5/1/2004: Skin gun
wolf Saturday May 1 12:42 PM
She had the skin removed under general anethesia.

That is FUCKING GROSS!!!!!

what the fuck, I don't get her point. If I made a pistol out of my own skin I'd be asking wolf to take me in for a while.
wolf Saturday May 1 01:09 PM
Here in Pennsylvania I can do that without your asking ... and for that kind of behavior, too (some states won't commit on self-mutilation).
Undertoad Saturday May 1 02:06 PM
Oops oops oops I was wrong wolf, it was done under a local.
xoxoxoBruce Saturday May 1 02:09 PM
It's hard to imagine what kind of crap you'd have to come up with, not to qualify as "art".
jinx Saturday May 1 02:11 PM
She should have spent a little time in the sun first.... that's one pastey gun.

Maybe we could convince her to sculpt one out of her grey matter. She doesn't appear to be using it anyway.
ItrouReor Saturday May 1 08:53 PM
So...........what happens next ? I get some bad visions involving tabasco sauce and a hot frying pan.

Welcome to the Cellar, ItrouReor.

Nice one, ItrouReor!!

Hahaha. Good show ItrouReor! Welcome to the cellar.

Wow, what a crazy lady. But we've all got to have some crazies in our life, eh? Taken from the article:

Could I point to Van Gogh and say they've never been the most stable peeps in town

xoxoxoBruce Wednesday May 3 07:17 PM
Hi mrfurd, maybe they were belly piercings.

"I bet if everyone owned a pistol, they'd think twice before trying to make a gun out of someone's skin," is what I think she meant to say.
mitheral Friday May 5 03:24 PM
The article is missing, Anyone who read it care to weigh in on whether the reason for the surgery was the gun or whether the artist just decided to do something "useful" with the waste from a tummy tuck?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking.... if I go to all that trouble I'm gonna use the mf'er - a lot. Of course, since it's tiny and doesn't actually work, what difference does it make if I use it or not?
Griff Friday May 5 08:06 PM
I think she meant that if everyone had a pistol nobody would try to make stuff from their skin.
xoxoxoBruce Friday May 5 11:19 PM
I got, if you went through all that healing you'd think twice about shooting.
seakdivers Saturday May 6 12:22 AM
I would like to shoot anybody stupid enough to think they were making a point with a gun replica made of their own flesh.
MaggieL Saturday May 6 12:03 PM
xoxoxoBruce Saturday May 6 12:57 PM
Hey, what happened to "shoot first and ask questions later"?
rkzenrage Saturday May 6 01:12 PM
wolf Saturday May 6 01:58 PM
Not really. The average drug dealer shoot-out involves absolutely no thinking, and a 15:1 shot to hit ratio. And the hit is of an uninvolved innocent bystander.
MaggieL Saturday May 6 02:18 PM
I sure hope to have a hit ratio better than 15:1...there's only 12 rounds in the magazine. ;-) With my carry piece I usually practice with a half-size Q target at seven to fifteen yards and I'm satisfied with the results. Obviously stress fire is a whole different environment.
In another thread, I mentioned a comment made by the photog who took our pics for the Philly Weekly article. He asked a gangbanger why their aim was so bad....the answer was "everybody's high and nobody knows how to shoot".

You can't hold the whole organization responsible for every decision some hick burg uses the local chapter for.
This is a common way that the national press, especially those intent on mud-slinging or out-right lying work... it is a non-fact that sounds good because you can make it sound like it was NRA sponsored.
There was one where very young children were gifted guns in CA by a chapter and it was all over that the NRA was giving infants guns to shoot in their cribs. Idiots.
rkzenrage Sunday May 14 01:08 AM
Especially for someone who has been shooting as long as I have been, and as much.
If I am in an environment where I am ready to shoot there is a kind-of simplicity and instinct that takes over. It is thought, but when I see what I need to shoot and that there is nothing else in the way, I shoot. There is no second thought. That was as a professional hunter for many years, you think twice, you miss the shot & wound the animal, torture them instead of a clean cull. Something that, you may not believe, I still carry each with me.
If there was someone in my home and my wife was next to me and I saw that it was not my son or a family member, shoot. One thought, not family... then shoot.
There just is not time for anything else.
Not going into how or where I grew-up, because I don't assume anyone has or has not seen what I have seen or worse. But, I know how it affected me.
If they are in my home unannounced and they don't live there, they are there to kill us, period. End of story. End of discussion. End of possibilities. So, I just don't see where the second thought comes into play.
