    Nice.


    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six

    Shall we wait to see what really happened? The news media is in the business of selling papers, & advertising. They have been known to blow up a story & errrr welll even make them up.

    " Raunig claims that the 83-year-old legendary business man turned gunsmith held a gun to the photographer’s head and pulled the trigger, but the gen 4 glock malfunctioned"
    Sorry, had to.

    If Gaston Glock gets in trouble for pointing a squirt gun at somebody and pulling the trigger, a lot of 6-year-olds better lawyer up.

    That's rich. Maybe he limp wristed? Well I suspect we'll see quick deployment of the "cranky old man" defense or "these new blood pressure meds I'm on gave me a bad reaction.". If it indeed went down as the photographer claims. Lolz. Gaston you crazy old coot.

    Water pistol or not, if the victim was in fear, it's a crime. Would be true in this country as well. At the very least it's harassment or disorderly conduct.

    Exactly!! News outlets base stories on cheap sensationalism with little or no fact-checking. I also like to say "If it bleeds, it leads!".

    Geez, dude...unbelievable!

    Imagine if that gun had been loaded and was a Gen4? It may have resulted in water to the head (WTH) :supergrin:

    He's an older man (83). Older people sometimes have poor judgement when it comes to sense of humour and the outcome it may have.

    Well, wouldn't it simply be a brandishing job. If they go for something more, it's completely ridiculous. I would imagine that the photographer was a jerk and probably deserved to be told off, but we don't know the details of the conversation. This is why I always need to hear the whole story, not just half of it. Those paparatzi (sp) freaks are smug pricks in most cases.

    Or they have wise judgement in realizing that life's too short and people need to have a sense of humor sometimes and get off their high horse.

    A water pistol? I'm going to guess it had the marine cups...
