Shotgun Flip Loading might by really cool looking but it is just not the way to handle a firearm. Yes, this move from T2 makes this look very cool, but in practice you end up pointing the dangerous end of that weapon right at yourself. What if you had a misfire and it goes off just as your swinging it?
This is awesome in a movie, but not so much in real life.
Why do I show these videos? Because I like to go to the range and every one of these videos gives the non shooting public a bad impression of the total shooting community.
Always follow the four basic rules of Gun Safety:
- Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.
- Treat all guns as though they are loaded.
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
- Always be sure of your target and what’s beyond it.
Wear good Safety Gear and learn the proper skills to shoot safety.
This is a clear violation of Rule 1. No way that weapon is being pointed in a safe direction. Obviously when it is being twirled its being directed right at the shooter and anyone else behind them!
