Dirty Harry Fail — Idiot Loses Control of Gun

Lots of people think it would be cool to be the hero in an action movie — racing through streets, dodging bad guys, and shooting bullets to save the day. But the reality surrounding such actions is a whole other story.

Take this Dirty Harry fail video as an example. It was posted in August of 2014 and shows a guy walk on screen acting like a real bad ass with his 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum (also called a 500 S&W Magnum for those who know their guns). He’s out in a field, ready to shoot the weapon off into the distance away from innocent people, and have his friend film just how cool he looks when he does it.

But, as we said, reality is a whole other story. When this guy pulls the trigger he’s not ready for what happens when using such a powerful weapon, and the results are hilarious.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the this video, but everyone can learn from his mistake. No matter where you stand regarding gun rights laws, any sane person knows that you shouldn’t play around with guns under any circumstances. These aren’t toys, and if you don’t know how to properly use one, you have no business holding one. Because, while you may think you’re a big man with a gun, and you may consider yourself a power player, in reality, everyone knows you’re just a power tool. So put the gun down before you hurt someone — or get mocked on a site like First to Know.
