noticed the shooter was firing an AR-15, and then simply waited for the thing to jam.You must have a really cheap AR-15. My Colt H-Bar Match Competition AR-15 never has jammed on me once. And I shoot it a LOT. Of course I also clean and oil my guns - you know - maintenance? That helps as well.-----------------------Mags seem to have more to do with jams than the gun itself, in my experience. My pre-ban 30 rd mags have NEVER caused a jam for me, being the real deal. But I've got some cheap 10rd mags that can be counted upon to jam at least once in an afternoon. Granted, this is 7.62 and a real AK I usually shoot, but my Valmet in .223 has never jammed on me with the factory 30rd mags. Cheap ammo might also be a factor?
vegasj: 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....Popsdude, 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?
Insatiable Jesus: 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.
