    Armed robbery at donut shop...The robber's gun had the slide racked back

    Am I crazy or did this armed robber have a clearly empty gun with the slide racked back? I guess when your life is in danger like that you may not notice that, but it looks like the guy should have taken him.

    nerveracking

    Boy it sure does look like it's racked back. Especially in the part of the video where he has it to the back of the guys head.

    I am not aware of any autoloader where the slide sits that far back when it's not racked.

    hindsight is always 20 20 but it's looks like there was a perfect opportunity at one point to bash the ahole in the face with the jug or tackle him
    Preferred weapon is a GBU-10 PavewayII but it's a little heavy for me
    For OC I have a Beretta 90-two Italian 9mm. Mi piace molto

    For fun it's an LMT AR-15 w/defender 2000 lower and a slide fire stock

    Yeah it does look like the idiot had the slide back. That's not to say there wasn't a magazine inserted, but it does look like it's back.

    Idiot.

    Doesn't it also look like the face of the robber has been darkened out, almost blurred? You should see some features, white or black skinned.

    I would agree the slide looks like it is in the rearward position. Perhaps the Robber was utilizing the rearward slide as another safety? Perhaps he was afraid of an itchy trigger finger? Or...perhaps he was a numb nutts and learned about guns from Miami Vice and New Jack City.

    That slide was definitely locked back. Either the robber was a complete idiot or... no, I'm going with he's a complete idiot.

    He probably went in there knowing he didnt have ammo but just wanted to scare the guy. He then tried to act like he was loading it and racked the slide back only to not realize the empty clip holds the slide back. Thats my opinion anyways. I showed my mom this and it gave me a good chance to show her more about how a gun works so she will understand what is going on with the gun if she ever used it.

    You can see the barrel protruding and the open breach hole. It's locked back.

    What a dumbass. I mean the guy who was held-up. Really? You don't know the gun is empty? You're taking orders from that guy? Maybe he didn't get a look, but jeez. I wonder who the dumber one is...

    Given that it worked and he was able to rob someone with the slide back like that, there's an even more complete idiot than the criminal.

    I guess if the guy didn't have any experience with weapons he wouldn't have know it was locked back. I would of put a beat down on that guy or tried.

    well,,,

    is it actually possible, that the BG was soooo dumb,
    that he really did NOT know, that he had NO ammo?

    I feel morally obligated to give the donut guy benefit of the doubt that he didn't know how a gun works, and that he just saw what was obviously a gun obviously pointed at him.

    I prefer the pelvis over the head- you can live thru both, but if your pelvis is shattered no matter what drugs you are on you will not get back up....and if you do not die, odds are you will never walk right again anyway....

    i prefer chest -> pelvis

    Haha! If I start pointing my pistol at random people, with the slide locked back, they're probably all going to run.


    There are PLENTY of people out there who don't know the first thing about firearms. This isn't very surprising to me.
