Now, I'm No Gun Expert...

..burt aren't you supposed to play this game with a revolver?
The man who produced the hand gun at the Astrakhan wedding was arrested.

He said: ‘I wanted to perform my party trick. I expected lots of applause after I did it and never guess someone would repeat it.’
Well, quite. What are the odds on two idiots being at the same event..?

Depends whether you want a 1 in 6 chance of it going off or a 1 in 1.

Nor was he apparently. Just think of it as evolution in action.

I'm afraid 'Astrakhan' doesn't ring many bells for me. Wasn't it in a Harry Potter film?

Hope the guy recovers, but if not he's definitely an Award contender.

Dumb and dumber?

Natural selection in action. We should pass this game around Westminster. It can't fail - we'd only be left with the ones smart enough to say 'no'.

Apparently it was a rubber bullet. For erasing people.

Without knowing the full details, the "trick" probably involved the little finger of the grip hand pulling the mag release so it dropped slightly, so when the slide was racked, no round was chambered but the hammer would be cocked, leading to a dramatic click when he pulled the trigger.

Indeed.

"Dumb and dumber?"

Heh!

"We should pass this game around Westminster. It can't fail - we'd only be left with the ones smart enough to say 'no'."

That would undoubtedly reduce the numbers to manageable proportions...

"...leading to a dramatic click when he pulled the trigger."

Hmm, sounds like the results if you don't do that are even MORE dramatic. At a wedding, of all places, though..?
