Woman should have practiced shooting with a smaller gun

Jul 2, 2013 By Abraham

A bit more recoil than she was expecting…


  1. Riley says:

    Everything was wrong about this. The size of the weapon has nothing to do with the outcome, it’s how it’s handled. The butt of the gun wasn’t in the right spot on her shoulder, her hips should have been back, shoulders forward. Her hands were in the right spot though. Feet in a little wider stance. If she was set up properly, this wouldn’t have happened.

  2. Carol says:

    Anybody can shoot any gun if they know how to hold the gun and their body properly….I’m resisting the urge to say, “b*tches be DUMB.” heh heh heh

    1. Michelle says:

      True. One gun I used to shoot was an M1 which tore holes clean through 1/4″ steel… when I was 14 and weighed 90 lbs. This woman is is simply untrained.

  3. Kevin B says:

    Yes everything about her stance and shouldering the weapon is wrong. She had her elbow a little too low and she was leaning back waiting to be knocked over that way. Everyone please remember this is the gun type Joe Biden advised women to use for self defense (a shotgun), a gun that must be properly held before discharge or it will “kick hell out of you” and miss the attacker all together. The AR-15 on the other hand was designed to be more user friendly and the caliber to have minimal recoil (which is what knocked her down in this video=recoil) so smaller soldiers could fire it easily and carry more ammo for firefights! Joe Biden was 180 degrees off in his advice!!!

    1. Pete says:

      So let me get this straight your saying it’s better to put a fully automatic rifle in the hands of an untrained individual then it would be for someone to be trained to operate a weapon properly???

      Ladies and gentlemen the NRA thought process at its core.

      1. Pie says:

        So let me get this straight: you’re saying an AR-15 is a fully-automatic rifle? And your well-picked argument clearly makes no attempt at recognizing the NRA’s dedication to teaching people across America proper gun safety and handling. No one here is saying untrained individuals should be arming up with rifles with the intent to never shoot them unless the need arises, only you. Kevin is stating that if the common man was going to shoot a gun at an intruder, it would make more sense for it to be an AR-15 you you wouldn’t have this clumsy display occurring.

        Ladies and gentlemen, the common, uneducated person spewing nonsense out of their mouth.
